These crystallized ginger slices are a nutrient-rich snack made from gingerroot that has been cooked properly until it’s soft. The root is then covered with a light sugar coating resulting in a spicy-sweet snack with a chewy and moist texture that makes it surprisingly delicious.
The sweet-spicy taste makes it suitable for cooking and baking. Health benefits of candied ginger include helping to treat nausea, boosting immunity, acting as an anti-inflammatory and helping to reduce stress. Candied ginger is also rich in iron and used as alternative medicine. It has also been shown to help in treating anxiety and insomnia.
