Ginger : Cultivation, Processing, Utilizations and Applications

"In India, ginger is applied as a paste to the temples to relieve headache, and consumed when suffering from the common cold. Ginger with lemon and black salt is also used for nausea.

In Indonesia, ginger (jahe in Indonesian) is used as a herbal preparation to reduce fatigue, reducing `winds' in the blood, prevent and cure rheumatism and control poor dietary habits.

In Nepal, ginger is called aduwa and is widely grown and used throughout the country as a spice for vegetables, used medically to treat cold and also sometimes used to flavor tea.

In the Philippines, ginger is known as luya and is used as a throat lozenge in traditional medicine to relieve sore throat. It is also brewed into a tea known as salabat.

In the United States, ginger is used to prevent motion and morning sickness. It is recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration and is sold as an unregulated dietary supplement. Ginger water is also used to avoid heat cramps.

In Peru, ginger is sliced in hot water as an infusion de Kion.

In Japan it is purported to aid blood circulation. Scientific studies investigating these effects have been in conclusive and a local sweetener made from palm tree juice (htan nyat) are boiled together and taken to prevent the flu.

In China, ginger is included in several tradition preparations. A drink made with sliced ginger cooked in water with brown sugar oracola is used as a folk medicine for the common cold. `Ginger eggs' (scrambled eggs with finely diced ginger root) is a common home remedy for coughing. The Chinese also make a kind of dried ginger candy that is fermented in plum juice and sugared, which is also commonly consumed to suppress coughng. Ginger has also been historically used to treat inflammation, which several scientific studies support, through one arthritis trial showed ginger to be no better than a placebo or ibuprofen for treatment of osteoarthritis.

In Congo, ginger is crushed and mixed with mango tree sap to make tangawisi juice, which is considered a panacea.

These scattered information on Ginger is completed in the form of a book which can be very well accepted by Agriculturists, Scientists, Post Graduate Students and Research Scholars. All the chapters of the book is edited and arranged in a simple way for better and easy understanding."
