Double Polished Turmeric

Double polished finger turmeric procured from the farmers around Erode, Salem, and Dharmapuri Districts are carefully processed and polished to remove debris and dust. Double Polished turmeric is smooth to touch.

Polished Finger Turmeric

Similar to the double polished variety these are the same turmeric which is just polished in a single-stage process. This turmeric is usually a little rough in our touch.

Quality of Turmeric

Premium quality Finger turmeric is usually 2.5 inches long.

Second-grade turmeric ranges from 1.5 to 2 inches long. 

Finger turmeric is more preferable for grinding purposes as it is less fibrous in nature. The color of the turmeric powder from finger turmeric is usually mild yellow-colored compared to the Bulb Turmeric which gives more orangey-yellow color.
