Rich, golden yellow Turmeric powder is a store-cupboard essential, becoming increasingly popular because of its health properties. One of the active ingredients is curcumin which has a distinctly earthy, slightly bitter, almost peppery flavour with a mustardy smell. As well as providing flavour, it imparts a rich yellow colour to food like curries & is also widely using in pickling & mustards.

As well as being a vital part in many Asian cuisines, curcumin has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant & antiviral characteristics; other compounds have antibacterial & antifungal properties too.

As such, Turmeric powder is playing an increasingly popular part of many modern diets as its health benefits & medicinal qualities are becoming more widely understood. Turmeric Milk, or Golden Milk, is one of the most indulgent recipes using this fabulous spice.

Add to curries, tagines, soups, stews, sauces & marinades; it is even popular as a substitute for saffron in rice dishes.
