Organic Red Turmeric Powder (Curcuma longa)


Organic Red Turmeric Powder (Curcuma longa)

Slightly less bitter than regular turmeric and naturally higher in curcumin.

Grown in the Western Highlands of Nepal, red turmeric is a distinct variety of Curcuma longa. Our partner farmers cultivate Red Tumeric in pristine organic community forests. Our cooperative of farmers utilizes stringent standards of organic production, resulting in turmeric with robust flavor and powerful antioxidant activity.

Red Turmeric is slightly different than traditional ayurvedic turmeric in that it has a higher content of curcumin — the anti-inflammatory compound naturally occurring in the root.  Red Turmeric is also slightly less bitter, making it both a delicious cooking spice and a powerful anti-inflammatory herb. Turmeric is recommended for a wide range of inflammatory conditions related to the joints, digestive system, and skin.

Sold powdered in 3 oz resealable ziplock bag with gusseted bottom.
