        Human civilization has been using ginger as a perennial herb with an important delicacy in day to day foods as well as for medical purposes since immemorable times. The botanical name of ginger is Zingiber officinale. Ginger is a rhizome of a flowering plant that grows up to 90 cm, having white and pink buds that bloom into yellow color flowers. Although it is often referred to as a root, however, ginger is actually an underground stem. The ginger rhizome is also pale yellow colored, having thick lobes that are slightly pungent and mildly aromatic smell. It is used for spicing both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, along with fast foods or snacks. Moreover, due to its preservative nature, it is also applied in pickles and preparing sauces and chutney. Because of its all-inclusive usage, it is used in combination with other spices, viz., garlic, onion, and chilies to enhance the savor of a meal. The southern states of India, viz., Kerala, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh along with the eastern states, viz., Odisha, West Bengal, and Assam as well as Madhya Pradesh, account for the most ginger production in the country.

        Different ginger varieties cultivated in India are IISR Varada, IISR Mahima, and IISR Rejatha. These are the high-quality ginger variants mainly grown in Kerala and supplied worldwide. The Cochin ginger is the best-known variety in the international market because of its slight lemon-like flavor and low fiber content. Other ginger varieties like Amaravathi and Bahrica have a high amount of Zingiberene and gingerol compounds. These ginger plants grow fully and are generally harvested between 6-7 months. There are mainly three variants of ginger that is provided by the Sky Agri Export. These are dried ginger whole, dried ginger sliced/chopped, and dry ginger powder.

        When the stalk withers of the ginger plant, i.e., flowers get dried up and fall from the plant, the rhizome is harvested from the ground, and the farmworkers remove the leaves and branches. Thereafter, the soiled ginger is cleaned by using freshwater, and the lumped or curled fingers are separated from each other. It is scalded in steam water inside a boiler to prevent sprouting. After cleaning, the dry ginger root is obtained by peeling off the outer layer/skin of the rhizome and drying it under the sun for a few days. Thereafter, it is processed through a metal detector for the presence of any metallic impurity. The grading process is done to remove odd-sized thin or thick fingers and broken lobes of dried ginger. Finally, the purest gingers are either sent for packaging or further processing to obtain the other two product variants.
