The rhizome is used worldwide as spices for flavouring in a number of food-products and also used in medicine. Apart from being a spice in a recipe, ginger can be used as processed products such as ginger Sherbet, candy, pickle, etc. Ginger used in traditional medicine, has been found to possess antioxidant effect that can control the generation of free radicals.
