Is dried/powdered turmeric just as good as fresh, or should we stick to fresh turmeric? How much turmeric do we need daily for it to benefit our health? Thanks
Thanks for the question, generally speaking powders will be a little more diluted and processed… fresh is always best but powders are convenient for cooking. Just a little bit of turmeric will give you health benefits, the more you take the more health benefits you receive.
