What makes ginger hot?
Ginger is on everyone's lips - and it also burns quite a bit there. But what actually makes ginger hot? And what else does the bulb have to offer? We'll tell you!
But first to the tuber itself. The ginger we find in the supermarket is the root of a plant that can grow up to 1.5 meters tall. This plant is native to tropical regions. That's why ginger can be found in many dishes, especially in Asian cuisine. The root is used as a food, spice, medicinal plant and has even conquered a place in the beverage industry: as ginger ale, ginger beer, or as a ginger shot or juice .
