Ginger

 

Country of origin: India

Extraction method: steam distillation

Ginger is a rain forest monocot about a metre high, with long, narrow leaves and spicate flowers. It has been grown in India and China since Antiquity. Seeds have never been found, ginger propagates through buddings from its knotty rhizome. Today India, Malaya, Taiwan and Fiji are the main exporters.

The fresh ginger rhizome is a versatile ingredient of the far eastern cuisine, and is now commonly used in most of the world. Its flavour is lemony-balsamic and its taste is medium hot.

The lemony character of fresh ginger is due to citral. Major components of the essential oil are the sesquiterpenes beta-sesquiphellandrene and zingiberene. The 'sharp' constituents, causing the burning sensation on the mucous membranes, are substituted phenols (gingerols/shogaols).

In the ginger family we also find cardamom, Elettaria cardamomum, galanga, Alpinia galanga, and turmeric, Curcuma longa.
