Advantages – Jiva Turmeric Powder
Jiva turmeric powder is certified organic and tested for heavy metals. We hold these two qualities in high regard when choosing turmeric powder.
The powder is of a darker color than others we have tested. The flavor is mild but still earthy. And it is not too dry, but rather has a very fresh feeling quality to it. We have used it successfully in turmeric tea, turmeric milk, soups, and other cooked dishes.
Jiva Organics has partnered with the largest NGO-run mid-day meal program Asha Patra to deliver school lunches to over 1.6 million Indian children per day. Jiva Organics delivers one meal per package sold, up to 250,000 meals per year.
Disadvantages – Jiva Turmeric Powder
The only disadvantage we were able to discern from this product is the fact that some people may be more familiar with lighter colored powders and be uncomfortable with the dark hue. We found this powder to be perfectly acceptable in terms of taste and smell and will purchase it again. But others might disagree.
Summary – Jiva Turmeric Powder
The Turmeric Guru gives Jiva Turmeric Powder a thumbs up. The flavor and color are rich and interesting. It’s organic and tested for heavy metals. Non-GMO with no additives at all. Just pure raw turmeric rhizome dried and ground to perfection.
