    This variety is a nice, mild alternative to some of the more potent, bitter turmeric varieties. We have tested up to 6% curcumin in this variety.  We love mixing it in with our Mango Ginger Turmeric for a more complex flavor profile in our home pickling.  Grate fresh rhizomes into your cooking oils to infuse flavor to curries, stir fries and other savory meals.  Try adding it to our favorite hot or cold drinks such as herbal teas, hot chocolate, or golden milk.  We like adding to sparkling water along with some simple syrup and lime juice for a refreshing mocktai.

    As with other curcuma longa varieties, Hawaiian red turmeric contains at least fourteen bioactive compounds.  The most well known are the curcuminoids, however a variety of other lesser known compounds provide a host of various benefits including antifungal, antibacterial, anticarcinogenic, gastroprotective, neuroprotective and antioxidant properties.
