Wild Ginger is a rare species that grows wild in the Preah Vihear Province of Cambodia

An exclusive collection of Wild Ginger

Our Wild Ginger was collected in the forests of Preah Vihear Province in northern Cambodia. Known for its magnificent temple, erected during the Khmer Empire and now classified as a Unesco heritage site, the province of Preah Vihear is located in the extreme north of Cambodia, on the border with Thailand. Our pickers spend several days in the forest, at the end of the rainy season, to collect the wild ginger roots. They are then brought to La Plantation to be selected and dehydrated.  

What is Wild Ginger

Ginger is an ancient plant that belongs to the Zingiberacea family, which includes the rhizomes of Ginger and Galanga. 

Originally from India, ginger is one of the first spices to be imported into Europe, by the spice route from the 1st century BC. Used in Ancient Egypt to mummify bodies, it was widely used in cooking by the Greeks and Romans and for its benefits in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

The variety of Wild Ginger that we offer is recognized under the botanical name Kaempferia Galangal Linn. It is very rare and exclusive to find a wild species of Ginger which is now mainly cultivated in hot tropical areas.

Widely used in cooking, Wild Ginger is a powerful spice with a fresh, peppery flavor and pungent citrus notes. The intense aromas of our Wild Ginger will awaken your taste buds!

The harvest and the meticulous preparation of the Wild Ginger

The Wild Ginger powder was produced immediately after harvesting. It is for you a pledge of quality that you can appreciate by opening the bag. The rhizomes, freshly collected, have been processed and dehydrated at low temperature to preserve the power of their aromas.

 

With its powerful and fragrant notes, Ginger is a perfect match for all your dishes from appetizer to dessert

The aromas of our Wild Ginger are powerful. We advise you to add it to your dishes as you go along and according to the taste you wish to give to your preparation. It is necessary to count approximately half a teaspoon of Wild Ginger for a dish for two people.

Ginger is your best ally in the kitchen: with its powerful and fragrant notes, it goes well with all your dishes from appetizer to dessert. 

Its energizing virtues are also a plus for your health and will be revealed in a fruit juice or smoothies or mixed with lemon juice.
