Where can I find your products?

Click here to find retailers and online shops where you can purchase our products. Product selection will vary by location, so we recommend you contact your retailer first to confirm they have the ginger item(s) you’re searching for in stock.

Why are my Gin Gins® dusted with white powder?

The fine white powder on our Gin Gins® is finely ground cane sugar.  We use it to help reduce the stickiness of our candy. This is all done by hand, so the amount of surface powder can vary from piece to piece.

Yes, we have a recipe section on our U.S. website and we’ll soon have a recipe section up on our EU website. If you would like a specific recipe that you can’t find or you would like to share your own recipe, email us at info@eu.gingerpeople.com

If the product has passed the expiration date indicated on the package, we recommend it be discarded. Products are safe if stored properly even after the Best By date but the quality may change, and we can only guarantee its deliciousness up until its best by date listed on the package.

Which of your products require refrigeration after opening?

Once opened, you should refrigerate our Ginger Juice, Turmeric Juice, Minced Ginger, Grated Ginger and Pickled Sushi Ginger. We do not recommend refrigerating our Ginger Syrup or Ginger Spread, but suggest it be stored in the pantry like honey.

Where is the best before date on your products?

All of our products are date stamped with their Best Before dates. Most are place in the most obvious spot possible. Our sauces are date stamped on the glass, so the Best By can be challenging to find.

Do any of your products have a risk of cross-contamination from allergens?

All our suppliers follow rigorous standards to prevent allergen cross contamination. However, many of our products are produced and/or packed in facilities that process allergens, such as peanuts and soy. All of our products have allergen statements listed on the packaging (if applicable). We recommend checking with your physician if you are concerned about your particular sensitivities.

Do your products contain sulfites?

We follow FDA guidelines and conduct rigorous testing to ensure our products meet or exceed the government regulations with regard to sulfites. Our Crystallized Ginger products may contain trace amounts of sulfite, but under the 10ppm FDA detectable level.
