Recipe - Turmeric Ginger Almond Cranberry Power Boost

The hands down favorite from a recent Manhattan NY product tasting, this simple heart-health combination is delicious, nutritious and packed with energy.


Turmeric Almond Ginger Cranberry power boost


Energy + boosted anti-inflammatory and antioxidant bioavailability. Three simple ingredients combine to provide four wellness advantages in every serving.

  • Turmeric Dusted Baby Ginger is a two-for-one bonus. Early season, mild ginger is packed with antioxidants. Naturally preserved in cane sugar and infused with our USDA Organic, USA grown Turmeric, bursting with flavor and prized as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant dynamic duo.
  • Almonds provide a complex array of vitamins, minerals and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and protein. Eaten together the fats from the almonds help increase solubility of key active compounds in the Turmeric and Ginger and boost their bioavailability in our bodies.
  • Dried cranberries are high in Vitamin C and other natural phytochemicals that like ginger can help soak up free radicals that can damage our DNA and cells.

We often get questions about the sugar content of preserved ginger. When we grow and harvest Ginger, it is not naturally high in simple sugars. Unlike many fresh fruits that average around 10% sugar, ginger naturally has only a few percent. When we dry fruit, we remove the water and concentrate the sugars. This gives dried fruit both its delicious sweet concentrated flavor, but most importantly also acts as a natural preservative. To provide the same level of natural preservation, fresh early season ginger is steeped in a cane sugar solution. Some of the water is replaced by the cane sugar. The result is a product very similar to dried fruit.  You should enjoy preserved ginger as you would dried fruit. Be mindful that they contain sugar and combine them with healthy fiber for slow and steady glycemic release.

Enjoy the mix as a snack, or my favorite, sprinkled over a salad.
