  2. Aroma: The unique aroma of dried ginger can be attributed to its volatile oils, which also possess medicinal properties.
  3. Chemical constituents: Ginger contains several bioactive compounds, such as gingerols, shogaols, and zingerone, that contribute to its therapeutic effects.

  2. Anti-inflammatory: Ginger's anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce inflammation and manage conditions like arthritis, muscle pain, and soreness.
  3. Immune support: Ginger may boost the immune system due to its antimicrobial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties.
  4. Cardiovascular health: Ginger may help lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol levels, and prevent blood clotting, thereby supporting heart health.
  5. Blood sugar regulation: Some studies suggest that ginger can improve blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity in people with diabetes.


How to use dried ginger pieces:


  1. Culinary uses: Add dried ginger pieces to dishes like curries, stews, soups, stir-fries, and marinades for a spicy, warming flavor. You can also use it in baking recipes like gingerbread cookies, cakes, and breads.
