What is Curcuma Longa?

Turmeric longa is a variety of turmeric that is distinguished by its pale yellow flowers. This variety is commonly used in herbal medicine.

Used in cooking, it is excellent in taste and health.

Turmeric is extracted from the rhizome of a tropical plant of the same family as ginger. It has a spicy and peppery taste. It is usually sold in powder form, but it can also be eaten fresh. Some people call it Indian saffron, if it has the colour, its taste differs greatly as well as its price.

The turmeric harvest

Harvesting of turmeric rhizomes begins when the stems begin to dry, 7 to 8 months after planting. The rhizomes are then removed from the soil and left to rest for a few hours to stabilize their moisture content before being sorted and cleaned.

The turmeric is then sold as is, or dried and ground to obtain turmeric powder. The turmeric powder selected by David Vanille comes from the harvests of southern India or Madagascar.

The origins of turmeric

Native to South or South-East Asia, it has been cultivated since ancient times in India and Madagascar

The first traces of its existence are difficult to define, but it is frequently mentioned in Sanskrit literature from the 4th century AD onwards. It seems to have been known in China before the 7th century CE, and has been known in the West since antiquity.

In the 18th century it was called Terra merita, Bourbon Saffron or Indian Saffron and was imported to Europe by the great naval powers. It was then used both for dyeing and in medicine. Turmeric was marketed in Europe from India, where it is sacred.

Other uses of turmeric

Turmeric is a spice prized for its many health benefits. Moreover, in India, it is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine.

Thanks to the curcumin it contains, turmeric helps fight against cell degeneration and inflammation of tumours. It helps patients with cancer, including ENT, cervical, lung and breast cancers.

Turmeric is also recommended for patients with Alzheimer's disease and helps limit skin problems.

Turmeric also helps in the fight against :

  • Digestive problems
  • Colds
  • The flues
  • Angina
  • Sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Depression

Important: Please note, however, that our body has difficulty capturing all the curcumin contained in turmeric by simple ingestion. So, to assimilate the Curcumin from my Curcuma Longa and for the effects to be much more powerful, simply mix your quality turmeric with the oil of your choice (Rapeseed, rich in omega or other) and add some Black Pepper from Brazil (piperine) or cinnamon powder.

Simply taking turmeric without fat, piperine or cinnamon will have much less effect. If you are taking medication, however, talk to your doctor. Indeed, this mixture can distort the dosage of your medication: pepper allows a better assimilation of curcumin, but also medication. So be careful.

How do I use curcuma longa powder in cooking?

Turmeric powder can be used in both sweet and savoury recipes.

It is also one of the ingredients in Ayurvedic Tchai, a vegetable milk known for its benefits to the body.

Turmeric is used inthe composition of curry and its West Indian ancestor the colombo, to which it gives its beautiful colour. It is also one of the many spices used in North African cuisine and is notably part of the famous blend called ras-el-hanout.

When added to the cooking water, it will subtly colour and flavour rice and pasta. It goes very well with legumes, especially lentils. Used as a natural colouring agent under the name of E100, you can, in the same way as with saffron, add it to any dish to which you want to give a nice yellow colour.

Our recipe ideas with powdered curcuma longa

Would you like to discover the unique flavour of my curcuma longa powder? I offer you 3 ideas for succulent and simple recipes.

The starter: Creamy turmeric shrimps

An appetizer from the gourmet sea to which the curcuma longa powder brings an exotic flavour. Clean your prawns. Brown them for a few seconds on the hot grill. Add salt. Make a cream seasoned with turmeric and a little coconut milk. Place your prawns in the oven in a dish and coat them with the sauce. Leave to thicken. Once cooked, add a few turns of black pepper mill. Serve with fresh white bread.

The dish : Sautéed rice with turmeric

The traditional Chinese dish is revisited here by adding turmeric to bring a little spice and colour to the rice. Cook long grain rice and leave it to cool. Place it in the refrigerator for two hours. Once the rice is cold, fry garlic in hot oil. Break 3 eggs and scramble them in the pan with the oil and garlic. Add my turmeric longa and some ground Vietnamese white pepper.

The dessert : Spicy cream dessert

The famous vanilla cream is revisited by simply adding a little powdered turmeric. However, be careful not to add too much so as not to break the sweet taste of the dessert cream.

How to store curcuma longa powder?

As with most spices, if you want to keep your turmeric for a long time, I advise you to use an airtight container. Prefer a storage place away from light and humidity.
