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'm so happy, my order came quickly as usual and everything looks great. Didn't try all of it yet...have to save some for guests. The crystalized ginger is awesome and am trying to hide the pistachios from my son....it's his favorite and I want to put them in his stocking for Christmas. Thanks again and Merry Christmas to everyone at Nuts-on-line!”

“Wow! Got the crystallized ginger quickly! It's wonderful, and that huge package will be divided up for Christmas presents! Thanks so much! ”

“I'm a "health nut" (pun intended!) so when I received my crystallized ginger, I appreciated having less sugar and thicker slices of ginger. A few weeks ago I bought a small package of ginger with alot of sugar and it was $7.95 for what was probably 1/4 lb or less.
Thanks for an excellent product. This was the first, but not the last, time I placed an order.

“My friend Paul Pfadenhauer in Cocoa Beach, Fl recommended you and gave me some of your crystallized ginger. I gave some to a friend. We are both hooked, but as she is 101 years old I ordered some for her on this my first order. She likes to put some in her green tea. The Simply Blueberries are fabulous flavor and I'm looking forward to experimenting with the raw Org blueberry pwdr. AND, thanks so much for the gift of the figs. Just ate one and you can be sure I'll repay your generosity with some figs on my next order. They are yummy!
thanks for the quality real food.
Merry Christmas to y'all, Sally”

“Just received my order...opened all nuts and taste tested each kind...excellent. The Brazil nuts were the best I've had, cashews were EXCELLENT, as were the walnuts, and peanuts. Your crystalized ginger is excellent, not loaded with a thick sugar coating and doesn't have the funny taste of others I've bought. Pumpkins seeds are soooo good. Looking forward to my coffee...feel safe in saying I bet I'll love them too. Was pleasantly surprized by the Veggie Chips...who would have thought I would love a crunchy green bean..yet I do. I read your history as I waited for the Fed Ex delivery...I so appreciate your long standing and what a lovely history you all have. Bless you all, you have a new very satisfied customer.”

“You guys really are nuts! The crystallized ginger is wonderful. The mixed Syrian spices I couldn't wait to start baking with. There aren't enough words for the chocolate covered expresso beans. Thank you, thank you!!”
Margaret McGrath, Brockton, Mass September 21, 2010
“Oh my goodness I just love the zany e-mail I received concerning the delivery of my order. This is my first time ordering from your site and I know I will be a returning customer. The mint chocolate covered cookie bits are just like I expected. The crystalized ginger has a nice bite just like a ginger snap cookie and tomorrow I will be baking a few batches using the crystalized ginger. I'm so glad I found your site.”
Elizabeth, Sprigfield, MA September 7, 2010
“The sliced crystal ginger is the best flavored ginger I have found anywhere, and the price is certainly reasonable.... I use ginger in every cup of tea, and I am an avid tea drinker..
For the Holidays I will have to try the Dark Chocolate covered ginger.. Way to go Nuts Online!!!!!”
Lisa, Camden, NY August 31, 2010
“I ordered the crystallized ginger and it's delectable! I like to keep it on hand because hubby & I both get stomach ailments from time to time. I also wanted it for one of my Christmas cookie recipes. It's so expensive in the stores. I paid about $8 for one of those little glass McC-----k's bottles. And the fig sample was to die for! I'll be placing an order for more things for Christmas. And the delivery time was phenomenal! We had the stomach flu when I ordered and we still had it when the ginger arrived and it helped a lot with the nausea. This is a wonderful company to deal with. Thanks, you buncha nutz!”
