Turmeric, known as the golden spice of India, is a versatile spice known for its musky aroma, bitter and citrusy flavor, and trademark golden-yellow color. While turmeric is a mainstay in curries and stews, it’s currently trending among foodies and health enthusiasts due to its antioxidant-rich and anti-inflammatory properties. Now you can find ground turmeric in everything from smoothies and breakfast recipes to traditional Indian, Southeast Asian, and North African dishes.

Origins of Turmeric

Ground turmeric comes from the dried root of a perennial plant in the ginger family, which gives it its bright, spicy taste that pairs well with other intense, aromatic spices like ginger and cinnamon. The Spice Hunter Turmeric comes from India, which produces the majority of the world’s turmeric. The root has been essential to the country for thousands of years due to its assortment of culinary, artisanal, and medicinal applications.

How to Use Turmeric

Try turmeric in savory dishes like Elegant Saffron Soup and Moroccan Spiced Chicken Chili or in desserts like Mango Chia Pudding.

To treat my severe osteoarthritis, I put turmeric on virtually all of my food, even in my coffee and rice pudding, so that I have a steady stream all day. This brand gets an A from Fooducate and is a top pick by Consumer Lab (clean and reasonably priced). It’s the only brand I buy.
