The Turmeric Co. claims five accolades at UK’s prestigious Nourish Awards
Functional nutrition company, The Turmeric Co. has won five prestigious awards at this year’s Nourish Awards for its Raw Turmeric Original shot, Raw Turmeric Vitamin C & D3 shot and its Raw Turmeric & Beetroot shot.
The Turmeric Co., based in Cambridgeshire, was announced as a winner at the 2022 Nourish Awards, the leading health food awards in the UK.
The Nourish Awards celebrated its fifth successful award season and announced the 2022 winners on Thursday, 22nd September at the Caledonian Club in Belgravia during a vibrant black-tie presentation and networking reception. The event compère was chef, nutritionist and author Naomi Devlin, whose fun and witty presentation style has become a much-anticipated part of the Nourish Award events.
Winners are awarded in 20 categories each year including snacks, purely plants, sports nutrition, gut-friendly & fermented foods, health drinks and many more. There are also awards for Best Ethical and Best Organic products and the all-important Innovation award. In addition, Nourish Kids Awards entries are recognised in five categories for healthy options created for children.
“The best quality health shots on the market”
The Turmeric Co.’s Raw Turmeric Original shot won Gold in the Health Drinks, Shots and Soft drinks category, whilst the brand’s Raw Turmeric Vitamin C & D3 shot won Silver in the same group. Raw Turmeric Vitamin C & D3 claimed gold in the Nourish supplement awards, and Raw Turmeric Original won another gold in the Lower or Low Sugar, Sugar-free category. Finally, the Raw Turmeric & Beetroot shot was chosen by the judges in the Sports Nutrition category to receive the Gold award.
The Turmeric Co. was founded by former Wales international striker Thomas Hal Robson-Kanu, who remarked that he was “over the moon” after the company’s impressive haul at the Nourish Awards for its nutritious shots. “The Turmeric Co. has been committed to creating the best quality health shots on the market and optimising the benefits of our products. We are so proud to be chosen among a list of such incredible nominees and have enjoyed learning about their products too.”
“Unprecedented innovation in the health and free-from sectors”
The awards received more than 300 entries this year, which were judged over several weeks during the summer in a robust process, working with over 20 judges, who are all qualified and practising nutritionists, dieticians or leaders in the food, drink and supplement sectors.
“This year’s awards saw unprecedented innovation in the health and free-from sectors,” observed Diana Babics, founder of the Nourish Awards. “Convenience foods, supplements and plant-based products surprised and delighted the judges in particular. We are incredibly proud to celebrate these fantastic products and the passionate people behind them, who are leading the way to a healthier future.”

Natural and convenient nourishment
The natural and convenient shots produced by The Turmeric Co. contain zero added sugar or preservatives, come freshly chilled and can be drunk alone or incorporated into food and drink such as breakfast smoothie bowls or in tea with hot water and honey.
Unlike other turmeric shots on the market, The Turmeric Co. shots use fresh watermelon as a base, selected for its influential polyphenol and low-sugar profile, rather than low functional juices with a high sugar content such as apple and orange juice. The shots also contain flax oil and black pepper extract, which can aid the absorption of curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) by up to 2,000 per cent.
Beyond this, The Turmeric Co. has been keen to promote its sustainability ethos, as demonstrated by ethically sourced ingredients which support local agro-entrepreneurs. All four shots are bottled in fully recyclable, eco-friendly packaging – all of which can be returned with a pre-paid label to The Turmeric Co. for responsible recycling.
