Close where the Lakadong Turmeric is grown, there is the cultivation of another rhizome that is marked for its outstanding quality. It is the ginger of the Jaintia hills. The ginger variant of Meghalaya, known as the Ing Makhir is quite distinct from the usual ginger that you get in other parts of the country.
In this variant, the gingerol content is much greater than the ordinary ginger you come across in the market. The authentic Meghalaya ginger root is thus much better in terms of medicinal properties and overall nutrient contents. The ground ginger procured from Jaintia hills is ground in our in-house plant and specially packaged so that the freshness remains intact.
