Turmeric can also be used to make a tea or broth drink or even added to sweet dishes. Turmeric has been used in Ayurveda medicine for thousands of years due to its curcumin content (read more about curcumin in the blog below). Turmeric comes from the plant Curcuma longa, which is a member of the Zingiberaceae family. Our Organic Turmeric powder has been organically grown and produced in Sri Lanka. The root is harvested, dried and ground into a powder, then immediately packed to maintain the oils.
