A colorful Eastern flair.

Turmeric
(curcuma longa)
Turmeric, Ground

A cousin of ginger root, turmeric has a rich, woody aroma and warm, pungent flavor.

We source our Spice Islands® turmeric from India. The rhizomes, or whole turmeric, produce a beautiful yellow color and mild, musty flavor when ground.

Turmeric is a classic addition to chutneys, pilafs and lentil dishes. Use it to add an Eastern flair to curries or chicken.

Fun Fact: Turmeric is one of the most inexpensive spices in the world. It’s not unusual to see it being used to color rice for an Indonesian wedding (in place of saffron) or to dye cow skins.

Our Turmeric is only turmeric. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
