Ground Turmeric powder is made from a root in the ginger family and is used to add both color and flavor to most dishes when cooking. Turmeric powder is a key ingredient in most curry blends and curry pastes, as well as masalas and ras el hanout.

Use ground turmeric with vegetables and rice & bean dishes for an added subtle flavor and pop of golden orange color.

More Information

For thousands of years, natives of India used turmeric powder as a dying agent that produces an exquisite golden orange color. Turmeric powder can replace the golden color provided by saffron in culinary use as well, but won't replace the exquisite flavor. Turmeric’s flavor is a bit bitter, astringent and pungent.
