    Dry ginger powder

    Dried ginger is nothing but fresh ginger which undergoes a drying process before being used. The fresh rhizomes are soaked in water overnight after which the outer peel is carefully removed using a knife or a peeler. They are washed again and then sun dried on mats or barbecues for around a week. During this period, they are turned periodically. The end result is a pale white dried ginger. Many a times, dried ginger is bleached with calcium carbonate to get a whitish covering on ginger. However, this is not required and can be avoided. This ginger is then powdered in a mixer to obtain dried ginger powder. It's a fine off whitish powder which has a strong aroma and slightly pungent flavour. Dried Ginger powder is an effective cure for indigestion, sore throat, cold and cough. It is used to treat nausea. Ginger's therapeutic properties help stimulate blood circulation, cleanse the bowels and kidneys, remove toxins from the body and nourish the skin. It is used in the treatment of asthma and other respiratory problems.
