1.Health, health, health : Raw Turmeric is the ‘Golden herb’ of Ayurveda. Its anti-cancer properties are well known. It is popularly used as a spice in Indian and Asian cuisine. Raw turmeric has several health benefits which turmeric powder will not have. For example turmeric oil is one constituents which is lost when you process turmeric. The flesh of the rhizome has a golden yellow hue and it has a bitter, spicy taste. It has two bioactive fractions:
-Curcuminoids: a group of antioxidants that impart the yellow color to the herb. Curcumin is the principal curcuminoid.
-Turmeric oil: a group of organic compounds that impart aroma and pharmacological properties to the spice.
2.Loss of curcumin: Curcumin, the key active ingredient is lost to an extent, while processing. Yes!, Based on what process is used to make powder turmeric from raw turmeric – curcumin is lost.
3.Problem of bioavailability solved: You do not actually need anything to absorb curcumin if you are using whole turmeric. The reason is mother nature has already included an oil in it – “turmeric oil”. Turmeric oil is around 6-9% of raw turmeric.
4.Quality control: You have more control over quality as additives / fillers and colours are added to turmeric during its processing. If we eliminate this process we eliminate a potential area of adulteration.
5.Great aroma and real taste: Raw turmeric has great aroma as compared to powdered one. This is because of the oils present in it. This can add a distinct taste to your food.
