What is Lakadong Chyrmit?

Lakadong Chyrmit is turmeric that is grown in 'Lakadong,' located on the foothill of Jaintia Hills in Meghalaya. Unlike other varieties of turmeric, Lakadong turmeric powder contains 7-12.32% of curcumin, which is much higher than the 2-3% of the active ingredient that other turmeric varieties have. The higher content of curcumin in Lakadong Chyrmit from Meghalaya makes it more potent than other products. We are one of the few authentic Lakadong turmeric suppliers selling authentic turmeric at the best price online. If you are looking to buy turmeric powder online, make sure that you check the turmeric powder cost to ensure that you are purchasing only the original Lakadong turmeric powder.

What is the meaning of 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 Are The Steps Taken by Zizira to Ensure the Quality of Lakadong Turmeric?

    Zizira wants to ensure that the price you pay for each of our Lakadong turmeric products is worth it. Here is the list of things we follow to ensure that:

    1. 100% assured safe Zizira Lakadong Turmeric-We have taken a more critical measure towards our mission of providing safe, clean, and pure Lakadong Turmeric. Our turmeric undergoes quality control tests from SGS private limited who provides us with the test report to ensure us that it is free from pesticides and other harmful chemicals.
    2. Zero Adulteration-To ensure that our customers receive a zero adulteration Lakadong Turmeric, we follow in-house processing which involves the following steps:
      • Step 1. Freshly harvested Lakadong turmeric rhizomes are separated to remove dirt
      • Step 2. Rhizomes are soaked in clean water for 10 minutes to loosen dirt
      • Step 3. Then they are triple washed to ensure squeakier clean rhizomes
      • Step 4. Cleaned rhizomes then go to food-grade containers to drain off excess water
      • Step 5. The rhizomes are then moved to mechanized slicers for slicing
      • Step 6. Turmeric slices are then placed in bamboo trays and moved to the drying chambers
      • Step 7. We use the solar dryer for drying the turmeric. The temperature of the dryer is maintained between 50 degrees Celsius to 65 degrees Celsius. This process of drying kills unwanted pathogens
      • Step 8. Dried slices which are now at zero moisture (using moisture meter) are fed to the mechanized grinder for the grinding and sieving process
      • Step 9.Packed in airtight bio-degradable pouches along with food-grade oxygen absorbers and silica gel for longer shelf-life

    What extra effort does Zizira take to ensure the high quality of Lakadong Turmeric?

    Zizira goes the extra mile when it comes to ensuring the high quality of all our products. Some of them are:

    • Knowing where our turmeric comes from-We deeply care about where our turmeric comes from. We only look for heirloom, non-GMO Lakadong Turmeric.
    • Ingredient Evaluation- To provide the world's best turmeric, we select the best from the very people who grow them, who knows the difference between Lakadong turmeric and other varieties. We make the extra effort to partner with farmers from Jaintia Hills whose traditional farming practices emphasize quality and responsibility. We know our farmer partners and we share the same mission. We prioritize the long-term health of the land. The land of these farmers is free from pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and insecticides. They use traditional methods of farming: cow dung, manure, and vermicompost in their soil while cultivating Lakadong turmeric.
    • Quality assurance-We send the turmeric powder to the accredited testing house to rule out the presence of any kind of hazard. We must be sure the turmeric slices or powder that we offer our customer is no lesser than pure, high-curcumin Lakadong turmeric. We send test samples to ensure the turmeric is free from unwanted contaminants such as heavy metals, chemical fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides, and toxic chemicals. Only after getting the favourable test reports do we release our products to the shelves.
    • Extra care when washing-At our in-house processing unit, the freshly harvested turmeric rhizomes are removed and the fingers separated. We do this to remove the soil stuck in between the fingers. The entire lot is then soaked in clean water for about 10 minutes to loosen soil and dirt particles. One batch after another then goes into a roller-drum washer for a thorough 7 to 10 minutes roll-washing under a jet of running water. At the end of that time, the turmeric fingers come out scrubbed and cleaned. But we are not yet done. The 3-basin washes are the next steps for the rhizome pieces to come out even squeakier clean, smooth, and shining, cleared of all physical dirt. The cleaned rhizomes then go to food-grade containers to drain off the extra water. Next, they are fed to a mechanized slicer for slicing. Even as we slice the rhizomes, we savour that wafting special aroma that can only belong to pure Lakadong. A deep golden yellow colour diffuses across the workroom; the aroma that now permeates the air is so distinctive and defining. There is no mistaking the scent of freshly harvested Lakadong, the world’s best turmeric.
    • Drying chambers-We keep three types of driers in place to ensure we pass this critical point: solar dryer, gas dryer, and wood-burning dryer. All three are utilized as required to quicken the drying process so that all slices become devoid of moisture within 4 hours. That will rule out fungal and other microbial growth. Besides, the temperatures inside the drying chambers are well beyond 100°C, enough to eliminate any lurking pathogen. Within the next 48 hours, the slices will have to be fully dried.

    Used for generations for multiple medicinal purposes, high curcumin Lakadong turmeric is fresh with a strong flavour and aroma that makes it one of the finest turmeric in the world and health watchers favourite.
