Starbucks in the United Kingdom will begin selling a Latte with Turmeric. The warm drink is made by steaming milk dusted with turmeric powder, and then pouring the milk over espresso, with the spice tinting the drink to a soft orange color.
Turmeric is currently considered a super food and the clean eating trend of the food world has made the spice a sought-after addition to health-minded diners. However, it should be noted that the spice is far from being newly discovered; turmeric has been used as an ingredient in food and in religious ceremonies in Southeast Asia for at least 4,000 years. Milk mixed with turmeric is nicknamed Golden Milk, though we’re not sure this latte quite falls under that category.
