The ginger family, Zingiberaceae, is a monocotyledenous family in the order Zingiberales. This family is tropical in native distribution and is a particularly common Indomalayan flora, in the areas between India and New Guinea. Some species grow in more temperate climates. The genus name comes from the Greek ‘Zingiberi’, which in turn is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning ‘root’. Zingiberaceae species typically have thick, fleshy rhizomes with secretory cells that produce pungent essential oils. Plants in the Zingiberaceae include common ginger, turmeric, galangal and cardamom.
Common ginger has been revered as both a spice and medicinal plant since ancient times, and is written of extensively in Vedic, Buddhist, Arabic, Greek and Roman texts. It is a reed-like plant with a large rhizome that is valued for its combination of pungent and aromatic qualities that arise from its content of phenolic compounds and essential oils.1
