Description:
The rhizomes of turmeric (Curcuma longa L., Zingiberaceae) play an important role as a coloring agent in foods, cosmetics and textiles [1]. The main yellow bioactive substances in the rhizomes are due to curcumin and two related demethoxy compounds, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin.
