The Instacart guide to ginger products
Ginger is the rhizome of the flowering plant with the same name. Although some people think that a rhizome is a root as it grows underground, it's actually the plant's main stem. The ginger plant's rhizome is pungent and aromatic and commonly used as a medicine or a food spice.
Colloquially, the rhizome of the ginger plant is referred to as ginger or ginger root. Some other plants in the genus Zingiber also utilize the term "ginger" in their name. For instance, galangal, which is similar to ginger but has a sharper and more peppery taste, is known as blue or Thai ginger. Ginger is also related to turmeric and cardamom.
The use of ginger dates back more than 5,000 years, when the Austronesian peoples first cultivated the plant. They ate fresh ginger on its own and also used it to flavor their food. The leaves of the plant were used to weave carpets. Ginger also had spiritual meaning for these people, and they used it in their rituals to ask for healing and protection.
