Turmeric, how to use it in cooking
Turmeric is a yellow root that can be used either fresh or powdered in many ways in cooking. Find out more about it.
Turmeric: it owes its bright yellow colour to curcumin, a powerful antioxidant with anti-ageing properties. In ethno-medicine it is considered one of the plants with the most healing properties (mainly the fresh root): it is an anti-inflammatory substance par excellence, it detoxifies the blood, it prevents the development of tumours and it protects the liver. Lately, researchers found that it slow the progression of HIV.
This tropical root is generally sold in Europe powdered. If you have the chance to find a whole fresh root, grate it on your dishes and you will taste flavoury foods rich in beneficial active ingredients. It is excellent to season risottos, cooked vegetables, mixed bean soups and to flavour fresh cheese. It dissolves more easily in any kind of oil.

Let’s look at the reasons behind the growth of veganism in India, as a small yet vocal section of the population turns towards this diet and lifestyle in the largest milk producing country in the world.
In an increasingly uncertain world, we need food production systems that can cope with dramatic climatic variations, provide nutritious diets, and build the resilience of communities and landscapes.
Mint has many health benefits, but in food it’s often accompanied by artificial green colourings. Instead, Galatea has created a green mint ice cream in a completely natural way.
We’re talking about Galatea, a company that produces semi-finished products for artisanal ice creams using high quality ingredients, natural colouring, excluding thickeners and hydrogenated fats, respecting the environment and supporting the less fortunate.
The mad rush to fake food, like fake meat made with genetically-modified soy, ignores the importance of the diversity of our foods and culinary cultures. It’s a recipe to accelerate the destruction of the Planet and our health.
Like with all foods, the quality of an ice cream can be discerned by reading its label. An expert explains how to do this, and tells us how their company steers clear of chemicals, using only natural ingredients to produce an excellent and “free” ice cream.
