Other Common Names

Indian Turmeric, Indian Saffron Colour, Madras Turmeric. Botanical Name: (Curcuma longa)

Description & Use

Turmeric is the rhizome of a tropical plant that resembles ginger in appearance. There are two types most commonly used, Alleppy and Madras. Alleppy turmeric is a deep orange-yellow in colour and has a curcumin content of around 5%. This is the best variety to use in cooking when the true flavour of turmeric is desired.

Madras turmeric has around 2% curcumin content, and is generally used when colour is sought without the strong characteristic flavour. Although all turmerics have a distinctive flavour, when using in curry and Chermoula blends, it has amalgamating characteristics on the other spices it has been blended with. Always buy dried turmeric in its ground form, as it is too hard to grind domestically. Be careful when using it in the kitchen as it stains clothes and some plastic utensils.

Produce of India packed in Australia.
