Demonstrating the herb’s dominance, Natural Products Expo West was abundant with turmeric snacks, drinks, supplements & more.
Walking around the show floor at this year’s Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA, you couldn’t help but notice the abundance of functional foods, beverages, and supplements boasting the use of turmeric (Curcuma longa), the popular anti-inflammatory spice known for its support of a wide range of health indications.
According to market data from Technavio, the global worth of the turmeric market will be $248.3 million by 2021 (with a CAGR + 6% from 2017), thanks in large part to the growing number of food, beverage, and nutritional products featuring turmeric as a functional ingredient.
