Spice Sanctuary Organic Alleppey Turmeric



Alleppey grade Turmeric is the best grade and our Spice Sanctuary Turmeric contains a minimum of 5% curcumin content (the highest currently available in Canada for culinary use). Curcumin is the core component of Turmeric, that is what gives its well documented anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties. The more curcumin the Turmeric has the better.

This product is all certified organic and there are no other non-spice ingredients (commonly found even in organic blends such as maltodextrin, citric acid, silicion dioxide). All of our spices are non-irradiated and non-fumigated.

Delivered directly from coops and farmers around the world with the shortest supply chain possible, this spice is hand harvested, recent harvest, best grade and purchased and blended in small batches optimizing freshness, potency and purity even more. Furthermore, they are packaged only the once and done so in Canada to maximize quality control and minimize any dilution of the superior quality we have diligently worked to source. Spice Sanctuary is the only Canadian spice supplier to deliver organic spices and blends in such a detailed and sustainable way.

Miranda’s Memo

When I cook dinner, I love incorporating new spices into my meals. However, there are many spices found in grocery stores that are ladened with chemicals and flavours. Spice Sanctuary spices are 100% organic and contain no other non-spice ingredients. If you find some of your dishes a bit bland tasting, these spices will not only add incredible flavour, but they are also nutritious and beneficial to our health. I love the smell of the Spice Sanctuary spices- they are reminiscent of India and each blend has a unique smell that is exceptionally warming to each dish. The spices come in 10 different flavours- Turmeric, Cinnamon, Asafoetida, Sweet, Moroccan, Super Spice, Butter Chicken, Mexican Spice, Middle East Feast, and Jamaican me Tasty. So what are the health benefits of each of these spices? Let’s take a look and I’ll tell you why I LOVE Spice Sanctuary and the significance of their nutritional properties!


  • Alleppey grade turmeric has one of the highest colours and curcumin contents and it is the deepest in flavor
  • Curcumin is the compound found in turmeric, which has very powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidants properties to the body
  • If you have any inflammation in your body, curcumin will help relieve the inflammation
  • The higher curcumin properties, the better it is


Organic Ingredients: Alleppey Turmeric

A 50g bag will yield approximately 25 teaspoons.

Suitable for a gluten free, nut free and vegan diet.

The bioavailability of Turmeric is said to significantly enhance when combined with a good quality black pepper with good piperine content. So try and get into the habit of adding a little turmeric when reaching for your peppermill to season your food. Add a little to smoothies, rice, quinoa, stews, pasta sauces, soups, curries, sauces such as hollandaise and bechamel, and steamed veggies. The list goes on.

For more inspiration on how to use this very popular blend, visit our blog on our website or email us.

Always store in an airtight container in a cool, dry and dark place and not near your stove.

Quintessentially Indian, this must have spice delivers warming notes of ginger and citrus with a smooth earthiness and non-bitter finish like no other turmeric. This grade of turmeric is proof that not all spices are created equal so you will not be disappointed.


It is worth noting that for organic spices and even non-GMO spices, only 95% of the ingredients need to be certified organic or non-GMO and so the other 5% can be non organic or GMO leaving room for the nasties to creep in yet the product is still considered an organic product or non-GMO as the case may be.

This is why none of our products contain any of the following ingredients commonly found in other organic and non-organic spices within Canada:

  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Citric acid (usually synthetically made possibly from GMO sources)
  • Maltodextrin (usually synthetically made possibly from GMO sources)
  • Silicon Dioxide (usually synthetically made possibly from GMO sources)
  • “Flavourings” or “Extracts”
  • Hydrogenated Oils
  • Ethoxyquin

We strongly believe organic is not enough. It is not organic that makes spices taste better or healthier for you but the quality and the factors such as grades, volatile oil content, harvesting methods, harvest year, journey time that all contribute to what should be the best quality possible. This is why the Spice Sanctuary exists and why we strongly believe organic is not enough and not all spices are created equal.

No wonder our products are regularly featured on Canadian television and used by Executive Chefs!
