CULTIVATION AND PRODUCTION
EXTRACTION AND YIELD
Described over more than three thousand years, especially in the Vedic texts, ginger has been the major remedy of Indian medicine to treatment digestive disorders since time immemorial. Women consumed it during pregnancy to prevent nausea. It was one of the exotic spices, along with pepper, clove and cinnamon, with potent odour and flavour that the Romans went to find in the East to spice their cooking and preserve their meats. It is thus in a high position in the "list of essential spices for the home" written in the 1st century A.D. by the famous gourmet Apicius. Dioscorides and Pliny also attribute aphrodisiac properties to ginger. Its root, in the "Edict of Maximum" from 301 A.D., must be sold 400 denarii a pound, the high price being indicative of its scarcity.
