Turmeric is now used all over the world. It is widely cultivated in Asia and Africa, including India, China, and Indonesia, and also grows in Japan in Okinawa and some areas of Kagoshima. Turmeric is the English name, while its Japanese name is turmeric, its Indian name is haldi, and its Chinese name is jianghuang.
Turmeric research began in the United States in the 1990s, when the health benefits of turmeric were confirmed. Since then, various health and cosmetic functions of turmeric, such as its ability to improve inflammation in the body, antioxidant effects, and liver protection, have been revealed, and it has been used in supplements and drinks.

Turmeric, called turmeric in Japanese, is also derived from the Chinese character for turmeric.

The original meaning is “bright yellow. It is believed that the mispronunciation “ukkon” was changed to “ukon” and became “turmeric.
The name “Utsukin” has been recorded since the middle of the Edo period (1603-1868), and names such as “Yellow Cherry Blossom,” “Golden Cherry Blossom,” and “Asagi Cherry Blossom” have also been recorded, suggesting that they are classified as the same cultivar.
The first Kanji character described here is an old Kanji character. It is usually written as “鬱”.
