    • Curcuma Longa
    • Non-Irradiated
    • Kosher

    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.

    Turmeric is native to Southeast Asia, but is cultivated extensively in India and Indonesia. Alleppey, a region and city in extreme southwestern India, produces two grades of turmeric sold on the US market. "Fingers", are appendages separated from the main rhizome and broken into 1-3 inch lengths. Fingers have a higher curcumin content (therefore, better color), more flavor (because of their volatile oil content), and are the best quality turmeric for grinding. The "splits and bulbs" grade are pieces derived from the main root. They are less expensive, but tend to be lower in overall quality (flavor, volatile oil, color), more fibrous and difficult to grind.

    Suggested Use

    The golden hue of turmeric brightens curries, condiments, and egg, fish, and grain dishes. Its taste is warmly aromatic--a bit like ginger and pepper. In India turmeric is often used to color sweet dishes, while in Morocco it's used to spice meat, (especially lamb) and vegetables. It's used with fish, in baked goods, meat and meat products, prepared mustards and pickles, broths, cheeses, dressings, grains, egg recipes, and soups. Try it with artichokes and potatoes and in rice dishes. And combine it with coriander and cinnamon for a spicy meat or poultry rub.

    When I ordered this product it was suppose to be as good or better than finger root which is what I was looking for. Not true. Finger root is far superior. I checked with my Dr. and now I have a lot of Turmeric and it does not do what we need. I am still searching for "finger root" I rate this product as maybe 2 star Barbara Romaine

    Top brand in my view

    This is a great usable product which I thought would last me for two years. Not even had to keep purchasing more because of using it for many food and preparing my benches to use for safe preparation of food.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    A Little Different Than My Usual Turmeric

    Posted by iHerb Customer on May 02, 2016 | Verified Purchase

    A little different than what I have had in the past, but I guess it's Turmeric. It's hard to say whether it is better or worse than any other Turmeric, but for the price it is reasonable.
