The spice is added to chips, biscuits, seasoning mix, cheeses and yoghurts for a rich color. Turmeric also increases the shelf life of cooked foods.
The spice also contains essential oils, vitamins B and C, iron, calcium and phosphorus.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory effects due to the curcumin it contains. It is used to prevent Alzheimer's disease, improve digestion and protect against colds.
