2017 “GLM 40” Highlight in Food: Tumeric

 

The 2017 “GLM 40 Edition” highlights Tumeric in Food.  Turmeric is an herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, which is ground into a deep-orange-yellow powder commonly used as a food coloring and flavoring agent in many Asian cuisines, especially for curry powders. Turmeric powder has a warm, bitter, pepper-like flavor and earthy, mustard-like aroma.  Turmeric should definitely have a place in our pantry because there are so many ways it enhances delicious dishes with an exotic edge. Not only tasty but there are the benefits of this spice including controlling blood sugar levels, anti-inflammatory properties, mood-boosting and weight management. Turmeric is known to stop swelling, kill bacteria and viruses, as well as many other things. Because of all the ways turmeric can help your health, adding this herb to your diet is a great idea. We are proud to recognize Tumeric in the area of Food for its level of importance in the culinary arts, nutrition, and wellness in the year of 2017!
