Turmeric is a top antioxidant that is rich in vitamins C and A and curcumin. The 40 g Organic Turmeric by La Caravane des Épices is organically grown and certified under IFS and Ecocert standards. Packaged in France, this product is made entirely of natural ingredients. The rhizome of the turmeric plant is dried and then ground to a powder. It is included in many spice blends used in Indian cuisine such as masala and curry, but also in North African and Caribbean cuisine, such as Ras El Hanout and Colombo. Its flavour is peppery and very aromatic. The organic turmeric selected by La Caravane des Épices expresses all its quality in its high level of curcumin and its beautiful orange colour. The benefits of this spice are many, including its much sought-after antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
In India, it is sometimes used on its own to flavour rice or dried vegetable dishes. It can also be prepared as a decoction or infusion. If you want to try it on its own, prepare a hot drink and add a teaspoon of turmeric, infuse it in honey or try our golden milk recipe.
