Ginger represents a popular spice which belongs to the family Zingiberaceae. It originated in South-East Asia and is today used all around the world, particularly in Asian countries. The active constituent of ginger is gingerol, a relative of capsaicin while some of the other ingredients include paradols, shogaol, raw fibre, amino acids, ash, protein, minerals, phytosterols, nicotinic acid and vitamin A.
Although ginger is widely used as a spice and condiment to add flavour to food, its rhizome has also long been used in traditional herbal medicine among many cultures. It helps to combat a number of ailments which include degenerative disorders (rheumatism and arthritis), digestive health (constipation, indigestion and ulcer), cardiovascular disorders (hypertension and atherosclerosis), vomiting, diabetes mellitus and cancer. It also has antimicrobial potential, which help in treating infectious diseases, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties for controlling the process of aging.
On account of its peppery and sweet flavour with a spicy aroma, the global ginger market has witnessed a healthy growth in recent years. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the market reached a volume of 2.32 Million Tons in 2016 and is further expected to reach 3.04 Million Tons by 2021. Some of the other factors such as population growth, increasing disposable incomes, rising health consciousness and hectic lifestyles have also contributed to the market growth.
