Highly concentrated in curcumin, La Plantation turmeric develops a unique scented, peppery and warm flavor with a sweet scent close to orange and ginger. We called it "Flower of Turmeric".
For the 2018 harvest, we now offer another format that lends itself beautifully to gifts: the Krama pouch, containing 50g of turmeric powder.
La Plantation turmeric is so exceptional, thanks to its curcumin rate (close to 10%), its aroma and taste that we decided to call it "Flower of turmeric".
It comes from a special species that grows in Cambodia, with a very small root size and low productivity per hectare. It is grown organically, without any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. The harvesting of Turmeric roots and the production are done by hand: sorting the roots, removing small rootlets, then cleaning with water, peeling and scalding. The roots are then sliced and dried in a solar greenhouse for 4 days. Once dry, the turmeric chips are ground into powder.
Long used as a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant in Chinese and Indian medicine, it brings exceptional health benefits. Main ingredient of curry, it is also mixed in juice, smoothies or deliciously flavors soups, risottos, fish and many dishes. You can eat it every day mixed with honey and Black Kampot Pepper (pepper helps absorption of curcumin by the body). A tablespoon of this elixir every morning and you will be in good health.
The krama is a piece of cotton traditionally worn in Cambodia. The pattern, woven in a traditional way, is very simple, formed by the crossing of white bands and another color. The krama is worn indifferently by men, women and children. In everyday life, it has a multitude of functions: scarf, hammock, headgear, baby carrier, belt.
At La Plantation, our sewers start from krama scarves, cut and sew them into high-quality pouches. Each product of La Plantation is identified by its krama color. Here, we use a Orange and White krama to put turmeric powder.
The powder is put in a bag before being inserted into the krama pouch.
Once the package is open, we recommend that you keep the turmeric powder in a closed jar, protected from light and moisture, so that it retains all its flavor.
