What is Lakadong turmeric?

Lakadong turmeric is a variety of turmeric that is grown in the Lakadong region of Meghalaya, a state in Northeast India. It is known for its high curcumin content, which gives turmeric its characteristic yellow color and is believed to have a number of health benefits. Lakadong turmeric is often used in traditional medicine and is becoming increasingly popular in the global market due to its unique flavor and potential health benefits.

As per reports, the Lakadong turmeric is said to have 7 to 12% of curcumin content while regular turmeric has 2 to 3% of curcumin content. Given the high curcumin content, the health-aiding and culinary-enhancing attributes of Lakadong turmeric are believed to be more potent than regular turmeric.

Lakadong Turmeric is reputed as the world's best turmeric, organically grown in hilly terrains of Meghalaya, home to the Best Turmeric in India.

This famous, native spice of Meghalaya is widely celebrated across the world for its health-aiding attributes apart from being a perfect culinary delight. Just a pinch of Lakadong turmeric powder is enough to transform any dish/delicacy by enhancing its colour, texture, flavour, and aroma.

Only small-scale farming organizations are involved in the production of India’s most authentic, and aromatic, flavourful turmeric.
