It is widely used in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisine, as well as in traditional medicine. Turmeric powder has a bright yellow color and a warm, slightly bitter taste. It is commonly used as a flavoring agent, as well as a natural colorant in dishes such as curries, rice, soups, and stews. Turmeric is also known for its medicinal properties, including anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, and is often used in herbal remedies for a range of health issues. Additionally, turmeric is sometimes used as a dye for fabrics and is a common ingredient in beauty products due to its skin-soothing properties.
