Production & Sourcing
Dried crystallized ginger medallions are made by first peeling and slicing fresh ginger root into thin medallion-shaped pieces. These slices are then boiled in a sugar syrup until they’re tender and infused with the syrup’s sweetness. Subsequently, they’re laid out to dry, either by air-drying or using low heat in dehydrators or ovens, until they achieve the desired texture—firm yet chewy with a crystallized sugar coating.
This process preserves the spicy-sweet flavor of ginger while intensifying its sweetness and creating a chewy texture, resulting in the distinctive dried crystallized ginger medallions.

Sweet with a spicy, pungent ginger taste; the sugary crystallized coating adds sweetness while preserving the ginger’s natural heat.
Chewy and slightly sticky due to the crystallized sugar; the interior tends to be softer than the crunchy exterior.
Amber or golden-brown from the crystallization process, encasing the ginger root pieces.
Rich in antioxidants and bioactive compounds like gingerol, aiding digestion, reducing nausea, and potentially offering anti-inflammatory properties. However, the crystallization process usually increases the sugar content.
Low moisture content due to the drying process; the sugar acts as a binding agent, creating a stable structure.
Strong, aromatic scent characteristic of ginger, giving off its signature spicy fragrance.
The sugary exterior provides a sweet contrast to the spicy and zesty ginger flavor, achieving a harmonious balance of tastes.
Ginger holds a significant place in Asian culinary practices and traditional medicine, used both for its unique flavor and potential health benefits.
While beneficial, the high sugar content from crystallization should be monitored, especially for individuals watching their sugar intake.

They can be included in health-oriented products like granola bars, energy bars, or cereals to offer a natural flavor kick while aligning with consumers seeking natural or functional ingredients.
