The Health Benefits of Waigaon turmeric
Turmeric is tending these days right from yoga gurus to doctors to ayurveda. While our grandmothers have been urging their loved ones to grab a mug of turmeric milk to cure inflammation, headache or belched tummy for centuries.
“A pinch of Turmeric a day keeps cancer away” said Late Shri Manohar Parchure who had been promoting organic farming since decades in Maharashtra. He had brought an interesting observation about Waigaon Turmeric that this region has registered the least number of cancer cases.
The Waigaon Turmeric has a long history of cultivation since Mughal times and is famous mainly because of its:-
- COLOR AND AROMA
- IT HAS A DISTINCT MUSTARD YELLOW COLOR DUE TO HIGH CURCUMIN CONTENT (MORE THAN 6%)
- IT HAS GOOD MEDICINAL VALUE
- AS COMPARED TO OTHER VARIETIES OF TURMERIC, A PINCH OF WAIGAON TURMERIC IS SUFFICIENT TO ADD A GOLDEN YELLOW COLOR TO THE FOOD
No wonder turmeric is considered a golden spice in the anti-inflammatory food segment.
TURMERIC HOW MUCH TO TAKE DAILY
The average intake of turmeric in the diet in India is about 2-2.5 g by a 60 kg individual, and this corresponds to an intake of about 60-100 mg of curcumin per person per day (Chainani-Wu, 2003).
GI TAG WAIGAON TURMERIC
It has been awarded as Geographical Indication (GI) tag that would help farmers to adopt and grow this crop and this will also bring economic prosperity at the local level.
GI tag will also help to get a fair price for this quality product which will not only improve the popularity among the farmer’s community to revive the production of traditional Waigaon Turmeric but also offer consumers a very healthy and nutritious product.
The waigaon turmeric is organically grown without putting any pesticides and chemicals into the soil and crop.
