Turmeric is a product of Curcuma longa, a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant belonging to the ginger family Zingiberaceae, which is native to tropical South Asia. As many as 133 species of Curcuma have been identified worldwide Most of them have common local names and are used for various medicinal formulations. The turmeric plant needs temperatures between 20°C and 30°C and a considerable amount of annual rainfall to thrive. Individual plants grow to a height of 1 m, and have long, oblong leaves. Plants are gathered annually for their rhizomes, and are reseeded from some of those rhizomes in the following season. The rhizome, from which the turmeric is derived, is tuberous, with a rough and segmented skin. The rhizomes mature beneath the foliage in the ground. They are yellowish brown with a dull orange interior. The main rhizome is pointed or tapered at the distal end and measures 2.5–7.0 cm (1–3 inches) in length and 2.5 cm (1 inch) in diameter, with smaller tubers branching off. When the turmeric rhizome is dried, it can be ground to a yellow powder with a bitter, slightly acrid, yet sweet, taste.

This is a recent testimonial left on our sister web site www.valleyviewcornwall.co.uk. All turmeric powder been sold on alternative sites ebay etc. with a minimum of 3.5% curcumin has been sourced from ourselves and if in doubt please ask the sellers to provide an authentic legal certificate with the purchase. We are fully licenced for import/export, and not a retailer, you are buying direct.
''This is really good value for money,my daughter first bought this off eBay and paid four times the price.fortunately the seller had left the valleyview label on the packet which enabled us to purchase direct,which is saving quite alot of money''
