Lakadong Turmeric is a special variety of turmeric from a place called Lakadong’, in Jaintia Hills, Meghalaya. It is known for its medicinal qualities, as he Curcumin content in it is between 7 to 12.32% (last tested in 2020), which is one of the highest, as against 2 to 3% in most varieties of turmeric.

Long before Lakadong turmeric got its name, the golden-yellow spice used to be known as ‘Shangpung Turmeric’. Shangpung was among the most developed village and was a market hub. Farmers from different villages come to this market to sell their produces and they brought their turmeric along to be grounded, packed and dispatched there. Hence, the name ‘Shangpung Turmeric’. Then eventually, farmers of Lakadong village realized the importance of the spice and started growing them in their gardens and everywhere in the village making it popularly known as Lakadong Chyrmit (turmeric).
