Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant. It is commonly used in Asian food. You probably know turmeric as the main spice in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavour or colour curry powders, mustards, butters and cheeses. Young shoots and flowers can be used in salads or stir-frys. Its most active compound curcumin has many scientifically-proven health benefits, such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimers and cancer. It's a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant and may also help improve symptoms of depression and arthritis.
