Developing a beverage takes passion and dedication. We created PurGinger® to help you add bold, spicy ginger flavor to your project with absolute efficiency. Our highly water-soluble organic ginger powder mixes seamlessly into your solution and is consistent in every batch. With over 20 years of experience in manufacturing food ingredients, you can have confidence in our quality measures that ensure no risk of microbial contamination, heavy metals, or other impurities. Consider organic PurGinger® for your next functional flavor.
Nothing can beat working with real, fresh organic ginger, but it comes with its share of challenges. Fresh ginger takes hours to process and requires a reasonable way to manage the waste. Availability is also tricky because ginger is a seasonal crop. Additionally, the potency and flavor of ginger have a significant variance from batch to batch, and ginger becomes less pungent over time as it oxidizes. PurGinger® organic ginger powder is standardized to 2% gingerols, the active compound in ginger, providing consistent flavor and spice in every serving. We have removed much of the insoluble plant material while keeping the integrity of the nutritional and taste benefits allowing for a highly water soluble ginger ingredient.
Many other ginger ingredients will fall out of solution, causing sedimentation and gritty mouthfeel due to a lack of solubility. Juices and concentrates are perishable and require expensive frozen shipping and storage. PurGinger® organic ginger powder is a dry ingredient that is shelf-stable for up to two-years. By reducing overhead expenses, shipping costs, processing time, and loss due to spoilage or contamination, PurGinger® allows manufacturers to add consistency and quality their ginger products.

Fully Water Soluble!
PurGinger® organic ginger extract is perfect for beverages, stick packs, or effervescent tablets looking to add this amazing functional flavor! Unlike concentrates or juices, PurGinger® organic ginger extract is fully water soluble and will not settle or cause other undesired textures like cloudiness or particulates.
Shelf Stable Organic Extract
The cost of shipping a frozen or refrigerated ginger juice is often more than 12X that of a shelf stable powdered extract. Additionally, the storage requirements of frozen materials are expensive and limited. With PurGinger® organic ginger extract, you can eliminate frozen shipping and storage as it has a two-year shelf life rather than a few days after thawing of a juiced-based ingredient.
100% Organic, NON-GMO
“Not a whole food?” PurGinger® truly is pure organic ginger, it simply utilizes a different type of extraction than a pressed or juiced concentrate. The net result is very similar but the difference is in the extraction technology and capabilities that can more accurately isolate the active components, called gingerol.
Saves Time & Cost in Formulation
PurGinger® organic ginger extract is consistent in formulation and easy to take to scale. Because it is a standardized extract, manufacturers can provide consistent product flavor and nutritional benefits from ginger.
