Turmeric Powder, Golden

All turmeric was not created equal. Just like a fine wine, turmeric takes on the characteristics of the terroir in which it grows. Our turmeric is a specialty of the Wayanad region in India where my partner, Divakar lives. 

We supply award-winning restaurants across the country with our turmeric, and we give you access to the exact same lots. Chef Bonnie Morales of Kachka, in Portland, adores the smoky quality of our turmeric, even though it's not actually smoked.

In India, Divakar sources only whole turmeric root not far from his home, and then he turns it into golden powder. Nothing is added. 

Use in mustard, relishes, dressings and curry. Turmeric also complements seafood and poultry. 

For those keeping track at home, our turmeric contains between 3.5 and 4% curcumin. Satisfaction, however, should be closer to 100%.

  • Fresh, Golden Turmeric Root Powder from Wayanad, India
  • Fresh ginger and orange notes
  • Complements seafood and poultry. Use in mustard relishes, dressings and curry.
  • Spice sealed in food-grade mylar bag
  • Packaged in resealable kraft tube

We normally ship within 1-2 business days after receiving your order.

Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are not business days for us. We need some rest too. ;-D

We put together a Shipping FAQs page if you’d like more details on what to expect.

While Overnight is guaranteed, FedEx is no longer guaranteeing 2 Day service, though they should arrive more quickly than other options. Remember, Overnight and 2 Day items require one business day processing time, but we will ship these out first each day.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed. Would hate for you to be unhappy. The world has enough unhappiness. We're here to make you happy. Okedoke?

Great Experience! No Complaints!

I bought this turmeric for my aunt for Christmas, so I cannot attest to how it tastes or the quality, HOWEVER, I had a great experience with the company. I really enjoyed looking through their website. And since I ordered this right before the holidays I great appreciated their ability to get it to me by Christmas! I would definitely look the Reluctant Trading Experiment when I need fair trade spices in the future. Also AMAZING place for gifts!

New Go-To Spice Company

I accidentally dived into the beautiful world of legit spices after starting a hunt for the best possible turmeric to make a golden paste for my dog and initially chose this company for its larger quantity option for turmeric. The comical connection Scott makes through the confirmation emails and follow ups is hard to ignore and makes me want to buy more half to just see what he’ll say next. I have every intention of replacing my regular spices with their products. No complaints here and looking forward to future orders!
