THE FOOD SEEN 030519: Diaspora Co. turmeric with Sana Javeri Kadri

On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, Sana Javeri Kadri brings a whole new “gold standard” to culinary root of a flowering plant in the ginger family: turmeric. It’s color, sometimes referred to as curcuma, brings with it the promise of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. But what Diaspora Co. is trying to do is disrupt and decolonize an outdated commodity spice trading system, bringing equity to Indian farmers who make fresh, sustainable, single-origin curcumin bioavailable. That’s the social justice of a queer, woman-of-color owned spice company, which may be even more potent that the power of turmeric.
