The Golden Milk has become a Fad in the West
Consuming natural ingredients is the best way to maintain optimal health. The health benefits of turmeric have led to the rapid growth of the turmeric market. Golden milk has been gaining popularity in Western culture since 2016, and the world has once again become obsessed with it. Little wonder why we now have various turmeric golden milk recipes.
Golden milk is warm milk blended with coconut oil and turmeric powder. It is an immunity-boosting drink that possesses antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Golden milk was a trend in Hollywood and has become a global health beverage lately. Many countries have started selling golden milk as well as other drinks that contain this superfood, turmeric. This can be attributed to the numerous health benefits of golden milk. According to the British daily newspaper, The Guardian, golden milk is 2016’s drink of choice. In addition, Google’s 2016 Food Trend Reports indicate that the search volume for the word “turmeric” grew by 300% within five years.
Foods that could boost the immune system became increasingly popular during the COVID-19 pandemic. Turmeric lattes, turmeric sparkling water, turmeric quick drinks, turmeric pills, and other products are all on the market. According to Grand View Research, the worldwide curcumin market will be worth over $150 million by 2027, with a CAGR of 12.7 percent.
Improving Curcumin Bioavailability is the Key to Grazing Business Opportunities
Besides the health benefits of golden milk, turmeric is another essential natural ingredient. Turmeric possesses a wide range of health benefits, and the curcumin within turmeric is a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. However, curcumin has limited bioavailability because of its low solubility in water.
The absorption of water-soluble nutrients occurs by diffusion through the wall of the small intestine into the capillaries of the circulatory system. Since curcumin can easily be assembled into large molecules, it has low bioavailability, hence poor absorption. Therefore, it could only be used in a few dosage forms. Many manufacturers have been looking for ways to improve the bioavailability of curcumin.
The most common methods of improving its bioavailability are adding piperine, mixing with oil, and increasing the concentration of curcumin. However, these methods have disadvantages. For instance, the burning taste of piperine will affect the product’s flavor. Oil does not dissolve in water, so curcumin could not be used in liquid dosage forms. Adding too much curcumin makes the supplement too simple, which does not reflect the diversity of nutrients.
To overcome the aforementioned problems, we teamed up with the Medical and Pharmaceutical Industry Technology and Development Center to work on increasing curcumin bioavailability without reducing its efficacy. Our submicronization technology, Nu-Fusion™, was used to decrease the size of curcumin. That way, we overcame the curcumin limitations and were able to offer our clients the more efficient, easily-absorbed turmeric supplement in various dosage forms.
