Turmeric root, the bright yellow, bitterly warm spice many of us have enjoyed in various kinds of cooking (maybe without realizing it) is one of the main flavors in OlyKraut’s gourmet Curry sauerkraut.
We use fresh turmeric root, though many people have dried turmeric powder in their kitchens.
Turmeric has also been used medicinally to aid with joint pain, arthritis, and digestion. Its anti-inflammatory properties are making it more and more popular as a plant-based medicine and nutritional supplement. More people are learning now, though, that the medicinal constituents of turmeric are actually difficult for our bodies to access due to their low bioavailability. Luckily, there are some easy ways to increase bioavailability and make sure we really benefit from the turmeric we eat. The easiest way to get the most out of turmeric is to eat it with either black pepper or fatty foods.
One delicious turmeric-powered snack is a simple slice of buttered toast slathered with avocado and some Curry kraut. You could also go for this delicious bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich with Curry kraut.
Turmeric is delicious in many dishes, but if you want to combine the power of turmeric with the power of probiotics, a curry sauerkraut is the perfect solution!
