Turmeric is used as a spice, and is widely used in spice mixes like curry or masala and is also used as a food colouring and in olden times was used as paint. It comes from Sud-East India and is grown widely in Asia and Africa.

Turmeric is a wonderful yellow-orange rhizome, with peppery musky aromas. It comes from a tropical plant from the same family as ginger.

It goes through many long stages of processing; once it has been cleaned and cut, it is boiled to remove the skin and then peeled, dried and finally, ground into a powder.

In La Réunion, this local saffron is essential for fragrant traditional dishes, where it shines not only by its powerful colour but also by its health benefits.

This turmeric from Madagascar is harvested from July to October by the Bezanozano people. "Tamotamo" in Malagasy means turmeric. It is traditionally used on the island to spice up rice pudding or the local flan "Koba" made of banana puree and rice flour.

Turmeric is used in many spice mixes in Indian, West Indian, Nepalese, Thai or North African cuisine: curry, tandoori, vadouvan, Colombo, ras-el-hanout. In ancient times it was traded on the spice route between the West and the East.
