In The Spotlight: Turmeric


Turmeric is one of those sometimes forgotten spices but which has so many amazing qualities we thought we really must highlight it, especially as many Foodies100 bloggers love using it too. I try and put it in everything, it has a subtle peppery taste but it makes its way into scrambled eggs, porridge, fried mushrooms, smoothies as well as any stews or casseroles.

A member of the ginger family, turmeric is best known for its anti-inflammatory properties, however it is also an anti-oxidant, a natural antiseptic (yes sprinkle a little on cuts and burns), helps with depression, Alzheimers, lowering cholesterol and so so much more. A little tip, make sure you also have black pepper with your turmeric as the body finds it hard to absorb but the black pepper gives it more of a fighting chance.

For more information Hari Ghotra has a whole post dedicated to the virtues of turmeric.

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at with any questions or comments.

Thank you!

The Flea Network Team
