Turmeric (Curcuma longa)
Turmeric is made from dried rhizome of Curcuma longa, which is in the same family with ginger. It is called “the golden spice” and gives curry its characteristic yellow color. In addition, turmeric is also referred as “the healing herb” by the ancients, and has been used as a medicinal herb in Ayurveda and Unani medicine (traditional Indian medical systems) for more than 6000 years.
