Like the ginger, this plant belongs to the family of ginger plants, and they cultivate it in the tropical climate of Southeast Asia.

Mainly it is used as a spice but also as a colorant in the food industry. Nowadays, the Indian population consumes about 80% of the world-produced root.


After the harvest, they cook, peel and dry turmeric in the sun for about ten days before grind it. While drying, the root loses about three-thirds of its weight. Because it is difficult to grind the dry root, they do not sell them but grind them immediately after the harvest.
