Why is the percentage of curcumin important?
Curcumin is a natural active component (curcuminoids) of turmeric, isolated from the rhizome of Curcuma Longa. Curcumin is the natural yellow-orange dye extracted from turmeric. It has been the primary source to be responsible for most biological actions of turmeric.
As turmeric is not with 100% curcumin, its percentage may vary depending on so many factors, and thus the percentage of curcumin becomes an important consideration while buying turmeric powder.
Why the percentage of Curcumin gets varied?
The percentage of curcumin may vary depending on the following factors like:
The Species of “Curcuma”: There are several types of Curcuma species available, such as Curcuma aromatica, Curcuma longa, etc.
The percentage of curcumin varies based on their species. For instance, curcumin percentage in Curcuma aromatica which used in toiletry products is much lesser than Curcuma longa which we commonly call as turmeric.
Origin and crop improvement methods: The percentage of curcumin differs based on where the turmeric is grown. The methods of cultivation, the care is taken in the crop production can also change the percentage of curcumin in turmeric.
According to the research, the curcumin percentage found in crops was available as much as 10.2% for raw turmeric and not for turmeric powder. But in most of the places, it was noted to be only 3-4%.
The Processing techniques: The processing methods of turmeric take the significant part for a different percentage of curcumin. The old methods of turmeric powder making can lead to a decrease in the considerable percentage of curcumin. And the methods of turmeric powder making require heating the turmeric rhizomes. This method always involves loss of curcumin. But the subject of fact is how much curcumin can be controlled based on the process used.
How much percentage of curcumin should your turmeric powder have?
Turmeric powder with more than 2.5% is desirable but if you have a choice prefer the one with at least 3%. Moreover, any brand having more than 4% is perfect. Also, a little higher amount of curcumin has no potential side effects rather than benefits.
