Botanical Name: Zingiber officinale
Components: Our crystallized ginger is made from the knobbly, aromatic root of the ginger plant. This root naturally has a peppery and slightly sweet flavor, which is then made more sweet by crystallizing it – cooking the root in syrup and then covering it with sugar.
Overview: This sweet treat does a lot more for you than it may seem. Crystallized ginger is great for treating upset stomachs and nausea, as well as reducing stress. Its anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting properties make this root a great snack when you’re under the weather.
Uses: Eat plain or include in desserts or salads for a sweet and flavorful taste.
Origin: Southeast Asia
