Turmeric is exotic root-herb, a common spice used in Asian food, derived from the turmeric plant. It is yellow with a sweet and pleasant fragrance. The powder has a warm and bitter taste due to a strong antioxidant curcumin with anti-inflammatory effects.
Turmeric is rich in essential nutrients and minerals, including magnesium, potassium and calcium. It is an excellent source of fibre, vitamin B6 and zinc, in addition to a good amount of vitamin C.
