It’s well known now that using turmeric in your everyday cooking is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. Ground turmeric can be added to just about every soup, stew, marinade, casserole, baste, pie or curry. It really shouldn’t be the dominant flavour, so just a teaspoon will ensure that you and your family are getting all of turmeric’s benefits. Add a little pepper and some good oil to the dish and you’ll absorb more of the turmeric benefits. Our organic turmeric root powder adds a lovely yellow tinge to your foods, and a subtle, earthy flavour. It’s an essential spice to have in your pantry, for cooking Asian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and healthy Australian food.
At Ceres Organics we like to keep things pure and simple. That’s why our organic turmeric is just that! We’re ‘working with nature’, using no chemical pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilisers.
Derived from the edible root of the plant Curcuma longa, turmeric has long been prized in Ayurveda, where it’s used to balance all three doshas. In fact, its name comes from medieval Latin ‘terra merita’ meaning ‘blessing of the earth’. Today this sacred plant is reaching new levels of awareness and respect.
The intense colouring properties and warming aromatic flavour of this unique spice make it ideal for use in everything from curries, rice dishes and soups, to comforting teas and tonics.
