        The turmeric is scientifically known as Curcuma longa having a light pungent and aromatic flavor of spiciness. Since ancient ages, turmeric has been playing a very significant role in human lives. Because of multiple benefits, it has been inculcated in almost every aspect of life, from foods, medicines, cosmetics, preservatives, to dyeing and coloring of clothes. The light pungency and spiciness with deep yellow color make it an essential ingredient in our day to day meals for not just enhancing the flavor or aroma but also inherently improves many health-related issues. India is one of the leading producers and consumers of turmeric powder or Rhizomes. The south Indian states, viz., Maharastra, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Telangana, produce the best quality turmeric that is highly demanded worldwide. 

        Different turmeric varieties are mainly named according to their growing place. This turmeric can also be distinguished by the percentage (%) of curcumin levels available in them. With increasing % of curcumin content, the health benefits also increase. Hence, more curcumin containing turmeric is better suited for medicinal applications. Some of the most important turmeric variants grown in India are the Salem turmeric finger (Tamil Nadu) having 3 to 3.5% of curcumins, Erode turmeric finger (Tamil Nadu) with 2.5 to 3.0 %, Rajapuri, and Sangli Salem turmeric fingers (Maharashtra) – both have curcumin levels around 2.5 to 3.5%, Nizamabad turmeric bulbs (Andhra Pradesh) with 2 – 2.25 % of curcumin and Alleppey turmeric Finger (Kerala) has highest curcumin content of 5 – 6%. Many pharmaceutical companies mostly demand Alleppey turmeric for doing research activities and developing medicines for allopathy and ayurvedic treatments. Simultaneously, the rest of the turmeric varieties are used in everyday cooking that enhances the taste of foods/meals and also provides multiple health advantages.

        Initially, the farm laborers harvest/plucked off the turmeric plant from the ground and remove its branches or leaves. Then, a jet of fresh water is applied to the soiled turmeric to clean it and separate the lumped or curled fingers from each other. A steam boiler is used to boil the turmeric bulbs to remove the upper skin layer. The cleaned turmeric fingers are left under the sun for 15 days to get dried adequately and sent for polishing in drums. Thereafter, it is passed through the metal detection process to detect the presence of metallic impurities. Lastly, the turmeric finger and bulbs are sent to the grinding machine for getting the turmeric powder, and once again, it is processed via the metal detector and then packed for delivery.
