Sure, it may be pretty spicy, sometimes painful and kind of weird-looking... but we’re the first to admit that we’re totally hot for Peruvian Ginger at MOJU. But WHY?
WHAT IS GINGER?
Well, if we’re going for formal introductions, say hello to Zingiber Officinale [zing-ee-ber, oh-fiss-ih-NAH-lee.] A popular flowering plant of the Zingiberaceae, it’s the proper title of this humble rhizome (a type of root) that’s been used as an Ayurvedic herb and tasty ingredient for thousands of years. Growing usually around 1.5-2.5cm thick underground and sprouting up to 100cm in height, its long, narrow leaves and conical flowers give it a bit more swag than the weird knobbly bit we know and love.
At MOJU we use organic yellow ginger from Peru in all our shots. After doing some serious digging, we have found it to be a far superior ginger root compared to the yellow, conventional ginger you can find used in most products.
HOW CAN YOU BE SO SURE?
Science, my friend. We performed (what we believe to be) the first-of-its-kind research where we tested Chinese ginger vs Peruvian yellow ginger roots. We analysed the roots for gingerols and shogaols which are the active compounds found in ginger that provide the health benefits. And frankly, the results speak for themselves…
- 6-gingerol = over 2.5x more in Peruvian
- 10-gingerol = 2x more in Peruvian
- Gingerols and Shogaols Total = 2.5x more in Peruvian
