Organic Turmeric Powder
Organic turmeric powder, the Golden Spice, is known as a "Super Food" with many proven health benefits. With curcumin as its active ingredient, it is a valuable addition to daily meals both as an ingredient and as an effective natural therapy. It is commonly used with black pepper and coconut oil, however there are many other ways to activate the curcumin.
Turmeric has a range of health promoting benefits due to curcumin, the yellow pigment. As several metabolic diseases and age-related degenerative disorders are closely associated with oxidative processes in the body, the use of herbs and spices as a source of antioxidants to combat oxidation warrants further attention. The potential health benefits of curcumin include better regulation of inflammation.
For that reason, turmeric has been credited with helping reduce harmful inflammation, particularly in arthritic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, helping manage metabolic syndrome (by helping improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood pressure and inflammation), helping improve cholesterol levels, possibly lessening anxiety, and tempering post-exercise muscle soreness. It may also ease digestive woes, including peptic ulcers, and regulate digestion.
Organic farming uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and works with nature to build the fertility and health of our soil while caring for our environment. Organic farming has a low carbon footprint. Pure and simple, just the way nature intended.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2020. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
