Natural, Kosher, Organic & Holistic

Turmeric is a flowering plant, Curcuma longa, of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae, where the rhizomes (a modified subterranean plant stem) are used in cooking.

 

The plant is a perennial, rhizomatous, herbaceous plant native to the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia that requires temperatures between 20 and 30 °C (68 and 86 °F) and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive.

 

Plants are gathered each year for their rhizomes, some for propagation in the following season and some for consumption.

The rhizomes are used fresh or boiled in water and dried, after which they are ground into a deep orange-yellow powder.

 

Commonly used as a coloring and as a flavoring agent in many Asian cuisines.

Turmeric powder has a warm, bitter, black pepper-like flavor and earthy, mustard-like aroma.
