Product Spotlight: Ginger

Tuesday, 20 June 2017  |  Admin

Ginger, the strange looking cactus shaped spice, is one of the healthiest foods on the planet. I love its wonderfully fiery, pungent and sweet flavour. 

Ginger is part of the Zingiberaceae botanical family alongside turmeric and cardamom. Like them, ginger thrives in a hot climate, so it is typically grown in India, Jamaica, Australia, and Indonesia. Ginger has long been revered as a culinary spice and medicinal herb. The rhizome (root) of the ginger plant is the edible part and can be consumed fresh, powdered, dried or in oil form.                                                                                                                       

A brief history

Ginger has been renowned for millennia in many areas throughout the world. It is mentioned in ancient Chinese, Indian and Middle Eastern writings. After the ancient Romans imported ginger from Southeast Asia almost two thousand years ago, its popularity grew in Europe but remained centered in the Mediterranean region until the Middle Ages. Its use then spread throughout other countries. Henry Vlll even suggested it as a remedy for the plague.  

                   

Gingerol

Gingerol is the main bioactive compound within ginger and is responsible for many of its health benefits. It has been studied for its anti-cancer properties. See more here. 

Health benefits

Ginger soothes the digestive system. It is a well known as a remedy for nausea, indigestion and is used to aid wind, colic, irritable bowel, chills, cold, flu, poor circulation, menstrual cramps, and gastrointestinal problems. Ginger has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-parasitic properties. Studies have shown that its anti-inflammatory qualities can help with osteoarthritis. See the study here

I have used the organic turmeric powder for a couple of years now to make the golden paste but normally buy from amazon, decided to try the company direct, it is a really good product as well as the organic ground black pepper, really keeps the arthritis at bay, recently ran out so bought turmeric tablets with black pepper to tide us over, within a week my husband and I could feel the swelling and aches coming back, thank you stay fresh for a super product

Every year at about this time I start putting ginger powder into my breakfast smoothie as it's a good antihistamine amongst other health benefits.
I've tried many brands and now I have concluded that it's worth spending a little extra on this one to ensure getting the superior quality that stay fresh organics provide with this powder.
