"It's surprisingly spicy with notes of pineapple and fresh herbs, and adds a kick to anything it's used in." Food & Wine Our ground Buffalo Ginger is an heirloom variety grown in the mountains of northern Vietnam. This ginger packs a punch with its fruity, floral aroma and powerful heat. This is a complex, flavorful ginger powder that will elevate baked goods, stews, curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails. In Vietnam, this ginger is used with chicken, soup, rice, and candy. It’s also been used for medicinal purposes — to calm upset stomachs, restore appetite, and support the immune system. Any way you slice it, this is a spicy, wonderfully intense ginger.

Ginger, ground (Zingiber officinale)


Cao Bằng, Vietnam

We've partnered with DACE, a social enterprise in Vietnam, to connect with the farmers growing our Buffalo Ginger. The ginger is grown by communities of Hmong farmers in Vietnam's northern highlands, who are learning to grow higher-value crops and transitioning to organic and regenerative agricultural methods. We're honored to support them in that work, and to share their spicy, zingy ginger with you!
