Ginger Root Box
Zingiber officinale, commonly known as Ginger is a flowering plant that originated in Southeast Asia. This delicious rhizome is among the healthiest and most flavorful spices on planet Earth.
Ginger belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and it is closely related to turmeric, cardamom, and galangal.
The rhizome is the stem which grows underground, and it is this part of the plant which is used as a spice all around the world. Although ginger is not technically a root, it is most commonly referred to as Ginger root, rather than it’s true botanical classification.
Ginger is used fresh, as a potent powder, or as an oil, juice or extract.
Fresh Ginger has some incredible health benefits and nutritional properties which should not be underestimated.
Ginger has been embraced throughout history, as an integral part of Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine. Newly studied natural compounds present in Ginger, such as Gingerol, lend credibility to ancient societies, which handed down the appreciation and cultivation of Ginger from generation to generation. Many of those values are still embraced in traditional and alternative medicine.
Gingerol is a bioactive compound which occurs naturally in Ginger; it is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. While the list of nutrition and health benefits are virtually endless, the flavor of fresh Ginger alone is sufficient for many people.
Although Ginger has a remarkable history, Ginger is more relevant now than ever. So what does this mean for the future of Ginger and what it has to offer?
While we don’t know for certain, we are honored to contribute the best quality fresh Ginger to those who appreciate and respect how it is grown, how it tastes, and what it has to offer to our minds and bodies.
