Did you know that turmeric is much more than just a tasty addition to dishes? Turmeric does add a nice flavour to dishes, but it also has a lot of health benefits! But what is turmeric juice powder and how does it differ from ground turmeric? Read more in the post below and find out why you should definitely add turmeric to your menu!
What is turmeric?
Turmeric, also known as yellow root because of its yellowish colour, originates from South Asia and has been used as a healing remedy in Chinese and Indian medicine for thousands of years. Today, however, this powerful spice has gained popularity all over the world and its healing properties have also been scientifically confirmed. In addition, turmeric is a very common seasoning in various Indian and Asian dishes, as well as a natural deep yellow food colouring to add vibrancy to dishes. Turmeric is ideal for soups, sauces, woks and even in desserts, for both colour and a tangy flavour. It is a real superfood that should always be in your fridge, on your spice shelf or in your home pharmacy.
How and what is turmeric juice powder made from?
Turmeric juice powder is made from cold-pressed turmeric juice, which has been freeze-dried at low temperature (below 42 degrees) and only then ground into powder. The whole process is carried out at very low temperature, ensuring a high nutritional value of the final product, which is essentially equivalent to fresh raw material. The process of cold pressing and drying preserves the aroma, flavour and beautiful colour of fresh turmeric.
How is turmeric juice powder different from ground turmeric?
The juice powder is made from previously cold-pressed turmeric juice, while the regular powder is made from the root of dried turmeric, which has been ground into a powder without pressing the juice. They are both useful, but the juice powder is even more concentrated, which is why it contains even more useful nutrients, and far less product is needed because of this. Always go for the freeze-dried version if possible – that way you can be sure that everything useful in the product has been preserved.
What are the benefits of turmeric juice powder?
Turmeric is a powerful natural anti-inflammatory aid and a real vitamin bomb, being rich in vitamins C, E and K, providing effective support for the immune system. Turmeric and the juice powder made from it helps the body to resist various pathogens and emerge victorious from the fight, thus protecting the body from infection.
Among other things, cold-pressed turmeric juice powder can help in case of:
- various inflammations,
- flu and colds,
- relieving digestive disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),
- liver problems (including fatty liver and hepatitis),
- inflammatory skin conditions (psoriasis and eczema),
- autoimmune diseases such as lupus, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis,
- diabetes and blood sugar imbalances,
- Alzheimer’s disease (turmeric can significantly alleviate symptoms and prevent the risk of developing the disease),
- cancerous tumours,
- high cholesterol.
How to use juice powder?
Freeze-dried turmeric juice powder is perfect as an addition to a healthy morning smoothie or to a freshly squeezed juice. If you wish, you can also mix it with plain drinking water, or give your favourite dishes a lively turmeric touch. Just be careful not to overheat the juice powder as this can destroy its beneficial properties. Therefore, it is best to add juice powder to cold or slightly cooled foods and drinks.
