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.

Our Registered Dietitian's Top Pick

Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes to add crystallized ginger to stir fries (throw in some cashews, too!). Also, keep a bag of this on hand to boost immunity and to eliminate nausea!

Health Tips

Ginger root (Zingiber officinale) has also been classified as an aid to quit smoking. It has a soothing effect on the lining of the mucous membranes and helps prevent nausea.

“I placed my first order and I received it in less than 24 hours!! The crystalized ginger was excellent and your service is outstanding!! Needless to say, I am working on my next order! ”

“Everything I ordered was delicious and fresh. The candied ginger, in particular, was so good I had to hide the second bag of it to make it last until I got it home: real ginger, not the creepy, processed chunks sold at the so-called natural food stores!”

, Chicago July 9, 2008

“Thank you! I am in Ginger Heaven. My daughter-in-law usually sends a small package for the holidays but this year my girlfriend got addicted to it and cleaned me out. And it's only June! I thought I was going to suffer with four more months of heartburn and indigestion (I was born in NY in 1929 as well). I have not been able to find candied ginger in local stores so thank you for having it and your quick service in getting it to me. Nicely packaged and fresh as well. ”

“The picture for the Ultimate Malted Milk Balls do NO justice! These things are HUGE! My fiance loves them. He eats one with his morning coffee. Strawberries are awesome. Ginger is superb, Cantaloupe is juicy and yummy! As a first time customer, you had me at hello! I will definitely buy again (very soon).”

“I just received my first order from you and must say I am really impressed by the speedy delivery and the products are so beautiful and fresh. I love the ginger because sometime I suffer from indigestion. It really helps. I can appreciate it because it is natural and there are no chemicals to deal with. I highly recommend it for those who wish to get relief in this manner.
Everything is so fresh and I will be ordering candy and nuts later on.Thank you again.

“I had heard that crystalized ginger was good for hot flashes so I bought a bag at a health food store to try. I ate a little over one serving a day and within the week the hot flashes have all but stopped. Today I received my 11 pounds of crystalized ginger in the mail and immediately opened them up. They are excellent. I will tell my friends about the ginger and where to get it. Thank you.”

, Flint, MI August 1, 2007

“Hi: I ordered some crystallized ginger on Tues. evening late, and it arrived promptly to my door, on Wednesday. What service!! And the ginger is delicious! Very moist and fresh and lightly sugared. Hopefully it will help relieve hot flashes, per an article I recently read in our local paper. Thank you so much! Will definitely be ordering again.”
