What Is Organic Ginger Extract Used For? Ginger is a flowering plant identified by its narrow green leaves. It blooms yellow flowers annually. The plant is originally from the tropics and rain forests of South Asia, though it no longer grows wild. The root (ginger root) is what the plant is most widely known and used for.

As a food product, ginger is used very widely in cuisine in its many forms – fresh, dried, pickled, preserved, powdered, and others. Many South Asian countries incorporate it into their national dishes – among them India, Vietnam, Japan, Myanmar, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines – but it can also be found in dishes from the Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern regions. It is known for its fragrance and hot, spicy flavor, but it makes a nice treat when candied (crystallized/candied ginger), and it can also be incorporated into beverages and sweet baked dishes.

It is also widely used in folk medicine and herbalism for its many benefits.

What Is the Definition of Organic Ginger Extract? Organic Ginger Extract (or Ginger Root Extract) is a concentrate made from ginger that has been harvested at least 9 months, as its potency increases the longer it ages.
