Alchemy has always had a strong focus on innovation.
We were the first company to manufacture chai and cofffee syrups in Australia.
Now we are proud to introduce our newest offering to the cafe market.
We started working on the Golden Turmeric Elixir in 2014 when Alchemy founder Michael Bishop purchased a sustainable farm in Northern NSW and grew turmeric, ginger, galangal and bamboo as well as several other SE Asian crops.
Fascinated by the well documented health benefits of turmeric, its brilliant colour and delicious flavour, team Alchemy started blending,testing and playing with the turmeric and other ingredients in what has been an ongoing process of evolution.
At the same time, the rest of the world has been developing an obsession with turmeric. With an abundance of reports being produced in support of many potential well-being benefits such as enhancing mood, and antioxidant properties, it really stood out as a ‘must add’ to our Alchemy range.
Our research and development has lead us to the point where we now have a delicious and beneficial product that can be best described as ‘Liquid Sunshine’.
Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric which is responsible for it’s bright colour, and a whole host of potential health benefits. Unfortunately curcumin is poorly absorbed by the body. However when paired with black pepper, the bio-availability of curcumin is increased dramatically.
The first thing you notice about the Golden Turmeric Elixir is the colour, both in the bottle and in the cup. It’s brilliant golden yellow hue is so vibrant that you almost can’t believe it is natural. The key to the goodness of turmeric comes from curcumin, which is the bioactive ingredient.
Your first sip delivers a pleasantly balanced earthy turmeric and ginger taste, with just a hint of cinnamon. As you swirl it around in your mouth, the creamy vanilla and just the right amount of raw sugar transforms the rawness into a delight, and finally the warmth of black pepper comes through, leaving your mouth singing, fresh and clean. Until your next sip, where it begins all over again.
Only six ingredients go into our Golden Turmeric Elixir, no nasties like artificial colours or flavours. Every ingredient contributes to the overall flavour, yet they are all functional and important contributors to what is our Golden Turmeric Elixir.
