Conventional turmeric cultivation uses varieties of toxic chemical fertilizers and pesticides. For instance, the seed material (rhizomes) is first treated by farmers with fungicides and pesticides (copper oxychloride, dithane M-45, Bavistin).
Turmeric powder sold in the market is further adulterated with starch powder or saw dust dyed yellow with coal for dyes (including metanil yellow) or with lead chromate which is cheaply available. Lead poisoning can cause or worsen anemia, abdominal pain, neurological problems, kidney damage, hypertension and foetal distress.
Organic Turmeric Powder is made by boiling rhizomes of turmeric for 30-40 minutes until bubbles and white fumes come out, then drained and dried in the sun for 10 to 15 days, until they become dry and hard. The dry turmeric then cleaned and polished mechanically in a drum rotated by hand or by power to make powder.
