Q: What is the difference between Organic and Non Organic?

Turmeric which is grown not using any artificial pesticides, manure etc. Organic farming of turmeric will rely on natural manures such as compost etc. and biological pest control methods such as Neem oil, rather than spraying harmful pesticides which somehow enter in our body causing various health issues. Organic farming relies on methods such as crop rotation, salinity control of soil, predatory beneficial insects, turning soil after crops etc. to make sure  crop is weed free but without pesticides.  Similarly the manure is also natural. An organic farm will use green manure or compost to make the crop healthy. As you can see the above tasks are not as easy to carry out in today’s world of easily accessible chemical pesticides and manures. Thus, organic products are expensive then the non-organic ones.

Q: How much of the active ingredient Curcumin is in Turmeric

The percentage of curcumin varies based on the species. For example, curcumin percentage in curcuma aromatica (used in toiletry products) is much smaller than curcuma longa (which we commonly call as turmeric).

However typically 2.5 to 5% depending on the crop, the area and the processing.  Don’t waste hours on google trying to find turmeric with highest percentage of curcumin.   Your primary concern should be buying a good quality organic powder (non-adulterated one, with required certifications etc.).
