The Goodness of Ginger

The Goodness of Ginger

Ginger is a common culinary ingredient with extraordinary medicinal properties. The thick, light brown shoots we see in grocery stores come from the rhizomes, or underground stems, of the tropical flowering plant Zingiber officinale. Not only does this root pack a flavorful punch, but it also provides rich health benefits.

      1. Supports the immune system

      2. Freshens breath and whitens teeth

      3. Creates a calm stomach

      4. Soothes sore muscles and aids in arthritis relief

      5. May lower blood sugar and cholesterol


Ginger has a citrus-like taste and can be ground into tablets, brewed into beverages, or incorporated into sweet desserts and savory dishes. Here are our top CHEF iQ recipe picks using this special spice. Download the CHEF iQ App to view the full Guided Cooking videos!
