Ginger, Zingiber officinale, Ginger is worthy of being classified as one of the most effective “superfoods.” There are many species and varieties of ginger and Thai Freeze Dry focuses on a rare ancient indigenous ginger found in the forests of Northern Thailand.
The traditional drying method still used today is to boil or steam the ginger rhizome (root) to soften it in preparation for drying.
