CricInfo title When will turmeric be ready for its full commercial release?
article The first commercial-ready varieties of turmeric are expected to hit the market in the third quarter of 2021.
While the seeds of turmel are still in the research stage, the technology to make the oil for cooking has been developed by a Malaysian firm called Turmeric Spice Company.
Its product is an oil-based, non-sticky, water-based emulsion that is used to cook turmeric, a spice widely used in India, the Middle East and South Asia.
It is the first oil-free cooking spice that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, which will decide whether it will be a commercial product.
This is the second time the company has tested the oil-filled emulsion.
In March, it announced the commercial availability of the first-ever turmeric oil.
Consequently, the company says its oil is the only oil-containing, nonstick oil that can be used in traditional Indian food preparations.
The company says the oil is 100 percent water-soluble, which means it is water-resistant.CricInfo
