What is Turmeric?
Turmeric is a tall, yellowish-orange, tubular branched plant in the ginger family. It is widely cultivated in the rainforests of Southern Asia and is consumed throughout the world every single day. It is revered for its yellow dyeing capabilities, which is especially used to produce mustard, as well as for its medicinal properties. These attributes are present due to curcumin, an integral ingredient of turmeric.
