  • 1 . Turmeric longa - India Selection

    Turmeric is a slightly spicy and bitter spice, extracted from the rhizome (the underground stem) of a tropical plant of the ginger family, with white and yellow flowers grouped in spikes. It is used for its peppery and spicy taste. Turmeric is most often sold in powder form, but can also be found fresh in some exotic shops. It contains curcumin, used as a yellow colouring agent in food products. It is this molecule in particular that gives curry its pretty colour. Sometimes called Indian saffron, because it reminds us of the pretty colour of saffron, it does not have the same flavour or the same price, so be careful not to confuse them! The 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. It 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


    2 . History of turmeric

    This spice takes its name from its pretty yellow colour, since "junkuma", from which the name "turmeric" is derived, means "which gives colour" in Sanskrit. Originally from South or Southeast Asia, and cultivated since ancient times in India, the turmeric we know is the result of many selections, to the point that its link with wild turmeric is almost non-existent genetically speaking. It is frequently mentioned in Sanskrit literature from the 4th century AD.

    It seems to have been known in China before the 7th century AD, and has been known in the West since antiquity. In the 18th century, it was called Terra merita or turmeric and was imported into Europe by the major naval powers. It was then used for both dyeing and medicine. Turmeric was traded from India, where it is sacred, through the spice route between East and West. He has thus crossed countries


    3 . What to do in the kitchen with your turmeric

    In the salty

    Turmeric is used in the composition of curry and its Caribbean ancestor, Colombo, to which it gives its beautiful colour. It is also one of the many spices used in Maghreb cuisine and is part of the famous mixture called ras-el-hanout. Added to the cooking water, it will subtly colour and perfume rice and pasta. It goes very well with legumes and especially lentils. Used as a natural colouring agent under the name E100, you can add it in the same way to any dish to which you want to give a pretty yellow colour

    In the sweetness

    Turmeric goes well with many sweet flavours and will give a pretty colour to your desserts. Add some to your porridges and chia seed puddings for "healthy" desserts. It will also be delicious in your biscuits, cookies and scones of all kinds to which it will give a special flavor. It will also flavour rice pudding and semolina cakes very pleasantly, as well as Indian desserts.

    In beverages

    Turmeric is the main ingredient of Tchai ayuverdique, a golden-coloured vegetable milk known for its benefits for the body. It is very easy to do and very comforting in winter to help fight colds and temporary fatigue.

    4. Virtues and Benefits of Turmeric

    In addition to being good to taste, turmeric has unparalleled virtues! Digestive problems, colds, flu, angina (sore throat, cough), it is a real concentrate of benefits. If the Indians had long understood all the powers of turmeric (in India, turmeric is the most widely used spice and is one of the most remarkable spices in Ayurvedic medicine), European medicine is lagging behind. It had looked at its properties but today, researchers are discovering and confirming some of its uses

    What are the beneficial effects of turmeric?

    Curcumin is the molecule contained in turmeric that gives it all its virtues. It fights, among other things, against cellular degeneration and inflammation, both of which are often at the origin of the appearance of tumours. This explains the efficacy attributed to it against cancers of the ENT sphere, lung, cervix, skin and breast among others. It could prevent cancer but also fight it. However, talk to your doctor so that curcumin does not conflict with your treatment.

    Even if you are not currently subject to these ailments, turmeric can be beneficial to you: it is an antioxidant. This means that it can slow down cell aging. He also fights diabetes (lowering blood sugar) but has a reputation for slowing down and sometimes even preventing the onset of Alzheimer's syndrome. Indeed, the latter is due to neuronal inflammation. Its antioxidant virtues then come into play and make it possible not only to prevent its appearance but also to contain it once contacted!
    And even for minor everyday ailments, its concentration of vitamins, minerals and iron allows you to cope with colds, sore throats, flu and other heartburn. It can even fight acne, eczema and psoriasis!

    Note, however, that our body has difficulty capturing all the curcumin contained in turmeric by simple ingestion. Thus, to assimilate the Curcumin of my Turmeric and that the effects are much more powerful, it is enough to mix your quality turmeric with the oil of your choice (Rapeseed, rich in omega or other) and to add 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 any medication, however, talk to your doctor. Indeed, this mixture can distort the dosage of your medications: pepper allows you to better assimilate curcumin but also medications. So be careful

    To assimilate the Curcumin from my Turmeric and that the effects are much more powerful, simply mix your quality turmeric with the oil of your choice (rapeseed, rich in omega or other) and add it to your diet add Brazilian Black Pepper (piperine). Thank you for taking this advice to enjoy the benefits below.
