What is turmeric? About the ingredient turmeric. Including 817 recipes with turmeric, and nutrition data.


Turmeric is a spice made from grinding the roots of the Curcuma longa plant, also called curcumin. It is a prime ingredient in curry powder and figures heavily in Asian cuisines. Because it imparts a vivid yellow color to the food it is cooked with, it is often used to color as well as flavor condiments, rice dishes and sauces.

Recently turmeric is gaining a lot of attention for its potential medicinal properties. Traditionally it has been considered a good digestive aid, and some cultures use turmeric as a dietary supplement for this reason.

Since those cultures also traditionally have a lower incident of certain cancers, such as cancer of the prostate,turmeric is now being actively studied as a cancer treatment and/or preventative, particularly for environmental cancers.
