Our ground Buffalo Ginger is an heirloom ginger variety grown by a group of farmers in the mountains of northern Vietnam. Known for its fruity, floral aroma and powerful heat, this is a complex and flavorful ginger powder that will elevate baked goods, stews and curries, and beverages from hot drinks to cocktails.
In Vietnam, this ginger is used with chicken, soup, rice, and candy. It’s also been used for medicinal purposes — to calm upset stomachs, restore appetite, and support the immune system. Any way you slice it, this is a spicy, wonderfully intense ginger.

The ginger is grown by communities of Hmong farmers in Vietnam's northern highlands, who are learning to grow higher-value crops and transitioning to organic and regenerative agricultural methods. We're honored to support them in that work, and to share their spicy, zingy ginger with you!

Very flavorful condiment. Love ginger in general. Good in your tea or as a seasoning. Use it a lot for Asian cuisine
Great in golden milk
I've been using B&B spices for my homemade golden milk recipe and herbal medicinal teas. There is a noticeable difference in quality between B&Bs spices and what I get from the grocery store. B&B is so much better!! The ginger is spicy and combines well with the other ingredients.
Wonderful. Delicious taste profile.
All of our spices are wonderful - unable to review each individually. Thank you!
