Bring on the zing.

Ground Ginger
(zingiber officinale)
Ginger, Ground

Ginger was one of the first Oriental spices used in the Western world when it was brought from the East by the fabled spice caravans.

Depending on where it’s grown and when it’s harvested, the flavor of ginger can range from spicy warmth to biting heat.

Our Spice Islands® ginger is sourced from China and has a pungent, lemony flavor that matches well with everything from couscous to cookies.

Fun Fact: Early spice caravans only carried dried ginger because fresh ginger wouldn’t survive the caravan’s long journey. So dried ginger became the favorite form in the Middle East and Europe.

Our Ground Ginger is only ginger. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
