Sina Tin Tin Jahe Ginger Chew
We all know about ginger - the plant that seems to have a cure for everything, a panacea for a myriad of ills, but do we really know of the powers of this seemingly miracle herb? Are we truly aware of what this little root can do for the modern person?
The earliest example of ginger use leads us to India, where it was utilized by the Yogi as a seasoning to promote mental clarity. Also, the Yogi contrasted it to garlic, where the ginger had a sweet essence which was inoffensive to the gods. Soon, ginger usage spread to China, where it was used in treating nausea, vomiting, and motion sickness. Also, it was adopted in reducing the toxicity of other herbs, absorbing and neutralizing the toxins in the stomach. Further, Asian countries used the ginger as a diaphoretic, purging the body of toxins via its invigoration of the sweat glands. Made into a tea, ginger was used as a carminative, an agent which expels gas from intestines. In the sixth century, usage of ginger spread to Japan, where Today, it remains the favored base for soups and sauces, and prescribed topically for aches and pains. In the Western World, ginger received its debut from the Muslims, who after occupying Spain, made it popular. The Spaniards in turn introduced it to the West Indies and Jamaica. ↑

Sina Tin Tin Jahe Ginger Chew/Candy History
In early 1930s, young Mr. Yeung migrated to Pasuruan, Indonesia, from the impoverished Nan An, Fujian Province in China, to be a street hawker selling drinks. In June 15, 1935, Mr. Yeung founded a small factory "SinA", which in Chinese means "New Asia", to begin making ginger chews. Sindu Amritha, the Indonesian name of the factory is derived from Sanskrit, meaning the River of Life. The names encompass the founder's belief in the healthy nature of ginger candies and his hope in his motherland.
For over more than 80 years now, the ginger chews are still made with the same traditional recipes using fresh and natural ingredients, bringing you the benefits of ginger in a delicious spicy and sweet flavor. ↑
