Ginger [1] or ginger root is the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, consumed as a delicacy, medicine, or spice. It lends its name to its genus and family. Other notable members of this plant family are turmeric, cardamom, and galangal.

Ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice, young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes. They can be grated to make ginger tea by steeping in boiling water. Ginger can also be made into candy, or ginger wine which has been made commercially since 1740.

Mature ginger rhizomes are fibrous and nearly dry. The juice from old ginger roots is extremely potent. Ginger also acts as a useful food preservative [2] [3] due to its antioxidant properties which are also of much value to the human body.
