So, what is curcumas?

Curcumas, also known as turmeric, is a root that belongs to the ginger family. This bright yellow spice has been used for centuries in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisine as a flavoring agent, food colorant, and medicinal herb. Curcumas contain a compound called curcumin, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a popular ingredient in health supplements. It has a warm, slightly bitter taste and can be used fresh or dried in both sweet and savory dishes. In addition to its culinary uses, curcumas are believed to have numerous health benefits, including improved brain function and reduced risk of chronic diseases.
