Turmeric seems to be the drink of the moment and there’s good reason for that. Not only a warming option to enjoy through the colder months, the popular turmeric latte is an ideal choice to boost your immune system due to the healing properties turmeric offers.

 

WHAT IS TURMERIC?

Turmeric is a yellow spice that belongs to the ginger family. It’s often used as a spice in curries to add flavour and colour and, while it’s been used as a medicinal herb for many years in India and China, it’s only recently gained popularity and awareness in mainstream Australia, particularly in the last twelve months.

Turmeric contains a compound called curcumin which is what gives it its healing properties. Curcumin is known to be a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Turmeric, and curcumin, has been used to treat many illnesses and research has shown the use of turmeric has been successful in helping to treat arthritis and depression, among many others. An all-natural ingredient that helps fight off disease and keep you feeling great – we can’t get enough.

 

OUR UNIQUE TURMERIC LATTE BLEND

Our Turmeric Latte is made using the delicious Golden Grind blend which is made up of 100% natural turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper. These superhero ingredients work to provide the perfect flavour combination while boosting health benefits.

While curcumin is a superstar compound, it’s not easily absorbed by our bodies. Studies have shown, however, that absorption increases significantly when consumed with black pepper, which is one of the key ingredients in the wonderful Golden Grind blend. The addition of black pepper in this unique blend increases the ability of our bodies to absorb turmeric effectively by 2000%.

The Golden Grind blend also includes cinnamon and ginger to boost the goodness you get from your turmeric latte. Cinnamon is another spice shown to provide antioxidant benefits and help regulate blood levels. Ginger is a natural partner to turmeric and a celebrated ingredient that also helps boost the immune system and aid against nausea and indigestion.

Golden Grind is locally made here in Melbourne and is vegan, sugar free, gluten free and preservative free. It’s the perfect blend to start your love affair with turmeric.
