TURMERIC GROUND - CERTIFIED ORGANIC 5% CURCUMIN
Our turmeric (sometimes mistakenly spelled "Tumeric") is a completely natural and organic product which has not undergone processing like general household turmeric most consumers are used to.
It is completely unadulterated, 100% pure organic turmeric.
This, along with the high level of curcumin present gives it a much richer, darker colour. Volatile, or essential oils in turmeric contain chemical compounds which when combined, are responsible for the distinctive aroma and flavour. These volatile oils are mostly lost during processing, however due to the pure nature of our turmeric, it has retained >5-7.5% volatile oil content.
CURCUMIN is the main active ingredient in turmeric. The richer and deeper the colour, the higher the curcumin level but not only that, the less processing has occurred. Turmeric with a curcumin content level of only 2-3% results in a reduction of potential health benefits. Curcumin is a naturally strong antioxidant and is well known for it's anti-inflammatory properties. For this reason, turmeric has become popular as a means of assisting with joint issues such as arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Consuming with a little black pepper will aid with absorption into the blood stream.
Turmeric is considered in India as holy and has been used in Hindu ceremonies for t
housands of years. It continues to be popular in India for both wedding and religious ceremonies.

It's also been suggested that turmeric may contribute to the possible slowing down symptoms of Alzheimers disease. It may also be beneficial for the skin.
Apart from the many health benefits, turmeric is also a delicious spice known as the Queen of Spices, popularly used in Indian cuisine. However, it's growth in popularity has now seen it incorporated into many foods/recipes of all cuisines, both savoury and sweet dishes, and it's even used by cafes to create the very trendy Turmeric Latte.
