What you should know about Beeyoutiful and MoreThanAlive Turmeric: This is not like the Turmeric you may find on a spice rack in a supermarket! This is much fresher and therefore much more effective. You may notice the flavor is more rich and robust than turmeric you've used in the past.
Uses: Turmeric is one of our favorite spices and we keep it handy in the kitchen. Like many other bulk herbs, we add it to many dishes (salads, meat dishes, soups, stews, etc.) in small amounts for added flavor, nutrition, and fiber. Turmeric can be used to benefit men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing) and children. It can be used as often as you would like.
Storage: It should be kept in an airtight container and stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.
