We have earned a place of reputation in this era of stiff market competition, by offering Turmeric Finger. It is the dried rhizome of a herbaceous perennial. Turmeric is called Indian saffron due to its brilliant yellow color. This is characterized with a fragrant, peppery aroma and is slightly bitter in taste with a musky flavor. Turmeric Finger has many medicinal properties thus used in Ayurveda. Also, it is used as a readily available antiseptic for cuts, burns and bruises. It is also used as an antibacterial agent.
Turmeric contains up to 5% essential oil and up to 5.5% curcumin, poly phenol (pH indicator). In turmeric most important for the aroma are Turmerone, turmerone, Zingiberene. Conjugated Diarylheptanoids are responsible for the orange colour and probably for the mild spicy taste.
Harvest Season : February - April
