    What is Lakadong Turmeric Powder?

    Lakadong Turmeric is a special variety of turmeric from a place called ‘Lakadong’, in Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya. It is known for its medicinal qualities, as the Curcumin content in it is between 7 to 12.32% (last tested in 2020), which is one of the highest, as against 2 to 3% in most varieties of turmeric.

    A Brief History Behind the Name Lakadong Turmeric

    Long before Lakadong turmeric got its name, the golden-yellow spice used to be known as ‘Shangpung Turmeric’. Shangpung was among the most developed village and was a market hub. Farmers from different villages come to this market to sell their produces and they brought their turmeric along to be grounded, packed and dispatched there. Hence, the name ‘Shangpung Turmeric’. Then eventually, farmers of Lakadong village realized the importance of the spice and started growing them in their gardens and everywhere in the village making it popularly known as Lakadong chyrmit (turmeric).

    What is Curcumin?

    Well, Curcumin is a component that is present in all the different types of turmeric and it is the special essence which gives turmeric its bright yellow colour along with its incredible medicinal properties. Curcumin content determines the value of turmeric. So, the higher the curcumin level the higher is its value.

    What Is the Shelf-life of Lakadong Turmeric?

    Our Lakadong turmeric can last for twelve months if it is properly stored. The powder does not get spoilt, but it will start to lose its potency with time and will not flavour or show its benefits as intended.

    How to Store Lakadong Turmeric?

    Here are a few simple steps to follow in order to keep your Lakadong Turmeric fresh for a longer duration.
    • Store the turmeric in an airtight container and remember to close the lid of the container tightly as soon as you finish using it.
    • Before storing the spice in airtight containers, make sure the turmeric, as well as the bottle, is thoroughly dried because the presence of moisture will cause the turmeric powder to develop moulds.
    • Coloured bottles are a better option to store the turmeric as it protects it from direct sunlight. If you are using clear bottles, remember to store it in closed cabinets or wall racks which do not receive direct sunlight.
    • Store it away from stoves, ovens, windows and do not keep it on the top of a refrigerator because the heat emitted from them causes the spice to lose its strength.
    • Avoid storing it in plastic containers for a long time as this may absorb the smell of the plastic which is not very healthy.

    What Are the Ingredients in Ing Makhir Fit Tea?

    Ing Makhir- Zingiber rubens is one of the varieties of Ginger. It is a common spice used by the locals of Meghalaya due to its potent medicinal values.

    It is locally known as “Sying Makhir” in Khasi and “Iching” in Garo.

    Belonging to the same family as Ginger, it also contains an active component known as “gingerol” as well as some other vitamins, minerals, and essential oils in it.

    Ing Makhir is a highly valued variety of ginger plant sold in the local markets for its strong medicinal properties as compared to the common ginger root. Ing Makhir contains zingiberene an essential oil which contributes to the strong distinct smell of the root.

    The rhizome is rich in properties like antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, and many other more. It also helps improve digestion, relieves congestion and cold, relieve pain, removes bad breath, etc.

    Lemongrass- Scientifically known as Cymbopogan citratus. It is also known as barbed wire grass, silky heads, cochin grass, Malabar grass. Lemongrass is an aromatic plant that yields aromatic oils. Its name is derived from the lemon-like odour shoots.

    Due to its ability to reduce fever, it is also known as “fever grass”. It is one of the herbs to travel along the spice route from Asia to Europe. Lemongrass oil is known as Cochin oil since 90% of it is shipped from Cochin port.

    Szechuan pepper- Szechuan pepper is a spicy external covering of berries belonging to the prickly-ash tree scientifically known as Zanthoxylum khasianum.

    In our local language Khasi, it is called Jaiur that is used as a culinary ingredient. These peppercorns have a sharp, tingling yet flavorful taste and is one the ingredients of the very famous ‘five spice’ powder used by the Chinese.

    Despite the name Szechuan pepper, it does not really relate to the common black pepper instead they are totally different. Szechuan peppers are neither hot like chilli peppers nor pungent like black pepper instead it has an extremely unique aroma and flavour which is slightly lemony and creates a tingling numbness in the mouth.

    Green Tea- Tea is considered as one of the most popular beverages all over the world. It is manufactured in four basic forms such as green tea, white tea, oolong tea and black tea. It is an important beverage for the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans.

    Green tea accounts for 20% of tea consumption worldwide. It is nature’s treasure to mankind. There is hardly any other beverage that has many health benefits as green tea. The Chinese have known about its beneficial properties since ancient times and they have been using it to treat almost everything from headaches to depression.

    Green tea from Meghalaya is handpicked from the tea gardens that are grown at an elevation of over 6000 feet. The high altitude, the traditional method of cultivation, climate and soil allows the plant to bear more shoots as well as elevating its quality.

    It has been used as a medicine from thousands of years from lowering blood pressure to preventing cancer. Green tea has more health benefits than black tea due to its processing. In black tea, its processing is in such a way that it allows fermentation whereas green tea processing avoids fermentation process which results in retaining maximum antioxidant and polyphenol content.

    Cinnamon- It is a very versatile spice and is well-known for its uses in sweet and savoury foods. It has a sweet woody fragrance which is used in every Indian household.

Another component, eugenol is responsible for its antiseptic and pain killer effects.

Because of its distinct smoky aroma and flavour, black cardamom is often used as a substitute for green cardamoms.

Along with flavour, it has also been traditionally utilized to treat various ailments.

    Black pepper- Known as the king of spice as it is widely loved and extensively used by people all over the world.

It is referred to as long pepper as the fruits are long and slender and look a little like dried green chillies as the spikes on its surface looks like a rough-skinned version of chilli peppers. This product is not only a native of Meghalaya, but it is also a solid insurance policy for the farmers of Meghalaya.

    Our Long pepper is sourced directly from Pynursla, Meghalaya and it has a bitter, spicy, and warming taste which is perhaps due to the presence of volatile content such as piplatine, piperlonguminine, piperine and other unique chemical components. These phytoconstituents are responsible for producing distinctive aroma, flavour, and health benefits.
