The Black Garlic Story
Black Garlic is a unique product with a fig-like texture. With a completely different taste to the pungency of white garlic, it is both sweet & savoury with a flavour of liquorice, tamarind & balsamic. It is mild and delicious and adds real umami to countless dishes.
This very distinctive product is made through the Maillard process, by heating white garlic at a low temperature with high humidity for many weeks. The slow cooking turns it black, and converts the allicin, which gives white garlic it’s pungent flavour, into a mild, sweet, sticky, delicious ingredient. This process also substantially increases the number of healthy compounds much higher than found in white garlic, such as S-Allylcysteine, a powerful antioxidant.
It has a shelf life of up to 18 months.
