Origin of the Turmeric
Turmeric is a species obtained from the rhizomes of Curcuma Longa, a member of the kion family (Zingiberaceae). Rhizomes are underground horizontal stems that send both roots downwards and buds upwards.
It is a plant of Asian origin, considered as a magical plant given its organoleptic characteristics and its undoubted therapeutic and protective properties, especially at the hepatic and cutaneous level (4, 5). It is grown mainly in China, India, Indonesia, Jamaica and Peru. In the high forest it grows more profusely due to the fertility of the soil, the rhizomes are larger and have higher content of turmeric acid. In the low jungle it grows in clay-silty soils (beaches) that were fertilized during the river’s growing stage, leaving the land cleared during the emptying.
