How does ginger look when it's bad?
Also question is, what does ginger look like when it's bad?
Fresh ginger is somewhat firm to touch, so if it turns soft or mushy, it's time to let it go. Same thing if the flesh starts to turn dark yellow or greyish, instead of the usual bright yellow. In short, once you see the flesh, you should know if it's okay or not.
Beside above, what color should fresh ginger be? Blue Ginger. Why does fresh ginger sometimes have a blue-gray color? After conferring with our science editor, we learned that when ginger is stored for a long period of time in a cold environment, it becomes less acidic, and this causes some of its anthocyanin pigments to change to a blue-gray color.
Consequently, what will happen if you eat spoiled Ginger?
Rotten ginger root produces a powerful toxin called safrole. Even small amounts can damage your liver cells.
