Application

Ginger or Zingiber officinale is a herbaceous perennial plant from the family of Zingiberaceae that is cultivated for its edible underground stem. The name of Zingiber is from the Greek zingiberis which comes from the Sanskrit name of the spice, singabera. Ginger is native to southeastern Asia and for ancient times it has been known as spice and medicine. Ginger has a brown, corky outer layer with pale-yellow scented center. This spice has a slightly biting taste and is used in dried or ground forms. The use of this spice is for flavour breads, sauces, curry dishes, confections, pickles, and beverages such as ginger ale.

The dried ginger has an irregular shape, with various colours from dark yellow through light brown to pale buff.
