Ginger has a few names that are usually distinguished by color and size. There are white ginger/ big yellow, white ginger/small yellow, and the red ginger. Although it has many name based on the name and size, the general content of ginger have the same.
Generally, three types of ginger contains: starch, essential oils, fibers, small amounts of protein, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes called Proteolytic Zingibain. Dried ginger has a water content of 7-12%, 1-3% essential oil, oleo resin 5-10%, 50-55% starch and a small amount of protein, fiber, fat to 7%.
From the chemical element, the main component of fresh ginger is homologous phenol compounds known as Gingerol Ketone. Gingerol very unstable in the presence of heat and at high temperatures will turn into Shogaol. Shogaol more spicy than Gingerol, is the main component of dry ginger.
The specific nature of ginger caused by volatile oil and ginger oleoresin. The fragrant aroma of ginger is caused by the essential oil, oleoresin while causing a spicy flavor.
Benefits of Ginger Based of Nutritions
According the research by Hernani and Hayani, red ginger has
- starch content (52.9%),
- essential oil (3.9%) and
- Alcohol-soluble extract (9.93%) higher than Emprit ginger (41.48, 3, 5, and 7.29%) and Elephant ginger (44.25, 2.5 and 5.81%).
The nutritional value of 100 grams of dry ginger
- Water content of 15% has a composition of 7.2 to 8.7 g,
- Dat 5.5 to 7.3 g,
- 2.5 to 5.7 grams ash,
- iron (9.41 mg),
- calcium (104.02 mg)
- and phosphorus (204.75 mg).
The chemical composition of ginger is influenced by various factors, including the time of harvest, the environment (altitude, rainfall, soil type), the state of the rhizome (fresh or dried) and geography. Spicy flavor of fresh ginger gingerol originating from a group of compounds, namely phenol derivatives.
Spill / highest component of gingerol is 6-gingerol. Spicy flavor of dried ginger compounds derived from shogaol shogaol), which is the result of dehydration of gingerol. In the Indonesian Red ginger gingerol compounds and shogaol that ditemukaan is gingerol and shogaol. The main chemical components of its taste is spicy aromatic ketones called gingerol consisting of 6, 8 and 10 gingerol.
- Dried ginger has a water content of 7-12%, 1-3% essential oil, oleoresin 5-10%, 50-55% starch and a small amount of protein, fiber, fat to 7%. The aroma of ginger is highly dependent on volatile oil content (1-3%).
The variation of chemical components in the essential oil of ginger not only because of its variety, but the agro-climatic conditions (climate, season, geographical) environment, the rate of aging, the adaptation of metabolites from plants, distillation conditions and the portions were analyzed.
Several chemical components of ginger, such as gingerol, shogaol and zingerone pharmacological and physiological effects such as anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-carcinogenic, analgesic,non-toxic and non-mutagen even though at high concentrations. The oil in the extract contained seskuiterpen, especially zingiberen, monoterpenes and oxidized.
Ginger oleoresin containing fats, waxes, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals. Oleoresin provide pungency aroma that ranges between 4-7% and have high potential as an antioxidant. The processing of mainly use the heating turned out to be lower levels of 6 gingerol.

Some of the compounds found in ginger, including gingerol, shogaol and zingeron provide pharmacological and physiological activity such as antioxidant effect, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anticarcinogenic and cardiotonic
Antioxidants can help protect your body’s cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals can be obtained naturally and from outside the body. Naturally, free radicals are chemicals produced from the digestion of food. While from the outside of the body, caused by cigarette smoke and radiation.
Free radicals cannot handle the body can lead to many chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.Ginger contains a lot of phenol is efficacious as an antioxidant. Phenol is primarily a phenol-6 gingerol. Bioactive has strong antioxidant power to protect all the cells from exposure to free radicals that damage it.
Biochemical tests showed that gingerol from ginger effectively free radicals. Consumption of ginger 10 mg / kg body weight in mice exposed to radiation can reduce free radical damage. Another study explained that the consumption of ginger able to reduce the damage caused by lipid peroxide in line with increasing levels of post-consumer glutathionee ginger.
4. The volatile oils have antiseptic effect
The content of essential oils in ginger is a chemical used to clean bruises, cuts, abrasions, and minor burns, caused by trauma such as a traffic accident, work accident, or other accidents. Moreover, the antiseptic can also be defined as materials used for the prevention of infection in living tissue such as the skin surface and parts such as lips, urethra and genitalia. Essential oils in ginger is useful in inhibiting the growth of bacteria that is found in living tissues.
Phenol is a major component in the trade antiseptic, triklorofenol otherwise known as TCP (trichlorophenol). Phenol is also a part of several anesthetic oral compositions, such as sprays clorasepthic. Besides phenol there are also other bioactive compounds such as flavonoids, steroids and alkaloids that have roles and functions of each..
5. Prevent and inhibit mildew
Besides being able to prevent the skin exposed to the fungus, the content of essential oils in ginger are also able to inhibit the development of fungi. If there is a fungus in the body, essential oils will react to the fungus.
Red ginger essential oil has anti fungal effects because it contains gingerol, shogaol, zingiberol, and eugenol, and monoterpene. Phenol is a carbolic acid that can block the cell walls of fungi. Phenol derivative compound interacts with fungal cells through adsorption processes involving hydrogen bonds.
At low levels, phenol and protein will bind to form a complex protein-phenol. The phenol-protein complexes have weak bonds and immediately undergo decomposition. Then, this is followed by the penetration of phenol into the yeast cells to cause precipitation and protein denaturation.
Monoterpene compounds (α-pinene, β-pinene, α-terpinene) that interfere with the function of fungal cell membranes. Ginger rhizomes contain antimicrobial compounds phenol, flavonoids, and essential oils can inhibit the growth of microbes.
Eugenol bound to ergosterol in the fungal cell membrane that will disrupt transport processes so that macro molecules and ions within the cell is lost, and cause the destruction of the irreversible, inhibit the biosynthesis of lipids fungi, especially ergosterol in the cell membrane.
