WHAT DOES JAMU TASTE LIKE?
There is a comforting aromatic flavour from the fresh turmeric, a sweet/sour tang from tamarind, a peppery and spicy hit from the pepper & ginger - subtle hints of cinnamon & lemongrass and a refreshing citrus burst from lemons. We add a small amount of honey to bring a balance to the strong flavours but it is not at all sweet - we constantly have to tell consumers that it is not a juice.

Is Jamu a Juice?
It is not a Juice!
When making Jamu we use a cooking process to release the Curcumin (the active compound within turmeric) and make it more easily absorbed.
Fresh root turmeric plays very hard to get when it comes to nourishing us so it is good to know a few tricks..
Cooking is one of the best tricks. Fresh turmeric eaten raw makes actually makes our system work harder.
Why do you add black pepper?
Well, the truth is there is not much point having turmeric without it! Piperine, the chemical compound found in pepper lends a hand in getting curcumin through the intestinal wall and in to the bloodstream. Essentially, pepper helps us to absorb the beneficial Curcumin within turmeric.
