Curcumin

Do you know what Curcumin is. This is one of those you learn something new everyday kind of posts. Curcumin is a chemical. its what makes turmeric and everything turmeric touches yellow. Turmeric is an herb by the way. I can't remember what you use it to season. I think its eggs and fish and maybe Indian dishes. The only thing i ever used ot for was as a yellow coloring for my homemade soap. Its extracted as an orange yellow crystalline substance and is acidic but turns brown when exposed to Alkalies. Now that some information I will probably never need to know, but its still interesting.
