WHAT ARE GINGER FLAKES?
Ginger flakes are made with African fresh ginger roots. The roots are grated, dried under the sun, and hand-roasted with raw cane sugar.
It is then shipped directly from the Ivory Coast.
In September 2020, SACO Ginger Flakes won the 3 Star Great Taste Award 2020.
The Great Taste Award is the world's largest and most trusted food and drinks award.
In 2020, they have received a record-breaking 12,777 entries😲 from 106 different countries and only 1.6% of products achieved a 3-star award, which is the highest accolade in Great Taste 2020.
Having a premium African product like the SACO Ginger Flakes among that 1.6% is a massive achievement for us and we couldn't be prouder.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF NATURAL GINGER FLAKES?
Ginger is rich in gingerol, a powerful component rich in medicinal properties. For centuries, it has been considered one of the most effective anti-inflammatory and antioxidant that nature has to offer, which is why it is known as a superfood.
It is traditionally used to combat Indigestion, Nausea, Joint/Muscle Pain and Soreness.
HOW CAN I USE IT?
Ginger flakes is such a versatile product. It is commonly used as a tea (hot or iced).
For a 200 ml cup, steep 1 teaspoon (6-8g) of natural ginger flakes in hot water for 5 - 9 minutes, depending on how mild or strong you want it, and serve in a mug with your favorite sweetener or just as it is.
You can use a teapot with an infuser or a strainer to remove the ginger bits, or you can leave them in the cup and chew them while drinking the tea.
It can also be enjoyed:
• as a breath freshener
• in smoothies or detox juices as a natural flavouring
• sprinkled on your favourite muesli or granola for breakfast
• in baking
