The golden spice that’s taking the natural foods sector by storm is now available in convenient, fresh-to-frozen cubes from Dorot Gardens, the leader in pre-portioned frozen herbs, garlic, and onions. Frozen Crushed Turmeric is field-fresh and flash frozen at the source to capture the warm, sweet-spicy taste of turmeric, an ancient food long hailed for its healthy benefits.

Turmeric is the #1 selling herbal ingredient in the natural space. And in mainstream retail, turmeric sales exceeded $32 million in 2017, a 46.7% jump from the previous year.

Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for more than 4,500 years for everything from clearing up congestion and healing wounds to treating chicken pox. Today, nutrition communities tout the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of turmeric that link it to heart and joint health, boosted immunity, improved brain function, cancer prevention, and much more.

Turmeric is also revered in culinary circles for bringing earthy flavor and brilliant color to cuisines all over the world. Home cooks are discovering ways to give meat and poultry dishes, grains, pasta, and even smoothies, hot cereal, and cocktails a boost with turmeric.

Dorot Gardens makes cooking with this exotic root effortless. There’s no need to peel, chop, and measure. Just pop out pre-measured cubes (1 cube = 1 tsp.) of Frozen Crushed Turmeric as desired. No waste, no mess – only fresh-tasting turmeric goodness that’s available whenever you need it.
