About Crystallized Ginger
Crystallized ginger is pungent with a spicy-sweet flavor and is moist and chewy. It is embraced as a natural remedy for reducing hot flashes - huge numbers of women swear by it. It helps alleviate indigestion and colds...and don't forget to take it with you on boat trips for sea sickness! (Some of us here know from experience that it's an absolutely essential part of your travel kit...)
Interestingly, ginger itself is as old as the recorded history of man. A native to southern Asia and India, it is spoken of in the Jewish Talmud, written about by Marco Polo, and even recommended by Henry VIII as a remedy against the plague.
Crystallized Ginger Health Benefits
1) Anti-Inflammatory Effects: Crystallized ginger can reduce inflammation and relieve the pain associated with it. A 2012 study published in the journal Arthritis compared the anti-inflammatory effect of ginger extract to that of common drugs used in the treatment of arthritis, such as cortisone and ibuprofen. The researchers observed that ginger extract was as effective as cortisone at relieving arthritic pain, and that ginger can treat inflammation without the negative side effects associated with the common drugs.
2) Treatment for Nausea: Ginger has long been used as a natural remedy to alleviate nausea caused by motion sickness, morning sickness, and chemotherapy. A study funded by the National Cancer Institute examined over 600 people who had experienced nausea after a chemotherapy treatment. Those patients who received ginger supplements throughout the rest of their treatments experienced a 40 percent reduction in nausea symptoms.
3) Immunity-Booster: During flu season, make sure you have crystallized ginger on-hand! Ginger contains active compounds that can relieve sinuses and protect the body against toxins and viruses. A 2008 article published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine discussed ginger’s ability to activate T-cells, a group of white blood cells that help destroy viruses and tumor cells.

“I was very ill with stomach problems for a month. I was tired of going from one doctor to another without receiving answers. I started to research natural and organic foods that might help my digestive system. I found your site, called and spoke with a lovely person that gave me the history of the company and how she used certain products added to her diet. I ordered a few things. It arrived in 2 days!! I now order every 2 weeks. It has been almost two months now and my digestive problems have returned to normal. I swear by the ginger. When I have an upset stomach, I eat about four pieces and I have no problems. I am not saying that you should not go to a doctor for health issues, but since I changed my diet and added food supplements from your company, I feel better and have more energy! Thank you!!! I will be a loyal customer for life!”

“I just received my order (in record time) and I'm SO impressed with the coconut chips and crystallized ginger. The ginger is higher quality than what's available at my grocery store, and at a much better value. And the coconut chips - I have to second what another reviewer said - they have a moist, almost chewy texture and a natural sweetness that I was not expecting. Excellent products and excellent customer service - I'll be back for more! :)”

“Nuts Online is by far the best Internet company I have ever dealt with. I placed my order on Tuesday and my package was waiting for me when I got home on Wednesday. And... the product itself exceeded my expectations. I will be ordering again in the future and telling all my friends about this wonderful company! Thank you!”

“They are the freshest crystalized ginger I ever ate this side of China. I am ordering 2 bags (lbs) one for me and one for my wife.”

“My God, what wonderful treats. I'm the kind of person, who will voice my opinion if something isn't right or good. But I also, will give credit when it is due. Your products are simply superb and delicious. You are a professional company with excellent quality products. I am going to enjoy being a regular customer. It's been a long time since I've seen good stuff like these. Please expand your selections and give us more. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

“RE: Candied ginger slices
They taste great!”
Carrie, Plant City, FL January 13, 2011
“I received my second order very promptly. Everything is so good. The crystallized ginger is absolutely awesome! I have been spreading the word about nutsonline to all my family and friends.
The first order was a sampler and I couldn't wait to place another order.
I am trying to discipline myself with ordering because there are so many yummy selections.
I love this company!”

“High quality crystallized ginger is difficult to find at a reasonable price. Nutsonline has it, in spades! Rather uniform sizes, good packaging, and great flavor. I primarily use it to make ginger rice (about 50-60 grams per cup of basmati rice). Cut up in 1/8 to 3/16-inch cubes and add to the cooking water. It cuts clean and is not gooey sticky like the uncrystallized or candied ginger. Great as a snack to get your ginger fix or in your homemade trail mix.”
