TURMERIC
THE REVERED SUPERFOOD

 


Turmeric is a wondrous and incredibly healthy spice that has been honored throughout time for its myriad of health benefits. A spice that is native to South-asian countries, especially India, is a super spice that is used in a variety of ways like adding to our everyday cooking, making healing potions for injuries, home-made topical pastes to cure skin ailments etc. 


Uses of Turmeric can be sketched back to the Vedic culture in India, 4000 years ago, where at first it was used for culinary purposes and also enjoyed a reputation of religious reverence. It was first mentioned in 250 B.C in the famed vedic text - Susruta Samhita as a healing spice used for digestive purposes and to also heal deep injuries. One of the common traditional ways of consuming turmeric for good health was to boil it with milk and spices, now known around the world as ‘Golden Milk’.

 

 

INDIAN TURMERIC
THE VERY BEST IN THE WORLD


 

India produces nearly all of the turmeric in the world, accounting for a whopping 94% of the produce. The country also consumes 80% of it as well. Though turmeric is indigenous to Southeast Asia, it has been used and cultivated in India since the very start. Owing to the consistent rainfall and the warm climate of the peninsular region, certain states in Southern India are the leading producers of turmeric and Indian turmeric is considered to be of utmost quality in the world.
