Vital substances effect:

Ginger – the spice of choice for those who prefer a fiery, invigorating flavour.

The ginger root’s spiciness and flavour are provided by gingerol, an aromatic substance found in the ginger root. The spiciness (gingerol) is reputed to inhibit inflammation. Other vital substances include essential oils, vitamin C, magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, natrium and phosphorous.

Ginger contains a range of substances facilitating the digestion, fortifying the stomach and stimulating the appetite and circulation. It’s easy to see why ginger is used not just as a spice, but as a natural remedy too. It has an anti-bacterial and anti-viral effect on influenza and coughs. Ginger is also reputed to prevent vomiting, promote blood circulation and gall production, as well as increasing libido.

Ginger has a very high antioxidant capacity of 39041 µmol TE (ORAC value = Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity). The body’s defence mechanisms are strengthened by consuming foods rich in antioxidants, thereby counterbalancing excess production of free radicals. Dieticians recommend a daily ORAC intake of 5000 to 7000 [2].

Description:

Our organic Fairtrade ginger pieces are small aromatic pieces of ginger ideal for exotic and creative dishes. Organic cultivation and fair dealings mean that our ginger pieces not only contain many important substances, but represent genuinely caring welfare. Even if it is "only" a food, we think that the way that foodstuffs are handled has a decisive influence on the product's quality.

Origin and Production:

We source our dried organic ginger pieces from Sri Lanka. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE cultivation and are worked by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there. The farmers are members of one of the two Fairtrade groups, SOFA or MOPA. Thanks to cooperation with Fairtrade, the farmers can earn their living in a secure and independent fashion. The Fairtrade bonus helps them to finance projects such as clean drinking water, learning materials for schoolchildren and educational projects.

The ginger pieces are pressure treated in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests.

Organic ingredients: ginger pieces dried° Fairtrade certified and sourced from Fairtrade producers. Total 100%.
