There is a lot of information available on the benefits of curcumin.
Curcumin is extracted from turmeric and is beginning to be used extensively in non food applications primarily in the nutraceutical business. Nutraceutical companies pay high prices for the turmeric making purchases for food applications expensive.
Turmeric acreage is not increasing rapidly and prices are not fair to the farmers. Something needs to be done quickly to address the potential imbalance in supply and demand and improve the varieties with high yields and high curcumin breeds.
We also need to address the issue of turmeric for food or nutraceutical purposes. Which is more important and urgent?
