Curcuma Longa L.

  1. #Properties#

    Properties of turmeric

    Turmeric (curcuma longa) is a flagship product of the food supplement. Initially used in cooking for its strong orange coloring power and distinctive taste, turmeric has often been called "poor man's saffron”. "Curcuma", which comes from Spanish, was also borrowed from the Arabic "kurkum" which originally referred to saffron. In English, « curcuma » is translated as "Turmeric" which derives from the French "terre-mérite". This is what this plant was called in the past, certainly in reference to the yellow powder which is reminiscent of mineral pigments. Used to dye fabrics, this root native to India is full of organoleptic properties. It is an essential spice through the centuries (present in colombo, raz-el-hanout or even in popular golden milk) and we can find traces of it up to 4,000 years before Jesus Christ. It is the curries brought back by the British from the colonial empire of the Indies that find their source in the turmeric arrival in Europe. It is now a key ingredient in the dietary supplement. Whether it is to fight against inflammation (such as arthritis for example) or to facilitate digestion (biliary functions improvement, stomach aches treatment, nausea, etc.), turmeric can be used pure or in addition of other plants. Curcuminoids, the turmeric active ingredient, are a powerful antioxidant. Bioavailability (the turmeric effects) is increased when combined with piperine (the active ingredient in pepper). In addition, its effectiveness in the treatment of digestive disorders is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO). Much scientific research is also underway on the effects of curcumin, one of its main components, in the prevention of certain cancers.

  2. #Species and parts of the plant used#

    Species of turmeric and parts of the plant used

    There are around 40 species of turmeric in the world, including many ornamental varieties. It is a short-stemmed perennial, measuring between 60 and 100 cm. A close cousin of the banana tree, the genus turmeric has in common lanceolate leaves and a gnarled rhizome with bright yellow or orange flesh. Turmeric flowers can be of different colours like that of turmeric longa which is pale yellow. Turmeric comes from Asia and belongs to the Zingiberaceae family, like ginger. The parts used are the rhizomes (underground parts of the plant, similar to roots). These are transplanted in sections and then harvested several months later to be peeled and boiled before ending up in the form of powder or extracts as a food supplement. The turmeric success in Europe in recent years has led to the emergence of teas and infusions with this ingredient.
