tarted in 1984, The Ginger People is a company that uses organic ginger as the main ingredient in most of their products, which include drinks, candy, cooking sauces, and of course, crystallized ginger. Their products are now available around the globe, and at []


As we are approaching cold and flu season, it is time to start adding more immune boosters such as ginger and garlic to our meals, or even eat them raw/by themselves. Ginger is antiviral, and may aid in preventing illness. Some of the additional benefits of ginger include the relief of nausea, motion sickness, pain, and inflammation [].

I have tried a number of brands of crystallized ginger in the past, and often times they have far too much sugar on them. However, with The Ginger People Organic Crystallized Ginger, the organic sugar that coats the ginger is not too overwhelming, and is just the right amount. While the ginger is nice and spicy (as it should be), it isn’t overpowering, so children and those who don’t like much spice or heat will enjoy eating it.

The ingredients in this product are organic, and in addition The Ginger People state on their website that they use “only the most premium ginger sourced from the premier growing regions around the world” []. They are working toward becoming completely Non-GMO Project Verified, and have some products which have already been verified non-GMO [].


This product is a great sweet and spicy treat that has many great health benefits. It is great eaten on its own, or can be added to recipes such as curries, cookies, and soups.

Products from The Ginger People are available in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, and Europe. I first discovered The Ginger People products in a health food store while on a trip to the UK, so I can attest to the fact that they are fairly easy to find both in North America and elsewhere.

This Organic Crystallized Ginger can be purchased from your local health food store, supermarket, or drugstore, and a 4oz box is about $3.99. You can use the store locator on their website to find where they are sold locally. They come in a fairly small box, and so are handy to stick in your purse (handbag), are great for when travelling, and help add that bit of warmth in winter. So grab yourself a box today!
