Dorot Gardens, a supplier of pre-portioned frozen herbs, garlic and onions is now offering fresh-to-frozen cubes of turmeric.
This golden spice is the No. 1 selling herbal ingredient in the natural sector, according to Dorot Gardens. In mainstream retail, turmeric sales exceeded $32 million in 2017, a 46.7 percent jump from the previous year.
While turmeric has been used for its health benefits for years, 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 more.
Turmeric can be used in recipes for foods ranging from meat and poultry dishes, grains and pasta and smoothies and cocktails.
Bayonne, New Jersey-based Dorot Gardens says it makes cooking with turmeric easy with its pre-measured cubes. And like all Dorot Gardens all-natural frozen seasoning products, Frozen Crushed Turmeric contains no preservatives or artificial ingredients, and it’s vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and nut-free.
Frozen Crushed Turmeric is sold in 2.5 oz. packages of 16 cubes (MSRP: $2.99 ). Find it in the freezer section at Stew Leonard’s and Best Market.
