Buy Sand Ginger
Regency Sand Ginger is a plant native to India, China and Indonesia. It grows in wet forest regions, and has edible roots, which flaunt a delectable mango scent, with a flavour profile most similar to ginger. This elusive spice is commonly used in curry powders, pickling, thai salads, pastes, as well as used to fragrance soaps and perfumes!
In our native Hong Kong, sand ginger is also reknowned for it's chinese herbal qualities, and commonly prescribed by chinese practitioners for curing all kinds of ailments.
Chinese chefs have also incorporated this into local cuisine, by using sand ginger powder as a simple seasoning to rub on meats before steaming to keep all the flavours intact and wonderful sweet fragrance.

Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
I am sorry...haven’t had time or opportunity to try any of it out. I will let you know when I am able to. But on customer relations I give good marks.
