Black garlic is fresh raw garlic that has been aged and undergone a fermentation process at a controlled level of temperature and humidity. It is made by heating whole bulbs of garlic over the course of several weeks, and during this timely process the cloves turn a distinctive black colour, as well as changing in texture and flavour. The result is softer, chewier and sweeter than your normal raw garlic.
Black garlic was first used as an ingredient in Asian cuisine, but is now sought after and rising in popularity all around the world. Like fresh raw garlic, black garlic has antioxidants and key nutrients than can be beneficial to your health. Black garlic is rich in amino acids, and boasts higher antioxidant levels than white garlic, contributing to its various health benefits. Black garlic has more of a compound called SAC (S-Allylcysteine), which helps the body to absorb allicin. Allicin is one of the sulphur containing compounds responsible for the strong aroma of garlic. It is this and its other sulphur containing compounds that scientists believe are responsible for many of the health benefits garlic boasts. With a greater concentration of SAC, black garlic may be more effective at helping the body to harness the benefits that the allicin content in the garlic provides.
