What do I Taste Like?

Where am I From?

All of the spices in this mix are grown in Kerala, part of the Indian Peninsula, under organic guidelines.

Why Fair Trade?

We’re passionate about supporting the farmers and workers who grow these spices.

Funds are used in various ways including sustainable community projects, such as water conservation; to pay fair wages; support education for farmers in new techniques, as well as education for children; and ensure contracts for all workers.

Packaging

Our aim is to use totally eco-friendly packaging. We’ve moved away from our old-style tubs for this product and in addition to our own beliefs, we’ve listened to our customers to reduce waste in all areas possible.

Something that we have to consider when packaging our products is the durability of packaging and whether it is ‘fit for purpose’. By this we mean that the products have to reach you in one piece, be kept fresh for you to enjoy and that we use materials which are suitable for the product itself.

Whilst our old-style tubs are recyclable, we realised that these are not as eco-friendly as we would like them to be and so we’ve been busy repackaging our range of powders to use FSC cartons instead.

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) improves how the world’s forests are managed so all of our new cartons carry the FSC logo. The FSC card carton is recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.

To ensure the powders are kept fresh and uncontaminated, they are packaged in an inner bag which is recyclable, and then placed into the carton.

We have to get the cartons from the packers to our warehouse or to stores. To do this, we use sturdy cardboard boxes which double up as a shelf-ready tray for use in stores. This replaces our old card trays and plastic shrink-wrap. In this way, we’re reducing waste and plastic.

This has such huge health benefits that I force myself to drink it! I haven’t quite perfected an enjoyable recipe yet but the latte mix is better than some I’ve tried. It is definitely an acquired taste.

HI Tina, it might be worth trying less if you're using this as a drink, for example 1/4 tsp. blended and heated with your favourite milk and you could always add something to sweeten it, if that helps. The Mix also works really well as a marinade for vegetables, meat or fish - I've used it with prawns in a stir fry which was really tasty. We've got other recipe ideas on our website www.lucybee.com, that may be useful. Petrina.

I really recommend this product, it is good value for money, fair trade, organic and has the right mix to get the best absorption of curcumin. I have FMA and read that in studies turmeric was as effective an anti inflammatory as ibuprofen. Ibuprofen along with all other NSAIDs give me awful heartburn so with nothing to lose I thought I'd give it a whirl. After much internet research I settled on trying 3 grams a day as a therapeutic dose. Only one problem, I'm one of those people who finds turmeric tastes like dirt, I've seen it described as an earthy taste, if by that they mean it tastes like actual earth from the garden then yes they are right. So I kept researching because honestly I don't want every meal to taste like dirt and thus I stumbled upon golden lattes. I tried another brand of turmeric latte first which was an acquired taste but there were only 10 servings in the packet and a much lower percentage of turmeric meaning I needed to drink 3-4 per day to get my 3 grams, so not great value for money. Then I bought Lucy Bee,s, same price and 60 servings, great value for money but, I hate to say it, I was back to drinking dirt. However, I persevered with different ingredients and a month later I can now say I have a couple of recipes I like. The simplest is to mix a teaspoon in with a dark chocolate hot chocolate mix, it makes a hot chilli chocolate drink, I fount the milk or malty hot chocolates don't disguise the dirt flavour enough and it ruined my chai latte when I tried it with that. The best golden latte recipe I have found is 1tsp turmeric latte mix, 1tsp coconut oil, 1tsp golden sugar, sprinkle of cinnamon, make a paste with hot water add coconut milk and heat (I use the microwave but you could be flash and do it on the hob like you are supposed to). I experimented with maple syrup or honey as a sweetener but found it had to be sugar to combat that earth flavour and definitely coconut milk not cow's milk, I haven't tried it with almond milk and I don't like soy so I can't comment on that either. I hope this helps anyone else struggling to get turmeric into their diet when they too also find it tastes like dirt, I would seriously recommend you keep persevering until you find a recipe you like, it is worth it.

We really appreciate you taking the time to share this with us and other shoppers, thank you. As you've mentioned, it's always a good idea to experiment with flavours and sweeteners etc. to find what works best for you and what you like best. I'm sure others will find your thoughts very useful. Petrina

Julia A

Great products, I've been drinking this every day. Quite strong taste, but I prefer this to watered down versions with coconut milk and maltodextrin. My only question is how much Curcumin is in one serving (tsp)? Thank you!

Thank you for your brilliant review, Julia. We have worked out for you how much curcumin is in each serving. The Turmeric Latte Mix is made up of 57% of Turmeric (71g in a pot). There is 3.4% of curcumin in our Turmeric (2.4g) and there is 60 servings in a pot of our Turmeric Latte Mix, so each serving has approximately 0.04g. I hope that helps! Georgia

Really yum!

Thank you! I love this as a warming drink and also use it as a marinade for fish and vegetables, or you could also try it in bakes for added spice, Petrina

Richard C

Excellent product, takes all the hassle out of having to mix the ingredients yourself!

HI Richard, that was our thoughts too! Have you tried using this as a marinade or rub as it works really well like that. It's also good to add spice to bakes or breads. Petrina

Is this safe to drink if I am breastfeeding?

HI Holly, I'd recommend chatting to your midwife or doctor about this since we're not medically trained and wouldn't want to give you the wrong advice. Sorry that I can't help more, Petrina.

fallon

Can this be added to milk heated in a microwave or does it need to be added to milk and heated on a hob?

Hi Fallon, this can be heated whichever way you prefer. We prefer to use the hob to heat our drinks. Let me know if we can help anymore. Georgia

Can i ask how many calories in a serving with skimmed mulk please ?

Mix is quite strong so only need a small amount with a cup of milk - I would start with 1/2 teaspoon
