Fermented Black Garlic Extract review:
What is fermented black garlic extract?Black garlic, according to Wikipedia, is a type of fermented garlic, deriving its name from the color of the cloves after an ageing process. The process of producing black garlic is sometimes (incorrectly) referred to as “fermentation”, but it does not in fact involve microbial action. This is also known as an ageing process as no yeast or fungus is involved. Aged Black Garlic’s fermentation is accomplished naturally by enzymatic reaction,which gives it higher concentrations of antioxidants and reduces the odor associated with raw garlic. Although fermented black garlic made its debut in Korea and Japan, nowadays all these fermented black garlic extract or aged black garlic extract ingredients are imported from China exclusively.
How Black garlic is made from fresh garlic?
Black garlic is produced by fermenting whole bulbs of fresh garlic in temperatures of 65 to 80 deg C in a humidity-controlled room for nearly a month. After this, the garlic cloves will have turned black. To achieve a sweet, prune-like taste, the fermented garlic is left to oxidise in a clean room for 45 days.
Black garlic can be eaten raw or cooked in the same manner as fresh garlic.
