Zingiber Officinale

The pungent taste of ginger is due to nonvolatile phenylpropanoid-derived companents, particularly gingerols and shogaols, which form from gingerols when ginger is dried or cooked.

Mature ginger roots are fibrous and nearly dry. Powdered dry ginger root is typically used as a flavoring for recipes such as ginger ale and ginger beer.

Ginger Root has been used in beers for a long time. Most known to be found in holiday ales, but ginger is finding its way into many different styles. Many farmhouse style beers are using ginger to give the beer some more complexity.

Ginger works well with sweet or bitter orange peel, cinnamon, nutmeg, and coriander.

For a subtle ginger flavor, us 1/4 - 1 oz. in the boil or secondary fermenter.
For a pronounced ginger character, use 2 - 4 oz.

Parts Used
Dried, peeled rhizome, chopped. Chopped ginger is used to treat "wetter" conditions, such as treating or preventing infections, while powdered ginger is used to treat "drier" conditions, such as allergy, asthma.

Typical Preparations
Teas, tinctures, encapsulations, in herbal formulas, and in cooking. First-time users of ginger tend to use too much. To make ginger tea, simmer 3/4 teaspoon (0.5 to 1.0 grams) of chopped ginger in 1 cup of hot water for five minutes in a closed teapot. To treat asthma, use an alcohol-based tincture rather than a tea.

Although there are warnings in both Traditional Chinese Medicine and some medical texts about using ginger during pregnancy, ginger used in moderation, that is 3/4 teaspoon up to three times a day, poses no risk to mother's or baby's health. Studies in the late 1990's found that eating as much as 2 to 3 tablespoons of raw ginger or 5 to 8 tablespoons of dried ginger daily will not stimulate uterine contraction. Excessive use may cause gastro-intestinal upset.
