Production of Black Garlic
Black garlic is produced through ripening and fermenting whole bulbs of fresh garlic in a humidity-controlled environment at an appropriate temperature for 45 days, with no additives and preservatives. During the ripening and fermenting processes, the sugar in the garlic turns brown and then black under the effect of heat. Also the black garlic gains viscosity through these processes, which makes it chewy. The finished black garlic tastes sweet and sour with the pungency and spiciness gone, making it appeals to all tastes. (In the industrial production of black garlic, to get the final products with superior quality, the fresh garlic is usually graded by a garlic sorting machine in advance.)
