Ginger has been consumed for many decades by folks all over the world, particularly in Asia, both as spice and medicine.
Many studies have suggested that increasing consumption of plant foods like ginger decreases the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and overall mortality while promoting healthy complexion and hair, increased in energy and overall lowers weight. It is excellent for those who are feeling cold and to ward off flu.
Most of the time, fresh ginger purchased from the wet market comes from neighbouring Asian countries. Folks will just cut the ginger into a few slices and simmer for a few hours. The ginger drink is then consumed hot.
With this awareness, ‘Ginger Powder’ is now available in the market. This is particularly useful for busy people, either to make a quick ginger drink, or to just add to their cooking.
Unfortunately, many of these ‘Ginger Powder’ brands in the market are filled with fillers, to keep the cost down. What are these fillers? Mainly rice flour and green pea powder. Some also choose to consume their Ginger Drink from instant Ginger Tea available from the local store. If one were to look at the ingredient list, it is normally added with sugar, to make it more affordable, less spicy and palatable.
This is where we see the gap in the market. We, at Rhymba Hills® only want QUALITY and PURE products. NO sugar, fillers or additives. Only the best that the market has to offer.
And we decided we want to market the humble yet powerful ginger. The best place to grow ginger in Malaysia is in Bentong, Pahang (due to its rich soil). Thus, we source our ginger from Bentong, Pahang from ethical farmers, who only supply 100% Bentong ginger, and not mixed with ginger from other sources. Majority of ginger sourced from other countries have high levels of pesticides.
