Finely sliced ginger bathed in a lightly salty and tangy brine. Natural and banging with live probiotics and serious punch, K4 Cultured Just Ginger is spicy, salty and awesome.
Ginger is well-known as a natural remedy – anti-nausea, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. All this, fermented with our live lacto-probiotic cultures – that’s some serious culinary power.
Ginger belongs to the same family of plants as turmeric and cardamom and originated in tropical rainforests, from the Indian subcontinent to Sothern Asia.It is now grow in many parts of the world, from Jamaica to Australia (ours comes spray-free from Fiji). K4 Cultured Just Ginger comes pre-sliced, so you can either just add a few slices into whatever you’re cooking or dice it up even further. Remember, however, that high temperatures in the cooking process may kill off the good probiotic bacteria. If you want to keep those helpful, friendly microbes around, it’s best to add it in at the end, so it just has time to warm through and for the flavours to combine.

A growing amount of research is currently being conducted on the health benefits of ginger. It has been used as a traditional medicine for many years and is often used by people to cure nausea and an unsettled stomach. Gingerols are the pungent compounds found in the rhizomes of ginger, and are believed to be responsible for the reduction in pain and improvements to mobility of patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, as they have potent anti-inflammatory properties.
