Luu Bao Village in central Vietnam is famous for making turmeric-flavored rice paper for more than three centuries.
Quy said rice paper needs to be baked for a couple of minutes.
The dough is a mixture of rice flour and white sesame seeds. Turmeric is added to give the rice paper the distinct yellow color. “Turmeric is healthy for you since it can improve your stomach condition,” said Ton That Quy, a 52-year-old rice paper maker.

The rice paper needs to be baked for a couple of minutes. His four-member family can produce up to 1,200 rice papers a day. The rice paper sheets are later dried in the sun for about 15 minutes.
Each sheet of rice paper costs $0.03 -$0.04. On average, a rice paper maker earns $11 each day. About 20 people in the craft village live off this profession.
