Turmeric

Turmeric is a bright yellow spice native to India and Southeast Asia. Commonly used as a dye due to its wonderful color, turmeric is also a spice with many health benefits. The main active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Scientific studies have shown that turmeric can help alleviate inflammation, pain, reduce cholesterol and improve liver function and digestion. Turmeric has an earthy and slightly peppery flavor and is great in both sweet and savory dishes. Brighten up a delicious curry, add it to a salad dressing, or try it in a fruity smoothie.
