    well ginger root is just that ginger root, dried and powdered I suppose for your purposes. the extract ought to be standardized for a percentage of gingerols, and perhaps zingerone. 3-5 percent gingerols is common, yet fairly mild. something in the seventies would likely be an oily yellow tarry substance depending on the composition.
