Ginger has been used in India and China for thousands of years to treat health conditions. It has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial properties that can help you stay healthy. Finding ideas on how to incorporate ginger into your diet will provide numerous health benefits.

Our ginger disks are made in Australia, and sourced from a long-established Chinese supplier. It is the dried-down natural ginger root, then dusted in rice flour to keep the individual pieces separated. Unlike crystallised ginger, it does not have a strong sugar hit in your mouth and has a much more intense flavour.
If you’re a fan of ginger and its intense flavour, this is a delightful snack. But if you are wondering if there are other ways to use this product, below are a few ideas to include it in your diet.
- Dice it up and add it to batters for baking. It pairs well in all sorts of biscuit flavours, not only in ginger snaps or gingerbread but also in shortbread, chocolate, or peanut butter cookies.
- You can also incorporate it into bread and cake mixtures. Try it in orange cake or banana bread. Or add that bit of extra spice to your fruit cakes.
- It works equally well in savory dishes. Dice it and add to a warm pan with butter, lemon juice, and sliced green onions. Heat it until melted and spoon over chicken or fish.
- Roughly chop and add it into stir fry dishes.
- Dice and add to fruit salads. It adds a spicy and zesty hit of flavour.
- For the ultimate winter-warming dessert, dice it and add to your apple pie fillings.
- You can also chop it and add it to your cup of tea or herbal infusions. It also works as a cocktail garnish.
- Dip into melted chocolate fondue or add to grazing platters.
- Get creative! Ginger pairs well with savoury dishes including seafood, citrus, pumpkin, and pork.
- Just eat it as is. Fresh ginger is quite spicy to eat and ground ginger can be quite pungent. Our Dried Ginger is made to be a delicious snack of its own!
