Zingiberaceae’ sure is a funny word to say, but it is the name of the family of super medical roots. That’s right, it’s ginger, and its potent immediate family member, turmeric. We’re putting these anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, immune boosting ingredients to work, hidden in these delicious, fragrant carrot muffins. From the ginger family, to yours.
