Bentong ginger, also called ¡®young ginger¡¯ or turmeric, is grown on cool highland forests in Malaysia which are absolutely devoid of pollution.
Weather is vital to its growth because it needs an environment that is hot during the day and cold during the night.
Grown in loose fertile soil and irrigated with slow natural streams, Bentong ginger tends to be larger and more nutritious than other types of ginger.
Growing Bentong ginger is an arduous task, and there is only one harvest a year. In order to ensure quality harvests, the land must lie fallow after each harvest for 8-10 years before replanting, which makes Bentong ginger extremely valuable!
Bentong ginger, well-endowed and time-honed, has a darker color than ordinary gingerand is teeming with gingerols that are easily absorbed by the body, giving it a fragrant, aromatic, spicy, tangy and pungent nature.
