Natural Texas Black Gold Garlic Products are Creating Quite a Stir
Texas Black Gold Garlic’s rich black cloves are made here in Texas from white garlic grown by local farmers.
Once harvested, locally-grown white garlic bulbs are aged (caramelized) for one to two months using controlled heat and humidity. This process causes certain enzymes and sugars in the cloves to break down naturally – nothing is added.
The cloves inside the paper-thin white skins first turn a deep brown and once the process is complete, they become a soft black. The texture of the cloves changes too – from shiny, firm, white meat to black, soft, sweet, spreadable cloves. The process also causes the strong flavor of the raw white garlic to melt into a mellow, caramelized sweetness, ready to be eaten straight from the bulb or incorporated into any dish that normally uses garlic!
It can also contribute a savory earthiness to other dishes. Black Gold Garlic is full of umami and complex flavors that will take your mouth on an exciting adventure. Once only available to top chefs across the country, they now offer this delicious “black magic” to home chefs as well.
And black garlic does more than just taste good, I has been shown to have many health benefits as well. It has more than quadruple the amount of antioxidants compared to regular garlic and it contains S-Allyl cysteine (SAC), which is converted from Allicin in white garlic. SAC has not been fully tested via clinical trials but shows a tremendous amount of health benefits, according to several studies.
The company goes to great lengths to insure quality and product purity of their garlic so they send their products off for advanced lab testing to ensure they can continue to offer you the best black garlic around!
Texas Black Gold Garlic is 100% natural. It’s a true Vegan product because it is certified organic, meaning it has been grown without fertilizer or pesticides. It has been Certified Kosher, is non-GMO and is vegetarian friendly. And, best of all, it is made in the USA.
