    In terms of nutrition, 1 teaspoon of the ground spice has 9 calories. More surprising is that it offers some protein — 0.3 grams— and fiber (0.7 g), pretty amazing in such a small amount.  With 1.65 milligrams (mg) of iron, it also contains 23 percent of the daily value of iron that men need. Women require 18 mg of iron daily, so 1 tsp of turmeric supplies 9 percent of their quota.  That said, it’s likely that you’re eating far less than 1 tsp at a sitting. A tsp may be added to an entire recipe, giving it all it needs for a nutritional benefit.
