Organic Ginger Ground 30g
Country of Origin: China/India/Nigeria
Zest is often confined to describing lemons, but we think that’s just plain wrong. And, from the taste of it, it’s clear that organic ginger agrees. Noticeably zesty, organic ground ginger is so much more than mere tang. It pairs well with vegetarian and meatatarian dishes. The aromatic spice has taken zest to heart, and there’s no turning back now. So, when your vegetarian friend wants you to try their way of cooking, you can add some organic ginger to your pulled pork and tell them you gave it a shot. (For our vegetarian friends: please feel free to swap in “meatatarian” and “autumn squash stew” in the previous sentence.) Organic ginger coles are also a key component of many traditional Middle Eastern dishes, including couscous and tagines. That makes organic ginger an excellent choice for when you want to travel the world from the comfort of your kitchen table. (And, did we mention the significant health benefits of ground ginger?) Finally, ground organic ginger is 8x more potent than its fresh counterpart - and has a significantly longer shelf life. Sounds like an, ahem, zesty choice to me!
How to use organic ginger?
Organic ginger can be cooked, consumed, and applied topically. Like most spices, ginger’s uses are dependant on the form it comes in.
Organic ginger is reminiscent of holidays at grandma’s house, trips to China, and that hangover brew your buddy made once with raw eggs. (Hey, don’t blame us - we didn’t make you drink it!) Whatever your experience, organic ginger is a versatile (and delicious) spice. It pairs beautifully with pears - and kids go bananas for ginger banana sandwiches! For more serious cooking, use organic ginger in traditional Indian masala chai.
Organic ginger can complement a variety of spices. It works to enhance the other spice’s flavour and adds balance to the current flavour profile of the dish. Some of the best complimentary spices include:
Organic Ginger Health Benefits
Organic ginger has been renowned across time and space for its medicinal properties. (Unfortunately, we had to rely on historical records for this - someone stole our little blue box!) While its origins as a healing super-spice are unknown, both Chinese and Indian healers are thought to have used ginger as a form of medicine for more than 5,000 years. Since then, it’s been widely traded across the globe, gracing the tables of Roman Emperors and hungry college kids alike. Check out some of the health benefits of ground ginger:
- Organic ginger is high in gingerol - a substance linked to powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which is known to help with osteoarthritis.
- It’s a well-established traditional alternative remedy for nausea (including morning sickness, chronic indigestion, and Sunday mornings...)
- For those that actually go to the gym, organic ginger also seems to be effective against exercise-induced muscle pain.
- For those that prefer to go to Hungry Jack’s, organic ginger may lower cholesterol.
The buck doesn’t stop there! Organic ginger is still being investigated for its effectiveness in many other areas of medicine. Many exciting new findings have indicated that ginger’s medicinal properties are extensive.
While organic ginger’s health benefits have been clearly established, it should be noted that it isn’t a replacement for modern medicine. Please make sure to seek professional medical advice from a qualified doctor or other healthcare professionals when looking to treat specific medical ailments.
