It is not only the enchanting melody of the word, or the incredibly versatile natural spice that makes ginger special worldwide. The English language uses “to ginger something up” to express making something more lively or exciting. In Japan, ginger is pickled in vinegar and used to spice up sushi dishes. All over the world, candied ginger enjoys more and more popularity. There is ginger tea, ginger syrup or the popular ginger ale.
In kitchens around the world, it is appreciated for its pungency and refines soups and seafood, as well as poultry, lamb or fish. Ginger harvested young is mild, while the root harvested later tastes spicier.
But ginger is much more than just an ordinary cooking spice. It is known to be one of the healthiest spices on the planet. In many countries, the root’s benefits have been recognized and used for more than 3.000 years. Also in Europe, ginger is a popular home remedy.
The ginger plant grows in tropical and subtropical areas and is mainly produced in India. The most commonly used ginger is Zingiber officinale. Only the main subterranean shoots of this pretty plant, the so-called rhizomes, are used. They contain oleoresin, a thick balm
consisting of essential oils and the pungent constituents gingerols and shogaols. These ginger properties are said to have an antioxidant and stimulating effect on our production of gastric fluid, saliva and bile as well as on our intestinal function.
In order to optimally preserve the natural efficacy of the plants, we use traditional manufacturing methods. The EU Organic logo guarantees that our plants are sustainably and organically cultivated.
