Dry Split Ginger
Ginger (Zingiber Officinale) is a commodity that is highly valued in international markets for its aroma, pungency, and high oil and Aleo resin content. Nigeria is the third-largest exporter of ginger in the world after China and India.
Most of the dried ginger that is available for international trade are simply sun-dried over a few days, but artificial drying is also used in areas lacking a defined dry season to coincide with the harvest. The rhizome is dried to between 10 and 12 percent moisture content.
