What is turmeric? The Golden goodness of turmeric
Turmeric is a yellow spice with over a dozen well-studied health benefits. It’s known for being a powerful anti-inflammatory and having a high concentration of antioxidants. Turmeric itself isn’t very bioavailable and is often paired with black pepper, which aids in digestibility. Our fermented turmeric is different, however. The special fermentation process we use at Matcha.com produces a type of turmeric that instantly dissolves and has a higher concentration of health-boosting compounds. It’s also much more bioavailable than traditional turmeric!
Turmeric spice is warm, earthy, and perfectly complements oatmeal cookies or a golden spice latte. This blend also has a subtle heat that adds a pleasant kick without being too overwhelming.
Ingredients you will need for your turmeric spice blend:
- 2 tbsp fermented turmeric powder
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp allspice
- ½ tsp ground clove
- Pinch of cardamom
3-step directions on making your turmeric spice mix:
- Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Mix well until all clumps are gone.
- Pour the spice mixture into your desired jar that seals. You can use a small funnel if you have one to make this a bit easier.
