Tumeric?

Post by Moonlightdreams » Sun Jul 15, 2018 5:12 pm

Is tumeric safe? It's not on the safe food list, nor the unsafe list, and the Crab Street Journal is selling it. Has anyone tried it?

CSJ has their own safe and unsafe food lists based on the works of Julia Crab and other sources. Interestingly, turmeric isn’t on their lists, either.

I give it to my crabs. I guess I never realized it wasn't on the safe list! Interesting...

This could be an opportunity for a food trial. Looks like some of us have already started.
