Our organically grown New Harvest Turmeric has an exceptionally sweet, floral flavor without the metallic bitterness found in lower-quality turmeric. Our turmeric is grown organically in southern India by Dr. Salunhke, an expert farmer specializing in sustainable agricultural techniques. It is perfect for both sweet and savory applications, in curries and other dishes as well as in turmeric teas and lattes. Its high curcumin content (4%) makes it ideal for both culinary and nutritional uses. Add it to sauces, stews, salad dressing and baked goods for bright color, depth of flavor and wellness. Our turmeric is free of lead, with less than 0.1 parts per million (ppm). It has been tested in an internationally accredited food safety testing lab, and the heavy metal test results can be found in the photos on this page.
