Organic Turmeric Powder has been a staple in India for centuries, but the West have only just started to pick up on how special this root is. Turmeric is a natural source of curcumin and it is this active ingredient which has bought so much attention to turmeric in recent years.
With its bright orange colour (beware of kitchen sideboard spillages) and warm flavour organic turmeric is a great addition to many meals. If you like curry then turmeric is probably already on your regular shopping list, but have you experimented with less common turmeric recipes yet?
Many mainstream turmeric products do not have strict regulations for artificial dyes and lead levels. You can be sure that Forst Wholefoods Organic Turmeric goes through thorough testing to make sure it meets strict organic standards and is naturally bright in colour due to quality and freshness.
This organic turmeric has curcumin levels of at least 2% which means a tablespoon contains about 136mg of curcumin.
100% Organic Turmeric
You can use turmeric daily in your stews, sauces and curries. Ideally,you should mix it with black pepper and oil (after it is taken off the heat) which brings out the best of its nutritional value.
It makes a lovely bedtime drink called ‘golden milk‘. This highlights its unique flavour and offers a daily dose of goodness.
For optimum freshness keep in a cool place away from moisture and direct sunlight. Store in a tightly sealed bag or container.
Allergen handling policies and procedures are in place through the supply chain to reduce the likelihood of cross contamination from allergens, however this cannot be guaranteed.
One serving (7g) of turmeric is high in fibre and a source of manganese and iron. Manganese contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, formation of connective tissue and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
