How to make black garlic?
Place raw garlic bulbs in the oven for 4 -6 weeks, controlling the temperature and humidity. After 2 weeks, the bulbs will start to turn black & after 4 – 6 weeks, they will be sweet, soft and odourless.
Why does raw garlic smell?
Raw garlic’s pungent flavour and aroma are derived from a sulfuric compound called allicin, which is extremely healthy. But, unfortunately equally fragile. Allicin is a potent anti-oxidant compound that breaks down rapidly when exposed to heat or oxygen. This is why cooked garlic has a less intense taste and odour than raw garlic.
Is cooked garlic still healthy?
Yes, the wonderful attribute of garlic and other Allium root vegetables is when one compound is lost another is formed.
Why is black garlic as healthy as raw garlic?
- Black garlic in crafted within its own skin, meaning oxygen cant reduce its medicinal properties during the fermentation process.
- The relatively low cooking temperature and extended processing time allow new enzymes and antioxidant to be created.
- The fermentation process transforms unstable compounds found in raw garlic into stable compounds such as S-allylcysteine (SAC) and S-allymercaptocysteine (SAMC). These compounds contain double the ant-oxidants of regular garlic and are more bio-available, meaning your body can quickly absorb them.
