Consumers are craving more complex flavors and new experiences. As a golden-yellow spice native to India, turmeric meets this demand. The number of turmeric-infused products is rapidly increasing across all segments of the natural foods industry, most notably beverages.

Organic Certified & Non-GMO

PurTurmeric is organic and non-GMO yet it utilizes a different method of extraction than a typical press or juice concentrate. The net result is very similar, but the difference is in the AFS extraction technology which more accurately isolates the organic active components, called curcuminoids, and delivers this excellent flavor and function in a manner that is effortless for formulators.

Highly Water Soluble

PurTurmeric is perfect for beverages, stick-packs, or effervescent tablets. Unlike concentrates or juices, PurTurmeric is highly water soluble and will not contain undesired textures, particulates, or inevitable settling. While flavor and health benefits are key targets, a typical turmeric extract would include sedimentation due to its insoluble particulates. Without losing flavor or function, AFS has designed PurTurmeric to be a proprietary ingredient that is clean in solution.

Shelf Stable

PurTurmeric is a shelf-stable, dry ingredient which holds a two-year shelf life. Comparatively, juices and concentrates are perishable and often have a 14-day shelf life. The cost of shipping frozen or refrigerated material is typically more than 12 times that of a dry ingredient, and storage space is limited.

Save Time & Cost in Formulation

PurTurmeric is standardized, meaning that it is consistent when formulating, making turmeric projects easier to scale. Extracts save hours of processing raw turmeric and minimizes material waste disposal. With PurTurmeric, manufacturers can provide consistent product flavor and nutritional benefits from turmeric in every production run.
