Tips on buying quality ginger

Our recommendation is to eat fresh wherever possible, and from a reliable supplier. With dried ginger, some care must be taken. From our knowledge in the industry, dried ginger is treated with sulphur for the drying process (other heat treatments are sometimes too expensive for certain importing countries). Therefore, we advise caution when buying dried ginger from small traders in certain countries where quality is not always first priority before price. In case you’re unsure, please refer to our quality and grade standards here when buying good quality dried ginger.
