Product Overview

  • 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.

Excellent spice.

Excellent spice, freshly ground.

Thanks for your feedback!

Not top but okay.

Mum said it's not top quality because the colour isn't as intense and we know mums know it better. But that's okay for me because some turmeric is better than no turmeric and I mainly wanted to use it to dye my yarn.

Thanks for your feedback!

I love frontier products! Bought this to make my golden paste. Give the GP to my dog whose suffering from meningitis and it really helps. I also know alot cancer fighters are taking this too. It is sooo good for inflammation. Again, this is a natural homemade supplement that all should have as well. The products I select are mostly clean without the fillers and additives. Your kind support of my healing cancer naturally is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Thanks for your feedback!

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
