Is white turmeric as nutritional as the orange turmeric?

I have found a south asian market selling white turmeric and couldn't help but bought some. It's white and the upside is it doesn't stain your hands. It's a bit spicier than the orange turmeric almost spicy like ginger root. What's your expertise on this? I never knew there was white available. What's the nutritional value of that?

I'm sorry to say my expertise is nil on this one. We have never heard or seen this before.

My guess would be that the benefits are not quite the same. The beneficial component of orange turmeric is the orange curcumin that it contains. This is the compound that makes it an anti-inflammatory powerhouse.
