Blue turmeric is found in the jungle forests of Nghe An, Vietnam, where farmers grow this medicinal variety for it's incredibly high curcuminoid levels. Most of what they grow gets turned into a turmeric starch. They wash, peel and pulp the fresh turmeric, press it into a juice and collect the starch that settles at the bottom of the buckets. Once it's dried, it turns into a chalky, almost flavorless powder that is used as a powerful health supplement in Vietnam.Turmeric has been used in Asia for thousands of years and is a major part of Ayurveda, Siddha and traditional Chinese medicine. It was first used as a dye, and then later for its properties in folk medicine.This variety is selected and maintained by Florida seed steward Mark Homesteader of Homestead Heirloom Gardens
