Wellness Wednesday: Ing Makhir Ginger Explained

In today’s episode we have the mighty Ing Makhir ginger from Meghalaya! 

The Ing Makhir ginger is a very special type of ginger which is exclusively grown in the scenic hills of Meghalaya. Sleek, thin-skinned, and extremely fibrous in nature, this potent ginger has been considered to be one of the best ginger varieties in Meghalaya, and pretty soon to the rest of India. 

What makes this particular ginger extremely rich and potent is the surplus presence of gingerol, a compound which is present in ginger. Ing Makhir is known to possess high levels of it, and it is one of the factors which makes it extremely pungent and potent.
