TO KNOW MORE
Ginger, Zingiber officinale, belongs to the Zingiberaceae family and is grown in warm and humid tropical climates throughout South and Southeast Asia, China, Nigeria and Jamaica. The use of ginger in Europe counts on an ancient history and dates back to Greek and Roman times. It is mentioned in Indian Ayurveda and other religious scriptures dating back to 2,000 B.C., where it was recognised as an aid in digestion. The scientific term for Ginger comes from the Greek word 'zingiberis', which derives from the Sanskrit word 'shringavera', meaning 'deer-antler-shaped'. On the other hand, 'officinale' refers to the wellness properties of rhizomes.
The rhizome is the most widely used part of ginger and is commercially available, either peeled or unpeeled. It is reddish in colour with a very characteristic aromatic, spicy smell and taste.
