What do I Taste Like?
A slightly peppery taste with a fragrance reminiscent of orange and ginger. It's a great spice to experiment with - use when baking bread, making sauces, stir into drinks and, of course, adding to your favourite curries!   


Where am I From?

Our Organic Turmeric is grown in the Kerala region, known as "India's Spice Garden". Our producer works with small artisan farmers throughout the growing process to make farming a viable option, including education in sustainable organic farming methods, making a marked difference in the lives of these Indian farmers. 

Why Fair Trade?
With your help, we’re making a difference to the lives of those who produce our turmeric.

Your Fair Trade contributions are being used for:
  • Ongoing education for farmers explaining new techniques which will help to increase crop yield and reduce waste
  • Water conservation structures to store run-off water for use in the dry season
  • Solar lamps which enable students to carry on with their studies during power cuts and so reduce the risk of damaging their eyes from reading in a poor light

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.

Was lucky enough to receive a free sample of this in with one of my orders. The colour of it is so vibrant, complete contrast to the turmeric I've been buying for years from the supermarket. I can taste the difference when I use it in cooking. Thanks for the sample Lucy Bee :-)

Hi Anneke, thank you for your review and glad that you are enjoying your turmeric. Our turmeric is Organic and Fair Trade, with all of our products we try and find the best possible, so it's great to hear that you like it. Thank you again, Daisy

Lucy Bee's Organic Turmeric Powder is a staple in my health regime, and I'm glad I found it in her online store after my usual store stopped stocking it. Also glad to see that Lucy Bee has reduced plastics in her new boxed packaging, although I'm using the original canister to refill.

Thank you for another great review, Nicky. It's great to hear Lucy Bee Turmeric Powder is a staple in your regime! At Lucy Bee we are passionate about recycling and minimising the use of plastic wherever possible. We have recently repackaged our powders to use FSC cartons which are biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. The inner plastic sleeve is recyclable too :) I hope you enjoy your products and thank you for your loyalty to the brand. Hannah
