Turmeric is traditionally known as ‘Indian Saffron’ because of its rich yellow-orange colour. People have used this fantastic spice as a condiment, a healing remedy, and a textile dye for ages. It has many medicinal properties, and hence it is known as one of the best immunity boosters. Turmeric comes from the Curcuma longa plant and is characterized by a rough brown exterior and an orange coloured flesh.
