Organic Himalyan Turmeric Powder - 250 GMS
ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
Organic Himalayan Turmeric Powder is a mountain special from our upper Tons Valley!
Our turmeric is commonly known as 'Pahari Haldi' and is grown extensively across in Uttarakhand. Turmeric is grown in the lower altitude villages in Tons and neighbouring valleys. These turmeric cultivars are heirloom varieties that have been cultivated by farmers in the mountains for generations. They have saved seeds that they find especially high in curcumin and have been propogating them.
Every family grows its requirement of turmeric in a corner of their fields as per their annual requirement. Harvested turmeric is hand pounded by women in the family and sun dried. The sun dried turmeric is then made into a paste or powdered as required.
Farmers who have turmeric which is surplus to their annual food and seed purpose, sell to earn money. We are supporting these hard working farmers by finding a fair market for their turmeric. We pay a fair price that compensates them for growing turmeric in remote fields which don't even have access to a road. The harvest has to be brought on mules to the nearest road and the transported to our processing center.
We procure dried turmeric from women farmers and then traditionally cold-grind it to bring you turmeric powder that is rich in essential oils.
Our turmeric is completely organic, grown using only natural compost and cow manure. No inorganic fertilizer or chemical pesticides are used. We are in the process of helping these farmers getting their produce certified organic very soon.
