Organic Wise Organic Turmeric Root Powder Review

I really love powder that can be added to your food, or drinks. I got Turmeric Root Powder to review. I never realized how versatile this root is. 

We've used our Turmeric in:
  • Smoothies
  • Eggs
  • Indian Dishes

Turmeric root powder contains a minimum of 4.8 % curcumin, the powerful active ingredient in Turmeric. Most turmeric powder on the market has 2-3% curcumin content. It's nice to know that what you are consuming is going to benefit you. This turmeric powder is of the highest grade, grown under the strictest of organic standards at a family owned and certified organic farm in India. 

The turmeric powder is USDA certified organic by the Colorado Department of Agriculture to ensure our Turmeric meets the highest standards.
  • All Natural
  • Raw
  • Salt Free
  • MSG Free
  • Non-Irradiated   
  • Preservative Free 

The texture in other brands we've had in the past is grainy. This brand isn't at all. It's super fresh. 

I made Organic Turmeric Chicken


2 Tbsp coconut oil
½ large onion
2 inches fresh ginger
1 clove minced garlic
½ Tbsp turmeric
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp crushed red pepper
¼ tsp curry
1 can diced tomatoes and chilies 
1 whole bay leaf
2 lb. chicken (breast or thigh) 
1 can coconut milk
Salt & Pepper to taste
Sprinkle with cilantro (optional)
2 cups uncooked jasmine rice


In a medium sized pan bring 3 cups of water to boil. Add in jasmine rice. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. 

In a large pot add the oil, chopped onion, grated ginger, and minced garlic. 

Once the onions have softened add the turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, crushed red pepper, and curry. Saute for 2 minutes.

Add diced chicken to the pot. Cook for 8 minutes.  

Add the can of diced tomatoes and chilies, and bay leaf. Simmer for 30 minutes. 

Discard the bay leaf, and stir in the coconut milk.

Add on top of jasmine rice. Sprinkle with cilantro if desired. 

I would have loved to do the last step, but we didn't have any cilantro.

Now that I know Turmeric is so good for you, we'll be sure to have some daily.

Cost $19.95 for 1 lb Resealable Stand Up Pouch. You get a lot for the money.

I liked a cup of spinach leaves, 1 frozen mango, 2 bananas, a teaspoon of turmeric, ice, and almond milk. I suppose ginger would taste good in there to, but don't over do it.

That's good that it's not grainy. I hate it when powders get grainy and take away from the texture of the main dish. The chicken sounds fantastic!
