DESCRIPTION

Turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) has been used for thousands of years not just for its distinctive flavour and the golden colour it gives to food, but also for its numerous medicinal properties.

A spice that has been highly valued and used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, turmeric is rich in curcuminoids (including curcumin), antioxidant molecules responsible for turmeric's numerous benefits.

Turmeric also helps to relieve the symptoms of indigestion and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Try our organic turmeric powder and enjoy its antioxidant properties!

ORIGIN

Turmeric (Curcuma longa L., Zingiberaceae family) is native to different areas of Southeast Asia and is grown in several countries, including China and India. It is a perennial plant that can grow up to one metre tall and has very intense tuberous, yellow-orange rhizome (1). The spice known as turmeric is obtained from these dried and ground rhizomes (2).

Turmeric is an essential ingredient of curry and is also used in the food industry as a colouring and flavouring agent, and as an additive and preservative (2).

TURMERIC

HISTORY

Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years, and its use as a medical plant is recorded in one of the three foundational texts of Ayurvedic medicine: Sushruta Samhita (6th Century BC) (3). In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric is also considered a Rasayana herb that helps to counteract the ageing process (4).

In Europe, turmeric was introduced in the 13th Century by Marco Polo (2), Marvelling at this spice, he described it as a plant with similar properties to saffron (4). Turmeric is now the subject of numerous clinical trials and research, focusing primarily on the therapeutic uses of curcumin (2).

COMPOSITION

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) approves the traditional use of turmeric to increase bile secretion and relieve the symptoms of indigestion (bloating, flatulence, slow digestion) (5). Turmeric also has neuroprotective and hepatoprotective, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antimicrobial activity, and helps to improve cardiovascular function (6).

Turmeric rhizome contains curcuminoids (including curcumin), essential oil and starch (1). Curcumin has numerous properties, such as its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity (2).

RECIPES

Turmeric is used for medicinal and culinary purposes. For medicinal purposes, the dose recommended by the EMA for relieving the symptoms of indigestion is 1.5-3g of ground turmeric rhizome (EMA).

As a spice, there are many recipes in which turmeric is used to add flavour and colour. Below are two recipes in which turmeric powder is used:

1. Squid with coconut milk and turmeric (7):

Preparation time: 30 minutes

  • Cut the onion into thin slices and fry in the wok.
  • Cut the squid into slices and fry in the wok with the lemongrass and red pepper until the water has evaporated.
