Authentic black garlic

It was in Japan, in the Aomori region, that black garlic was born. An ancestral know-how, now recognized throughout the world, which allows garlic to be transformed into an exceptional product: black garlic. A unique manufacturing process respecting Japanese tradition made with PGI white garlic from Drôme.

The virtues of black garlic


Black garlic is recognized as a “superfood” meaning it is 100% natural with high nutritional value providing numerous health benefits. Rich in vitamins and minerals and thanks to its fermentation, black garlic becomes tender, digestible, slightly sweet and sour, reminiscent of caramelized balsamic vinegar.

Ripening of black garlic

Once sorted, the garlic heads are then placed for 30 days in a special and unique oven at low temperature. During this maturation phase, the sugars naturally contained in white garlic caramelize and give the cloves this black color.


Refining black garlic

At the end of maturation, a refining time is necessary. This step allows the black garlic to concentrate all its aromas and reveal its character: aromatic notes of undergrowth, licorice, balsamic and candied fruits. A delicious flavor that in Japan is called “umami”.

Gourmet pairings

Black garlic can be used in many ways in cooking to add a unique, sweet flavor to your dishes. Here are some ideas for using it:
