Turmeric Powder, Golden


Proud to be named in Bon Appétit as a "Top 10 Great Specialty Food Store"

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

Regular Non-Rush Delivery starts at just $3.95. It's very reasonable.

It's darn fast too. Almost all orders arrive in just a few days.

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

Golden Love

There's a lot of turmeric out there, and some of it is quite good. Some of it is a sham. One of them is stellar. This one. It has me using turmeric on everything. I'm not reluctant to say it...or come back for more.


I love love love the spices I purchased from here! They are so flavorful and smell so good!

Good Stuff

High Quality, Browns beautifully, tastes great

Golden Paste

About every week I make up a batch of tumeric paste. I had been using the organic bulk tumeric powder from my local health food store, but there really is no comparison with Reluctant's exceptional product. It's mellow and deeply colored and so flavorful! And it's organic! Tumeric is such a beneficial root - researchers continue to discover more health benefits. The paste takes about 10 minutes to cook and it goes in almost everything I cook. The ratio is 1C tumeric to 3C water to 3/4-1C virgin coconut oil. Into that goes a little salt, ginger, cardamom, and lots of fresh ground fabulous Reluctant tellicherry pepper. (The piperine in the pepper vastly increases the benefits of the curcumin). B/c piperine dissipates over time, I withhold the pepper and grind it freshly into the pot or pan. This make a divine golden paste. It is such a luxury to have access to Reluctant's superior products. I can't thank you all enough.
