Turmeric Root - Fresh
Turmeric Root - Fresh
Introducing Our Home-Grown Baby Turmeric from The Farm on Central.
Nurtured with Care from Our Home to Yours
We're delighted to present our newly harvested baby turmeric. This young turmeric is a milder cousin of its full-grown form, featuring tender skin, a gentler taste, and a smoother texture, all of which make it a comforting and subtle enhancement to your cooking ventures. The Turmeric you receive will be a mix of rhizomes and mother roots.
Turmeric, the vibrant golden spice, has been cherished in culinary and medicinal traditions for centuries, particularly in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Its health benefits are largely attributed to curcumin, its main active compound, which is celebrated for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Studies suggest that curcumin can contribute to the management of oxidative and inflammatory conditions, metabolic syndrome, arthritis, anxiety, and hyperlipidemia. It may also aid in the management of exercise-induced inflammation and muscle soreness, enhancing recovery and subsequent performance in active people. Additionally, turmeric's potential to improve brain function is promising, with curcumin being investigated for its potential effects on brain diseases. It has been linked to increased levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which could be beneficial in delaying or reversing brain diseases and age-related decreases in brain function. Furthermore, there's growing research exploring curcumin's anticancer properties, examining its influence on cancer growth, development, and spread at the molecular level. While the consumption of turmeric in food is considered safe and beneficial as part of a healthy diet, high-dose or long-term use of turmeric supplements should be approached with caution and preferably under medical advice, as it may cause adverse effects in some individuals.
Please note: this turmeric is intended for cooking purposes only and should not be used as seed. We anticipate having seed-ready turmeric later in the year.
