#12 Turmeric

Closely related to ginger, turmeric powder is renowned for its numerous superfood powers, including an ability to relieve pain and swelling that may arise from inflammation. It is extensively used in Indian dishes for making curry and celebratory rice dishes. Similar to saffron, turmeric too is often used for specifically adding color, as well as a faint earthy zest to food. More recently, turmeric has been proven to carry anti-cancer properties and even reduce breast cancer risks when consumed on a regular basis.
