Ginger is one of those great things to include in your diet.
I've been trying to include it more in my recipes for it's anti-inflammatory qualities. Ginger has also been a proven remedy for nausea and vomiting
along with other stomach ailments. Ginger Ale is often given to a sick child with a tummy ache.
But guess what? There is no Ginger in Ginger Ale!
I don't drink much soda because of all the sugar it has, but recently my wife and I went out to dinner and I decided to drink Canada Dry Ginger Ale.
Although it still contains a lot of sugar I felt it was better than the other soft drink options due to it's Ginger content. My wife asked if I knew
how much Ginger is in Ginger ale. I had no idea. I wondered if there was even a significant amount.
So we went home and I hit the Internet looking for answers. Right away I went to canadadry.com. I was shocked!
