Origin: A flowering plant originating in the tropical rain forests of India, also grown in parts of South America and Africa today. We use the highest quality organic ginger root in our SWEET GINGER BROWNE simple syrups and blended flavors. Our ginger comes to us from the Rain Forest of South America.
Description: Ginger spice is derived from the root of the plant. It has a spicy, sweet aroma and can be used fresh, pickled or in powdered form. Every batch of Sweet Ginger Browne Mixer & Elixir is made with fresh, natural, organic ginger root.
Uses: Used as a spicy, fragrant cooking spice in vegetarian and meat-based dishes, or steeped in boiling water to make a tea. Enjoyed in the Caribbean to enhance the flavor of a variety of dishes, or in drinks such as sorrel. Ginger can be made into a soda (ginger ale) and used as a “drink mixer to change or add to the flavor of spirit-based drinks.”
Benefits*: The active component, gingerol, is responsible for the antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties of ginger. Ginger aides in digestion, reduces nausea, improves muscle pain and soreness, and has been shown to lower fasting blood sugar, A1C, blood pressure, and reduces risk factors for heart disease by decreasing oxidized lipids in the blood.
