Ginger Flakes

Ginger flakes are small pieces of dried ginger root that have been sliced or diced into thin, flat pieces. They are similar in texture and appearance to other dried herbs or spices, such as crushed red pepper flakes. Ginger flakes are often used as a seasoning or ingredient in cooking and baking. Ginger flakes can be found in many grocery stores and specialty spice shops, and they are also available online.

Gelatinized Ginger Powder

Gelatinized ginger powder is a form of ginger powder that has been treated with an enzyme to make it more easily digestible and to increase its bioavailability. The process of gelatinization involves breaking down the starch molecules in the ginger root through the use of heat and enzymes, resulting in a more concentrated form of ginger powder that is easier to absorb by the body.

Gelatinized ginger powder is often used as a dietary supplement and is believed to provide many of the same health benefits as regular ginger powder, such as reducing inflammation, improving digestion, and relieving nausea. It may also have additional benefits due to its increased bioavailability, meaning that the body is able to absorb and utilize more of the active compounds in the ginger powder.
