Organic Turmeric Powder 40g
Country of Origin: India/Indonesia/Sri Lanka
If spices used social media, turmeric would be trending. Packed with savoury goodness, organic turmeric is a newfound staple for any flavour connoisseur’s spice rack. While turmeric would be best described as a musky, tangy spice, it also fits in perfectly with sweet treats and paleo desserts. (Someone is still doing paleo, right?) Add organic turmeric to your savoury Asian meals to create an authentic, earthy taste. The best part? Because it’s flavouring is so strong, you only need to add a tiny bit to get the burst of colour and kick. This means, when you buy turmeric powder, you can stretch its use without skimping on the flavour. Organic turmeric is also an excellent natural preservative, locking in the freshness and depth of whatever it is you’ve chucked it into. Unfortunately, its preservative properties won’t do much to keep the wrinkles at bay - and it won’t make those darn kids stop rolling their eyes at last week’s pop culture references. It’s a good thing you won’t care after trying this organic turmeric latte powder recipe.
How to use organic turmeric?
Organic turmeric can be cooked, consumed, and used aesthetically. Like most spices, turmeric’s uses are dependant on the form it comes in.
One of the things that have made organic turmeric so wildly popular is its ability to enhance seemingly any meal. A small pinch of turmeric can create a deep flavour profile that brings out the best in its spicy companions. It’s a staple base spice in many savoury Asian dishes. Organic turmeric is also used regularly in marinades and rubs for meats and vegetables alike, adding some musky, peppery goodness to every bite.
In addition to the physical health benefits, organic turmeric has been tapped as a mood booster - and as a potential remedy to depression. While this is still being studied, adding in some turmeric to your meals is colloquially known to add a bit of brightness to your day. Looking for other things to brighten? Organic turmeric can also be used to dye your clothes! When put in boiling water, organic turmeric will release its colour properties and colour your chosen fabric. (If you’re interested in using spices for fashion purposes, organic cumin is another great choice!)
100% Organic Turmeric
Country of origin
Turmeric can be traced back to the Vedic culture in India - over 4,000 years ago. Organic turmeric found its place as a major element of both Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine. Native to Southeast Asia, turmeric was widely traded across ancient spice roads. By 700 A.D., turmeric had made its way across Europe and into Africa. Its bold flavour and bountiful benefits have taken the modern world by storm, turning turmeric into a trending spice.
Storage / Packaging
Organic turmeric should be sealed at ambient temperature. The container should be kept in a dry area - and kept out of direct sunlight. When stored correctly in its original box, our dried turmeric has a shelf life of 1.5 years from its packaging date.
Although it’s true that all spices will eventually lose their flavour over time, our packaging works to stretch every tasty second of organic turmeric’s shelf life. Made out of biodegradable, compostable bags designed to lock in every morsel of flavour, you can rest easy knowing that your ingredients will always taste right. Plus, you can feel great about doing something good for the environment! That certainly deserves a second helping of sfouf.
Organic turmeric is an easy spice to pair. It’s a staple in many rubs and spice blends, creating a solid base for other spices to work off of. Organic turmeric is best paired with other daring flavours who are unapologetically intense. Use some creativity with your organic turmeric to create bold new dishes and kitchen disasters - we promise you’ll hit on the former much more frequently than the latter. (Besides, your dog won’t mind the mistakes).

Organic Turmeric Health Benefits
Turmeric is a super-charged food packed into a distinctive spicy package. Its benefits for both your brain and body have been widely studied by some extremely reputable sources. Organic turmeric has also been used in Ayurvedic medicine - an Indian tradition of healthy, holistic living. While there’s an extensive list of health benefits, we’ve broken down a couple of our favourites here.
- Organic turmeric contains bioactive compounds that may naturally (and dramatically) increase your body’s antioxidant capacity.
- A natural nootropic, organic turmeric is thought to lower the risk of brain diseases, including Alzheimer's and dementia, while simultaneously boosting brain function.
- Despite earlier snarky comments, turmeric actually has been shown to act as a physical preservative. It has been linked to anti-aging effects and shows promise for fighting age-related chronic diseases.
The buck doesn’t stop there! Organic turmeric is still being investigated for its effectiveness in a variety of other areas of medicine. Many exciting new findings have indicated that organic turmeric’s medicinal properties are extensive.
While organic turmeric’s health benefits have been clearly established, it should be noted that it isn’t a replacement for modern medicine. Please make sure to seek professional medical advice from a qualified doctor or other healthcare professionals when looking to treat specific medical ailments.
