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.
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).
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.
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.
