Raw Curcumin vs Processed Curcumin Extract
Even with the widespread recognition of curcumin and turmeric as a superspice, there has always been an argument that: to reap the whole-range benefit of curcumin from raw turmeric, one has to consume large amounts of curcumin, owing to the fact that most raw turmeric contains very low concentration of curcumin (eg. 0.5%). However, processed curcumin extracts contain high levels of curcumin, so taking a small quantity of it will suffice. Yet, many parties opine that processed curcumin might have gone through chemical stages during the course of processing, that might have ruin the properties of the active compounds, thus rendering the product in effect, less effective. However, at Golden Roots Curcumin™, we only use untainted and unadulterated organic curcumin with the highest curcuminoid content of more than 6% in its raw form.
