What does Golden Drops Turmeric Paste taste like?

Our customers often describe Golden Milk made with our paste as "Christmas in a cup". And we agree! Golden Drops Turmeric Paste is well balanced with Cinnamon and Ginger. The flavor is warming and earthy, semi-sweet (from the Honey or Agave), with a slight spice from the Ginger and Black Pepper. If you're worried about bitterness, fear not! Cooking the Turmeric in Coconut Oil reduces any bitterness you may think of Turmeric as having.

What is Curcumin? 

Curcumin is a compound in Turmeric that is responsible for many of the health benefits. 

What does Golden Drops do to improve absorption of the Curcumin compound?

First we cook our spices in Coconut Oil, which increases the bioavailability of the Curcumin. Then we add Black pepper to boosts your body’s absorption.

 Where do you source your ingredients?

All of our ingredients come to us through local wholesalers. For our spices, Coconut Oil, and Agave we go through Earthly Gourmet in Portland, OR (check them out here). Our Honey comes Artie's Harvest in Vancouver, WA (check them out here).
