Pure Turmeric Powder is a bright yellow spice powder that is made from the root of a plant in the ginger family (Zingiberaceae), Curcuma longa. It has been used in Asia for thousands for years as a dye, food coloring, and in Indian traditional medicine.
Like galangal and ginger, turmeric is a kind of root (rhizome) and has a similar appearance, except that it has an orange hue. Fresh turmeric is also used in some dishes. Extracts of turmeric, curcumin, are under investigation for their potential health benefits and may be sold as a dietary supplement.
It is also known as Indian saffron, turmeric.
The flavor of Turmeric:
Pure Turmeric Powder Turmeric has a pungent, earthy odor. The flavor of turmeric is described as a little bitter, a little peppery like mustard or horseradish, with a slight ginger flavor. It’s most often used for coloring more than for the flavor. If you leave it out of a recipe, you may not notice much change in flavor, but the dish won’t be as golden as desired.
For the coloration qualities, it is sometimes substituted for saffron, but that adds a little bitterness that might not be desired. A suggested substitute for turmeric in a recipe is dry mustard.
Dried Turmeric Preparation:
Dried turmeric is prepared by boiling the rhizomes, drying them in a hot oven, and then grinding the dried roots. Like many dried spices, it will lose its potency in about six months, so you should think of rotating your stock.
Fresh turmeric is harder to find but well worth the hunt. You may want to look at a well-stocked international market if you have a recipe that calls for fresh turmeric root.
Turmeric is used in many spice blends, such as basic curry powder, where it is always on the ingredient list. When the blend has a yellow color, it is most often due to turmeric. It is an ingredient in Worcestershire sauce and is often used as the coloring agent in yellow mustard, relishes, and pickles.
Most turmeric is grown and exported from India, but you may also find it produced in China, Vietnam, and Peru.
