The health benefits of turmeric have been long known and used in both Chinese medicine and the holistic Indian healing tradition known as Ayurveda, but it is seeing something of a resurgence in western cultures as it is being served in cafes added to lattes. Turmeric with milk has been administered throughout millennia, primarily as an anti-inflammatory but it is known to have many alternative health benefits.
This special blend has been formulated with further health giving spices as shown below. I recommend making the latte with a small teaspoon of local honey as the taste is somewhat bitter otherwise. The addition of a local honey will help allergy sufferers too - local pollen is a wonderful thing!
Turmeric is known to....relieve arthritis, help prevent cancer, can help control diabetes, lower cholesterol, boost immune system, heal wounds, helps weight balance, prevents Alzheimer’s, improves digestion and can help prevent liver disease.
Ginger is traditionally used to treat nausea and morning sickness but also has been known to give muscle pain relief as well as boost the immune system.
Cardamom is held in high regard by the Chinese as both an antioxidant and anti inflammatory
Chilli also has anti inflammatory properties but is also good for weight balance as it stimulates the metabolism
Cinnamon helps balance blood sugar levels
Black peppercorns aid the absorption of turmeric
If you intend to use the mix to make golden milk / turmeric lattes you will get approximately 55 servings out of the tin.
If you are vegan you can use soy, almond or coconut milk in place of dairy milk and substitute maple syrup or agave nectar for the honey.
Please note that this special blend can be used for any purpose you wish, not just for lattes. A few of our favourite uses are :
as a marinade for whole baked cauliflower
sprinkled over roast potatoes
stirred through porridge
add to soups and stews
make a gravy, perfect for roast pork in particular
and possibly my favourite - a pinch in a G&T!
“Their exciting flavours are created by expertly grinding and blending quality fresh spices, based on authentic and traditional recipes from around the world. The result is a superior and aromatic spice for you to experiment with at home. And there’s a lovely range of sauces, salts and spices for you to try too.”
Only the freshest ingredients make it into our sauces. We produce a large range of handcrafted curry powders, spice blends, sauces and sambals that help lay the foundations of wonderful dishes to prepare at home.
We keep low quantities of high grade spices to ensure only the freshest ingredients are being used in our preparations. Our premium food grade packaging helps lock in that freshness so when they reach you and you open them they will zing with aromatic pungency.
Many of the ingredients that we use are whole spices meaning that they retain their flavour longer than their ground counterparts. When your order arrives you will notice the consistency of the powder is chunkier and not as milled as you may be used to.
