Marina, Calif. (March 22, 2011) – Known around the globe for her thoughtful recommendations and endorsements, Oprah’s ‘seal of approval’ has catapulted many worthwhile products into the consciousness of her countless fans. The Ginger People most recently captured this recognition for their organic minced ginger, as noted in the April issue of O, The Oprah Magazine.

The organic minced ginger, offered by The Ginger People as part of their ‘pantry essentials’ collection, was included in the article titled “Quick and Tasty Foods From Your Supermarket’s Asian Aisle.” Recommendations were made on ways to incorporate this versatile and flavorful ginger product into stir-fries, coleslaw and even marinades. Other products included in the article were gourmet spice pastes, seaweed snacks, miso broth, noodle bowls and spicy peanuts.

The Ginger People is regarded as the leading brand of premium ginger-based food products and ingredients, offering everything from chews to soothing elixirs to the recently-announced skin care line, GO. Other products included in their ‘pantry essentials’ collection include organic pickled sushi ginger, organic grated ginger, organic ginger juice and their organic ginger syrup, which was received a VegNews Best of Show award at the Natural Products Expo earlier this month.
