We love the aroma of freshly juiced root ginger! Which is a good job because that amazingly zingy scent absolutely fills our little factory when we’re making our fabulous Feisty Rollercoastery Ginger Ice Cream Alternative. Every batch starts with 110kg of organic root ginger, which we pulp to create no less than 70 litres of pure, powerfully pungent ginger juice; the freshly squeezed secret that gives Feisty Rollercoastery Ginger its enlivening kick!
Root ginger isn’t just a fantastically flavoursome but has long been credited with powerful medicinal qualities, including alleviating the symptoms of gastrointestinal distress and reducing nausea and vomiting, especially in pregnancy. Ginger contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols which, as well as being responsible for the root’s distinctive flavour, are believed to help reduce the pain of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. What’s more ginger has proven antioxidant effects, boosts the immune system and has even been used to fight cancer. A spicy superfood? We think so!
And we’re not the only ones with a passion for Ginger, lots of our Instagram followers are pretty smitten with it too. Here are just a couple of posts which have caught our eye recently:
