You may wonder if you can use the food-grade Turmeric powder from your kitchen spice rack to achieve the therapeutic benefits you’ve heard about Turmeric.On average raw Turmeric root contains 2-6% of the active ingredient (the ingredient that gives the therapeutic effect). Research has shown that in order to get enough of the active ingredient to achieve the full benefits of Turmeric root you would need to consume 26.3 grams (26,300mg) of the root on a daily basis, that’s a lot of Turmeric! As a culinary spice, Turmeric is not rigorously quality controlled. In quality Turmeric supplements on the other hand, the content is standardised to contain a guaranteed amount of the active constituents, these are called Curcuminoids.
