Turmeric (Curcumas longa)

One of the most easily recognizable spices used in middle eastern cuisine, turmeric (Curcumas longa) has a slightly bitter, warm taste. A close relation to ginger, the turmeric shrub is primarily cultivated in southeast Asia and parts of Africa. It is often used as part of food seasonings for spicy curries and pungent mustards. Like other strong organic spices, turmeric is typically used in a ground form for culinary purposes.

Although turmeric has a particularly distinctive flavor, it does diminish over time. To insure the most robust taste from this organic seasoning, it is a good idea to purchase enough for use rather than long-term storage. Use an airtight container kept away from direct sunlight to maximize the lifespan of turmeric's potency.

Turmeric is more than a popular organic seasoning, however, it's distinctive orange-yellow color has made it useful in fabric dyes.

Love it - Everyone should do this...

After learning about cayenne powder from this site, I went and bought some more spices as I was pleased w/ the cayenne.

So bought this and now making my golden milk and loving it.

Starwest will be my 'go to' for all things spice.

Excellent choice

Being able to access organic bulk herbs such as turmeric excuses us from falling victim to fraudulent capsules on sale elsewhere.

So far Very Good!

Read about benefits of Turmeric in the Whole Dog Journal. Started giving it to my 12 year old retired agility dog (had to retire her from agility due to a knee injury) about 2 weeks ago. Have noticed that she is more willing to jump up on her hind leg And has much better all around movement. I started taking it myself this past week. In fact I'm getting a knee replacement in three weeks and will use it along with coconut oil to help bring down the inflammation from the surgery.

Recommended supplier by Whole Dog Journal for high curcumin content. Dog cat & myself all take it with crushed peppercorn & coconut oil for greatest benefit. Great anti-inflammatory for our old joints!

5 stars!

We have discovered that tumeric is very helpful to reduce inflammation. We have been adding it to our horses diets who have arthritis. We have noticed a difference in their comfort. The price is affordable to provide this supplement to several horses.

Tumeric Helps inflammation

Pain in my legs and hips are bad without this product.
I will keep a supply to use for arthritis. I am going to say if you have the pain in joints or arthritis get this powder and use it and see the results.

turmeric is good for you!

I use this turmeric powder to make Golden Milk (search YouTube for the recipe - it's easy), which I drink a cup of every day while my morning tea steeps. I use about 1/4 cup per week, which doesn't sound like much, but it adds up. Turmeric is great for so many things - MS included (which I have).

Tastes great in my smoothies

I also use this in coconut/almond milk and a tad bit of honey. You should try it. :)

culinary herb.

I do not tolerate night shape plants, which includes Chiles, so get the Curry flavor I want, by making my own. Some times I just use Turmeric in may things, some times I add cumin, garlic and mustard and etc.

Questions & Answers for Turmeric

Is the Organic Turmeric Root Powder, that says it is from India, packaged in India or in the USA? Is it USDA certified organic, or is it certified organic by an overseas administration?
Question by: Dessa on March 13, 2014
All of our herbs and spices are packaged here in the USA, at our facilities in California. For organic certification both the grower (in India, in this case) and the processor (us) need to be certified organic. The USDA does not certify products directly, they set the standards and a third-party does the certification according to their standards. Our products are certified to USDA standards by QAI, which is a US-based company. The overseas certification varies but, again, can only be from a company that has been accredited to certify the products.

In addition, we have an in-house lab that tests for things like product identification, heavy metals, pathogens, and other contaminants.
