Ginger Powder is made by drying out peeled fresh ginger root, then grinding it to a fine powder. Ginger Powder has a warm, spicy bite, is a little bit sweet, and is not as strongly flavored as fresh ginger. It is commonly used in baking, savory spice rubs, and marinades. Ginger is popular for its anti-inflammatory properties, and has long been used as treatments for nausea and digestive complaints. It is often used in teas and drinks as well.
