We can not imagine Indian meals and curries without the use of turmeric.
This is an incredible spice and is in the news more often because of the numerous health benefits it offers.
As a child, every time I got a minor cut or a bruise, I remember mom applying turmeric powder to get the bleeding in control and it worked wonders. I am sure most of you would be able to relate to it.
It is a natural antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and most of all it is natural.
There are many other benefits and are mainly attributed to a specific flavouring and colouring compound called curcumin which is present in the turmeric.
Now let us talk specifically about Alleppey Turmeric. This is grown in the region Alleppey and the turmeric of this region has very high curcumin content and is mostly stronger and darker than the usual turmeric available everywhere in India (with an exception to Lakadong)
To put in a bullet point
- It is CURCUMIN RICH. It has the average curcumin content of around 6 to 6.5%
- It is a natural antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory
- Alleppey turmeric has a rich and more earthy and deep flavour than madras turmeric and because of it this is the best one to use it in curries
Do not buy the turmeric from the supermarket shelves, where the curcumin content is mostly extracted from them leaving just the powder which is deprived of all the benefits the turmeric has to offer.
We at Angadi of Spices we make sure great quality spices reach you with minimum effort from your side. The turmeric is procured from the farms which follow organic farming practices.
