Fermented Black Garlic is one of the newest taste sensations to hit the culinary scene, taking ordinary garlic to a whole new level for flavor, texture and color.
Organic Fermented Black Garlic Purée is made especially for us through a special eco-friendly fermentation system that converts freshly grown organic garlic into a creamy and spreadable “black gold” purée.
So what exactly is black garlic?
Sometimes called “Garlic’s Sweet Secret”, black garlic is fresh garlic (in this case, organically grown fresh garlic) that goes through a high-heat, long-duration fermentation process. Fermentation changes the garlic from white and sharp tasting to black and sweet as its naturally occurring carbohydrates break down into simple sugars.
After fermentation, the garlic is aged for an extended period as a whole bulb. This allows the garlic to deepen in flavor and sweetness and darken in color. When finished, black garlic has a delicious sweet and savory flavor and chewy texture.
Organic Fermented Black Garlic Purée stands apart from other black garlic pastes and purées because it is made only from the freshest organic garlic available. Plus, it’s crafted in true artisan style.
The slow fermentation process used by the manufacturer only adds to garlic’s healthful benefits. The finished product’s ORAC, or oxygen radical absorption capacity value (used to compare antioxidants), grows to double that of fresh garlic. Levels of S-allylcysteine, which are already high in garlic, increase even further.
How can you use Organic Fermented Black Garlic Purée? Taking cues from renowned chefs around the world, you can use it in appetizers, entrees, sides, salads and desserts.
