Wild Turmeric Direct From Yakushima Farmers

Wild Turmeric Powder

YAKUSHIMA Wild Turmeric Powder, Curcuma aromatica 100%

Sustainably grown Curcuma aromatica rhizomes in powder form.



"Wild Turmeric" is the most common name for this unique plant, but ours is not foraged from the wild.

C. aromatica, also known as "yellow zedoary", can be found in the wild in south Asia, thousands of kilometers from our farms in Yakushima, Japan. Here the plant cannot compete in the wild forest habitat, so it must be carefully proteced by determined farmers.


Wild Turmeric has curcumin naturally present, but it is less concentrated than in normal turmeric.
The plants look quite similar and it takes a careful eye to distingush them aboveground.
But break the soil and pull-up the plant and immediately we know which plant we are dealing with: healthy plants will offer the fragrance of their rhizomes with the smallest nick. Snap-off a finger (rhizome of turmeric and other cucrucmas) and reveal a vibrant lemon-yellow color, where normal turmeric would be orange.


The chemical composition of C. aromatica is distinct from its cousins, containing a unique mix of minerals and essential oils.


As with all of our crops, we never use herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or chemical fertilizers on our treasued Wild Turmeric.
