i know that using FRESH ginger is the best form to use in blasts ... BUT ... other then fresh, what would be the preferred forms?

i am to understand that ginger powder tastes different then fresh ginger ...

Dried spices are great - they are more concentrated so you'd use a bit less than if it were fresh. Usually it is a tsp dry = 1 Tbsp fresh; however some do not fit the rule like turmeric - so experimenting is key. The powdered ginger does taste different, however it's not off putting at all :)
I LOVE Ginger as an medicinal-herb! it is GOOD against 300 different diseases that exist today on this world! its even considered as an Holy Spice in many part of the world including also an very important Medicine ans cuisine-ingredient worldwide, mostly Azia and middle-eastern countries! LOVE GINGER! and Turmeric is even more of my personal favorite!
Aren't nutrients lost in the dried/powdered ginger or garlic, opposed to what's in the raw roots or cloves?

Yes, it can be. I always opt for the fresh version when I can!
Ginger root freezes well, all you would need to do is chop off a small piece for your recipe
