The Growing Popularity of Turmeric


Turmeric is a bright yellow spice obtained from the roots of a plant in the Ginger family. Native to South Asia, it has a long history of use in cooking, cosmetics, fabric dyeing and cultural and traditional healings. In recent decades, turmeric has been adopted globally for the impressive list of health benefits this superfood boasts. Turmeric has both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and studies have shown the potential benefits this spice has, such as, reducing skin conditions and preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

Turmeric has become a popular ingredient and can now be found in most supermarket products, including cereal, immunity shots and drinks. Many popular companies like Cha Cha Matcha, Pressed Juicery and Trader Joe’s offer Turmeric products like Ginger Turmeric Matcha Latte, Vitality Turmeric Shot, and Turmeric Ginger Coconut Beverage, respectively.  In 2019, the Turmeric market revenue was 930 Million USD and is continuing to show an upward trend. It is expected to reach 1405 Million USD in 2025. 

With the growing demand and desire for Turmeric, Mochidoki has created its very own Turmeric Hot Honey flavor. This delicious mochi is made with Turmeric ice cream, which highlights the peppery aroma from the spice. It is paired with the warm sweetness of honey and speckled with a touch of red pepper to give the perfect balance of sweet and spicy!
