Turmeric's warm aroma, bright color, and gingery/peppery taste are relied upon in cooking throughout Asia. It's best known as the spice that gives curry powder its distinctive color.
The most potential and beneficial compound in turmeric is Curcumin. Curcumin is one of the strongest natural anti-inflammatory on the planet.
Use in curry powders and East Indian dishes. Add to smoothies for a flavor and curcumin boost. It is recommended to take black pepper with turmeric in a fatty acid, such as flax seed oil.
