Is Turmeric Low Histamine?

Yes, turmeric is low histamine. Also known as curcumin (actually its active compound), turmeric is the root of a flowering plant native to the Indian subcontinent, and very popular in Indian cuisine. It adds a very earthy, mildly bittersweet undertone to dishes, as well as a very strong yellow color. It’s actually been used as a food dye for centuries, but that color represents its strongly antioxidant and antiallergic properties. If you wish to use it in cooking, turmeric goes great with an abundance of other low histamine herbs and spices, especially in soups and stews.
