Benefits of Ginger

Ginger has been used for centuries among many different cultures for its medicinal properties. The root  (rhizome) of the ginger plant can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried as a spice, liquidated as an oil or as juice. Ginger is part of the Zingiberaceae family, alongside Cardamom and Turmeric, and is commonly produced in India, Jamaica, Fiji, Indonesia and Australia.

Using fresh ginger is an easy way to flavour foods and drinks without adding unnecessary sodium. It is commonly used in Asian, Indian, Jamaican and Southern Pacific cuisine.
