India is the world’s top producer and consumer of turmeric, it grows underground. Indian dishes are never complete without turmeric. Food makers use turmeric to add golden colour to the recipes and to balance the taste of the dish. They look like ginger. It is said that turmeric is an ancient medicine used to cure many diseases. It is also used for hay fever, depression, high cholesterol, a type of liver disease, itching, inflammatory bowel disease, stress, and many other conditions. It is also used to anoint deities. More importantly, when India had to choose the colour of the flag, it chose green to represent fertile land, white to represent truth and saffron to represent sacrifice, so turmeric is also known as a sacred colour.
