Ginger

From teas to exotic dishes, the sharp, spicy taste of ginger is enough to bring a comforting warmth to the body. We root for ginger because it’s among the healthiest (and most delicious) roots on the planet. Also known as Shoga, this flowering plant originated in Southeast Asia and has multiple variations that are often added to foods and even cosmetics. In the Middle East, ginger root is used for its medicinal properties.
