Turmeric Tales

Diaspora Turmeric

Diaspora is a single origin-turmeric supplier that not only sources the best of the anti-inflammatory root, but also works to provide truly fair trade. Their farmers are paid up to six times standard commodity price for turmeric.

As the founder put it, they’re, “here to put money, equity, and power into the hands of Indian farmers, and to disrupt, and decolonize an outdated commodity spice trading system.”

1. FRESH - same-year harvest, milled every 3 months

versus powders that can be up to five years old, still sitting on a grocery store shelf. Our turmeric retains its floral fragrance due to its freshness.

2. POTENT - made of a pure heirloom variety

versus conventional turmeric, made of a blend of multiple low-quality varieties. Half a teaspoon of our turmeric equals one teaspoon of conventional turmeric in flavor and potency.

3. ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - double-tested 4.7% curcumin content

versus no guaranteed curcumin content or usually below 2.5%, if tested at all.

4. SUSTAINABLE - organically farmed

versus industrial spice farming sprayed with chemicals, grown for yield and storability. Our turmeric is grown for the best flavor, fragrance, and reversing soil depletion.

5. & EQUITABLE - directly traded and farmers paid up to 6x the commodity price

versus a fractured, unjust supply chain that only profits the traders and pays the farmers the least.
