$27.95

$13.9 per 100g

 

Black garlic is a type of aged fermented garlic that is coloured deep brownish-black.

 

Description

Black garlic is created through a fermentation process that involves heating whole bulbs of garlic at a low temperature (usually around 140 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit or 60 to 77 degrees Celsius) over an extended period, typically several weeks. During this process, the garlic undergoes Maillard reactions and caramelization, resulting in a darkened color, soft and sticky texture, and a unique sweet and savory flavor. The cloves turn dark brown to black, and the pungency of raw garlic is replaced by a rich, molasses-like taste with hints of balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Nutrition Information (per 100g): The nutritional content of black garlic can vary based on the specific fermentation process used. Here's a general overview:

Culinary Uses:

While black garlic is known for its distinctive taste and potential health benefits, it is essential to note that it is a specialty ingredient and may not replace the traditional use of raw or cooked garlic in all recipes. As with any food, it's best to enjoy black garlic in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
