What should we replace the expensive spice with?
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic around the world, the prices of ginger are skyrocketing, and in some places it cannot even be found. That's why more and more people are looking for its alternative.
We offer you several options for substitutes:
What ginger helps to reduce the likelihood of infection are phytoncides - volatile biologically active substances that give it its specific, spicy taste. They destroy viruses. In addition to ginger, phytoncides are quite rich in vegetables such as onions, garlic and turnips.
The second useful component is related to the weakening of inflammatory processes in the body.
The anti-inflammatory effect reduces the excessive reaction of the body after the penetration of viruses.
Turmeric has such properties. Turmeric has even been known since ancient times as the number one anti-inflammatory product. Currants, cranberries and raspberries also work in the same way, said the nutritionist.
The third valuable property of ginger is the cell protection associated with the high content of antioxidants. They are also found in red peppers and fresh tomatoes.
