The turmeric powder we offer you is exceptional and has nothing to do with the common powders that you know, which are only useful for colouring dishes. We peel the rhizomes to obtain the heart, the part with the highest amount of curcumin and essences, which we then slowly dry in the sun and then reduce to powder. Turmeric, along with cloves and nutmeg, is the king of antioxidants – 130 times higher than green tea!
