Storage advice Ginger

In the store

Ginger must be kept refrigerated before sale at a temperature of 12-15°C.

At home

We recommend that consumers store ginger in a cool, dry place, such as in an unsealed plastic bag in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator. You can also store it for a longer period of time in the freezer.

Usage tips Ginger

Ginger is mainly used as a flavouring in cooking. Peel the ginger thinly and cut into slices or grate on a sharp grater. It can be added to desserts, stews, soups or curries.

Ground ginger just can’t compare to fresh ginger when it comes to adding flavour to food. If you want to substitute fresh ginger for ground ginger in a recipe, the proportion is: ½ teaspoon of ground ginger to 2 cm of fresh ginger root.

Extra tip for the consumer
Try making tea with fresh ginger and hot water. It’s a wonderfully refreshing drink. In Asia this tea is particularly popular on hot days.
