Originating in India, turmeric has traditionally been used in Ayurvedic medicine for its health benefits. Our turmeric is grown in Northern India where it thrives due to the hot & humid climate. It is the roots and the rhizomes of the Curcuma Longa plant that are consumed, giving turmeric its characteristic bright yellow/orange color and strong peppery taste. Turmeric is widely used in South Asian cuisine to create depths in curries and soups, as seasoning to roasted vegetables or as warming ingredient in “golden milk”.
