Ginger root has been used for centuries around the world in preparing cuisine. Ginger root has been mentioned in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medical literature. Southeast Asian countries are the largest producers of the root. Ginger’s name originates from the ancient Sanskrit word, srngaveram, translating to “horn root.” The root itself originates from the root of the Zingiber officinale plant, a tropical plant that has green-purple flowers and a fragrant stem known as a rhizome. Indians and Chinese are thought to have used it as a tonic for thousands of years to treat illness.
Ginger root is a member of the family of roots consisting of turmeric and cardamom. There are over 1300 different species of ginger root plants. Its strong aroma and taste are due to ketones called gingerols that are a primary component of the root. It is high in vitamin C, vitamin B6, micronutrients like magnesium, potassium, copper, and manganese.
