Ginger can be dried into a powder or consumed fresh, both with similar health benefits—whether you sip ginger water, turn it into ginger juice, a ginger smoothie, ginger tea, or a ginger stir-fry. The spicy flavor of ginger comes through a bit more when you use the fresh root, so a quarter teaspoon of ground ginger is roughly equivalent to a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger.
