New Heirloom Turmeric is Here.
We're thrilled to announce our upcoming partnership with Diaspora Co., an Oakland and Mumbai-based collective centered in sustainable spice agriculture and direct trade.
Diaspora Co.'s single-origin turmeric is sustainably farmed without pesticides in Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, India, on a fourth-generation, family-owned farm. Their unique heirloom variety of turmeric has a whopping 4.7% curcumin content, and a beautifully floral flavor profile.
While the flavor and curcumin content are pretty incredible, we're most excited about Diaspora's sustainable wage practices — farmers are paid six times the standard commodity price of turmeric to account for truly fair wages.
Diaspora Co.'s heirloom turmeric will be included in all batches of our newest tonic blends (cacao and matcha), and in our latest batch of Original GOLDE (dated from Nov. 30, 2017 or later). To accommodate for our new recipe, effective January 2018, pricing for our pouches will be increased to $26 for 30 servings.
We're excited to continue to offer the highest-quality turmeric wellness products to our community. Thank you for your support.
