One of the latest health trends is the rise of the powerful ingredient of turmeric. It’s been added to many food items like turmeric lattes, turmeric juices and smoothies at health stores and cafes, but did you know that turmeric has been used for thousands of years in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine?
Turmeric has long been utilised for its beneficial health properties namely curcumin, which is found in the root of the plant. The root of the turmeric contains curcuminoids that produce the yellow pigment and act as a powerful antioxidant. The most commonly known curcuminoid is curcumin.
Not only is turmeric a very valuable, natural ingredient, fermenting regular turmeric powder can even increase the bioavailability of the beneficial compounds in turmeric. Fermented turmeric powder is more concentrated than regular turmeric powder and optimizes flavour, potency, digestion, absorption and assimilation of the plant nutrients.
