Travels to Northern West Africa, Central Asia and other locations in SE Asia have uncovered similar approaches to food preparation.
In Indonesia, the subtle craft of blending these ingredients is known as DJAMOE. Originating in Java centuries ago, they are used for healing and rejuvenating.
For years, we’ve grown and gathered many of these ingredients, enabling our customers to reconnect with their healing and nourishing virtues.
