TURMERIC, for more than just curry dishes!

If you have lived in the Caribbean and spent time in the kitchen with friends or relatives who love to cook curry or other fabulous Indian dishes then you may have seen TURMERIC being added to the pot! In our Jamaican and “Indian” cooking we often use it in its bright yellow aromatic powdered form. Your elders may have even told you that turmeric is really "good for you" and keeps away all kinds of illnesses. 

It’s therefore no wonder that many of us who are familiar with TURMERIC (Curcuma longa) know it as an ingredient used to make curry. In the food industry Turmeric is also used to give some mustard products their bright yellow color! Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant and has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor as well as a mild fragrance. Sounds familiar? Well, minus the color, this sounds very much like ginger. Yes, turmeric is indeed a part of the ginger family and grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia.

In Southern Asia and the Middle East turmeric has been a staple in cooking for thousands of years. However, it is also used as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent in both Indian and Chinese medicine. Turmeric is used to treat a wide variety of ailments, such as flatulence, menstrual problems, bloody urine, hemorrhage, chest pain, bruises, burns, toothache and colic. The Chinese also use it in medicine to treat depression.

Recent and ongoing research has found that turmeric is beneficial to the treatment of a variety of health conditions including Cancer and Alzheimer's. Elderly villagers in India who eat Turmeric daily in their curry dishes have the world's lowest rate of Alzheimer's disease.  It has also been found that turmeric reduces the side effects of the chemo drug  Paclitaxel and boosts its effects.
