On to my review.
I have bought several brands of turmeric, just wanting to taste the differences between them. Of the ones I have tried, this one seems to be the most potent contender so far. Turmeric is supposed to have an almost musty aroma, and is somewhat bitter in taste. Color may vary by turmeric variety, so keep your pants on, it shouldn't be the sole characteristic you judge turmeric by. Not everyone knows there are several kinds. As soon as I got my turmeric home, I cracked open a fresh pack and gently inhaled; it smelled potent, as I expected. I poured it from its foil zip pouch into a storage container and added at least a tablespoon of pepper (fresh-cracked is best) and a couple teaspoons of ground cayenne pepper. (Get all spices non-irradiated for best health benefits). Mix well with a whisk, I added these spices because I use turmeric for health benefits (it has probably 600 or more that have been studied) and those particular spices help you reap the benefits of the turmeric (and other herbs, etc) by increasing absorption. Take your desired amount of this concoction along with some olive oil (or other healthy fat) and you will thank me later!Read more ›
Unlike most of us, I have inherited arthritis, and my joints started to disintegrate in my twenties. Since turmeric is known as one of nature's best anti-inflammatory agents...the Arthritis Foundation sez it stops free radicals in their tracks, reduces swelling, and halts cartilage destruction...I figured I'd give it a try. A 1/4 tsp per day is supposed to do the trick, so I planned to put it in my tea each morning.
But a pound of turmeric?? Tho' most of us wouldn't use that much in lifetime, I did the math and this was the most cost effective purchase, and I could share with friends & family.
Well, it turns out turmeric HAS a flavor, and a good one. This is the power of freshness...when
I opened the plastic-coated foil bag to find a golden powder with a friendly, earthy scent I smelled turmeric for the first time ever. And when I put a bit on the tip of my tongue it tingled, and I realized I was experiencing the legendary numbing quality it is famous for.
Fresh turmeric has a warm, earthy, umami quality, and I can see why chefs use it to add depth to their flavors; it would be a far superior flavor enhancer than MSG. I also understand why Indian cooks dry-fry their spices as a first step...the turmeric absolutely bloomed in hot tea, and a 1/4 teaspoon was too much per cup, more like per pot. It enhanced the natural grassiness of green tea, and the smoky mesquite honey I use, and even after adding cream the flavor and color were pleasant.Read more ›
I can smell the "turmeric flavor" while I have it and the see its strong color too, the feeling that it brings to me that I am consuming a wonder food is alone a good reason for me to continue this ! :)
For people not used to turmeric - please be aware that - turmeric will have a strong color, so use it carefully, keep it away from your clothes and if it touches your clothes wash them immediately. But, I bet this is a wonder tonic and even a medicine when hit by Cold and Flu (or certain other health problems).
I have seen miraculous results when I mix it with luke warm water and drink it when my body gets cold. Although such occasions are now rare, because of my healthy diet !.
