Ginger powder, how it's made

Peruvian ginger is derived from ginger plant roots and is grown in the Chanchamayo, Junin region of Peru, situated between the Amazon jungle and the Andean mountain range. Organic farming is used by the majority of the Peruvian farmers to cultivate ginger, making organic Peruvian ginger powder a healthier and more environmentally friendly option than conventionally cultivated ginger. 

Freshly milled Peruvian Ginger PowderPeruvian ginger powder is made by harvesting fresh ginger roots. The roots are then washed thoroughly and peeled to remove the outer skin. Once the ginger has been peeled, it is sliced thinly and dried in the sun or a dehydrator until it is completely dry and brittle. 

Once the ginger has been dried, it is ground into a fine powder using a grinder or mill. The resulting powder is then sifted to remove any impurities. The ginger powder is packed into 20kg 3-ply plastic lined Kraft paper bags and stored whilst waiting to be exported to one of the corners of the world.

Peruvian Ginger Powder versus Ginger powder from Asia

Peruvian ginger powder and ginger powder from Asia are both widely used spices in cuisines worldwide. While both types of ginger powders share some similarities, they also have some key differences. Peruvian ginger has a more subtle and earthy flavor, with slightly sweet and citrusy notes, while ginger from Asia is more pungent and spicy. Additionally, Peruvian ginger is grown using organic farming methods, while ginger from Asia may be grown using conventional farming methods, which may involve the use of pesticides and other chemicals.
