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.

Meet The Supplier
Pure Food Essentials was born out of a passion for turmeric. After growing this superfood spice organically on his Sunshine Coast hinterland property, founder Peter was inspired to take a trip to India, the natural home of so many spices, to learn more about turmeric production. After three days on tour meeting growers, local farm owners and processors they discovered just how deep the relationships were. Producers helped local farmers gain organic certification, provided education (both agricultural and for the children of growers) and medical support, helped meet transport requirements and offered financial aid during hard times. A true mutual loyalty and trust was formed and today forms the foundation of Pure Food Essentials.
Today PFE still buys their spices from these same ethical producers. Certified Organic by NASAA (National Association of Sustainable Agriculture Australia) their products are tracked all the way from their source by strict organic certification practices. Once delivered to the warehouse on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, products undergo a final quality check, ensuring a high quality, fresh product.
