History of turmeric

Turmeric belongs to the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. It’s a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial that is native to the rainforests of Southern Asia. The ancient spice has been used for nearly 4,500 years and has been celebrated for its medicinal qualities. In fact, pots with turmeric residue have been discovered in New Delhi that date back as early as 2500 BCE.

The spice originated from India and first reached the coast of China ins 700 a.d., then slowly spread to East and West Africa. During Marco Polo’s legendary voyages to India on the “Silk Route,” he named turmeric, “Indian saffron,” because of the properties they share. It is also referred to as “the golden spice” because of its rich color.
