Product Description

Turmeric Root oil

Uses:

Turmeric powder is used in mustard paste and curry powder as both colour and aroma are important in these products.
   
Turmeric oleoresin is used mainly in

  • Brine pickles and to some extent in mayonnaise and relish formulations
  • In non-alcoholic beverages such as orangeades and lemonades
  • Butter and cheese in the form of powder or granules
  • For garnishing and even in ice creams.

In all these cases, its function is predominantly to colour the product and it merely replaces the synthetic colours such as tartrazine, formerly used.
   
The biological activity of turmeric is as anti-inflammatory, hypocholestremic, choleratic, antimicrobial, antirheumatic, antibacterial, antiviral, cytotoxic, spasmolytic, hypersensitive, antidiabetic and antihepato toxic.
