Turmeric, dry root

Tax included

Raíz deshidratada de cúrcuma.


Dry root of turmeric

Turmeric is one of those foods or spices that have gone from being true strangers to having a growing presence in our kitchens, either because of the gradual incorporation of curries into our recipe book, for their known properties and health benefits or as a natural food coloring, replacing artificial colors such as tartrazine (with proven harmful effects on health).

How to use it

The dried turmeric root can be used, obviously as it seems best to each one and in the way that best suits their tastes, the recipe that is going to be made or the use that is going to be given.

However, since it is a dehydrated root, its hardness limits the way it is used. Therefore, perhaps the easiest and most common way to use it is as follows:

Hydrate before using

We will proceed as with many dehydrated products: we will simply introduce it in a bowl with water (if the water is warm, it will facilitate hydration) for a period of between 12 to 24 hours. During this time we can check that the turmeric will become more tender and recover its color.

After this time, turmeric will have doubled in size and recovering the characteristic orange-yellow color. At that time, it will be ready to be used.


Turmeric, after hydrating it, we can keep it a few days in the refrigerator, in a closed boat, but it should be remembered that now we must treat it as a fresh product, where the moisture it now contains makes it difficult to preserve.

We can also dry it again, once grated, spreading it on some sheets of paper towels and letting them air dry. After 24-48 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity, they would be ready to use as if it were ground turmeric.

Less common uses

While we are accustomed to associate the use of turmeric in cooking, we must not forget that, given its properties, among which its coloring power stands out, it is also used in some parts of the world as a natural dye, to color clothes, or Even body paints. And lately, in the western world, some artists have already started using turmeric to paint or color their artistic creations.
