Turmeric is an essential component of Indian cuisine. Curcumin, a chemical found in the item, is well-known for its health benefits, colour, and scent. Turmeric from Lakadong, one of the world's best types, has 12 percent curcumin, compared to 3 to 5 percent in store-bought turmeric. This turmeric variety is grown in a tiny village in the western foothills of the Jaintia Hills in Meghalaya, India.

Curcumin, which is plentiful in Lakadong turmeric, is recognised for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities. The items, which have a strong flavour and are brightly coloured, are also sold to many places throughout the world.
