"Diaspora Co.’s Pragati turmeric is so fragrant it’s almost intoxicating. The Aranya pepper smells like ripe fruit and tastes like smoke, chocolate, and mandarins."
"But Diaspora Co. is more than an Asian pantry marketplace: With tons of education and information about ingredient provenance, its website is also a platform for educating consumers and encouraging creativity in the kitchen."

Farmer Spotlight

Mr. Prabhu Kasaraneni & his PRAGATI TURMERIC

While Mr. Prabhu Kasaraneni’s family has been farming for three generations, he is a self-taught organic farmer who began growing heirloom Pragati Turmeric in 2015 with assistance from the Indian Institute of Spice Research. Today, it is still one of our most well-loved spices, and for good reason — it's the most delicious turmeric we have ever tried!
