Curcuma: roots for moods

In The Netherlands six Curcuma growers, including breeding company KP Holland in De Lier, launched the concept ‘Curcuma: roots for moods’. On their website they underscore that the Curcuma plant adds a touch of the tropics to homes. “It is tall sturdy flower stems and luxurious flowers give a room an exotic look. But this plant has even more to offer. The roots of a specially cultivated variety of this plant are edible and known the culinary world over as turmeric. These roots, as well as the plant’s mysterious origins, put you ‘in the mood’ to enjoy life in every respect.” Consumers who buy the ‘Roots for Moods’ curcumas contribute to the international scientific cancer research.
