Turmeric Golden Milk
The special ingredient in Golden Milk, also known as Golden Latte, is turmeric. It stems from the ginger family and has been an integral part of traditional oriental cuisine for thousands of years.

Next to its exotic flavours, turmeric powder has an intense orange-yellow colour which is a highly effective natural dye.
Turmeric - Indian Solid Gold with healing power
Turmeric is also called Indian Saffron or even Indian Solid Gold. In the native growing areas India and Southeast Asia, Curcuma longa is considered sacred and has been worshipped for thousands of years. In Germany, it is mostly known as spice but over the past few years, turmeric and its possible use in medicine have been investigated further. The yellow rhizome is a well-tried natural remedy in traditional Chinese medicine as well as in Ayurveda, the Indian traditional medicine. The aromatic golden powder made from turmeric plays an important role in Ayurvedic cooking and is said to have many healing effects, e.g. anti-inflammatory properties.
