What Is Ginger?

Ginger comes from a plant - Zingiber officinale - and the consumable part is actually a rhizome, not a root. We juice, grate, chop, and chew the Ginger rhizome. Shoots and stems can grow off of the Ginger rhizome. Technically speaking, shoots and stems can't grow off of roots, which is why Ginger is a rhizome.

Raw ginger is composed of 79% water, 18% carbohydrates, 2% protein, and 1% fat.

The oils found in the fat are what ginger its health benefits. The oils consist primarily of zingerone, shogaols and gingerols. These are bio-active polyphenols which play a helpful role in many bodily processes.

Ginger Time is very thankful for mother nature's gift of Ginger, and all the polyphenols in it!
