What is crystallized ginger?**
Also known as candied ginger, crystallized ginger refers to slices of golden ginger that have been covered in organic cane sugar. The process begins with fresh, young ginger root that has been carefully grown by trusted growers under strict organic standards. After the ginger root has been harvested, it is then washed, sorted and stored in brine pools. Afterwards, the fully brined young ginger is then washed with fresh water, sliced into 5-8 mm chips and then transferred to the leaching tank for the de-brining, or water leaching, process. Next, the ginger chips undergo the crystallization processes whereupon they are coated in organic cane sugar and then allowed to dry. The end result is a tasty treat that is chewy, flavorful and offers a variety of health benefits.
What is Groovy Bee® Crystallized Ginger made of?**
Organic ginger – Ginger is the horn-shaped rhizome of Zingiber officinale, a plant native to southeast Asia. Known for its distinct aroma and flavor, this herb is traditionally used to support healthy digestion, as well as optimal liver and gallbladder health. Ginger root has an outstanding nutritional profile, containing over a hundred bioactive components. According to an article from the International Journal of Preventive Medicine, ginger root owes its many health benefits to its natural abundance of gingerols, paradols, shogaol and other phytochemicals.
Organic cane sugar – Cane sugar is a sweet, crystalline substance derived from organic sugarcane. Research indicates cane sugar is rich in antioxidant polyphenols and contains plenty of powerful phytonutrients, such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese and iron. Cane sugar is a much healthier alternative to refined white sugar. When consumed in moderation, organic cane sugar serves as a great ingredient for improving the taste and texture of other foods.
