Turmeric Root, Powdered, Organic
Turmeric is used often in Indian cooking, primarily for its brilliant golden-orange color. It contains the compound curcumin, which is a strong anti-inflammatory. It can be a substitute for saffron in color, although there is no comparison in flavor. Turmeric is the main ingredient in most curry powders. For thousands of years, turmeric's main use was as a dye. In the Western world, turmeric often serves as a coloring agent for cheese, soups, sauces, butter, margarine, syrups and mustards.
