Organic Turmeric Powder is made by grinding mature turmeric rhizomes (the stems underground). This amazing spice is rich in dietary fibre, iron, potassium, magnesium and Vitamin B6. Turmeric contains an active component called curcumin which has therapeutic value and may boost immunity. This bright yellow/orange powder is also known to have anti inflammatory properties.
This powder is slightly warm to taste with a peppery flavour. Powders are a great way to get nutritional benefits in a simple, easy to use form.
