Turmeric is being used in Asia for centuries and is a major part of Ayurveda, Siddha medicine, traditional Chinese medicine & Unani. Turmeric is a flowering plant, Curcuma longa of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae, the roots of which are used in cooking. The plant is a perennial, rhizomatous, herbaceous plant native to South Asia and Southeast Asia, that requires temperatures between 20 and 30 degree C (68 and 86 F) and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. Plants are gathered each year for their rhizomes, some for propagation in the following season, and some for consumption.
The rhizomes are used fresh or boiled in water and dried, after which they are ground into a deep orange-yellow powder commonly used as a coloring and flavoring agent in many Asian cuisines, especially for curries, as well as for dyeing, characteristics imparted by the principal turmeric constituent, curcumin.
Turmeric powder has a warm, bitter, black pepper like flavor and earthy, mustard-like aroma.
