ABG+ Aged Black Garlic moves Into gummies space
In response to growing supplement and food trends, Madrid-headquartered Pharmactive Biotech Products, S.L.U. is introducing Aged Black Garlic+ (ABG+), with a sweet, “social” flavour that is odour-free and so suitable for functional gummies. The science-backed ingredient delivers wellness benefits and won’t stimulate reflux the way fresh garlic can. Grown from a special variety of garlic, and cultivated just two hours from Pharmactive’s facility, it is gently processed using green technology. This method generates very low waste and significantly reduces the environmental impact.
“Aged black garlic develops a distinctive sweet flavour during ageing, while losing its typical garlic flavour and aroma due to allicin degradation,” explains Daniel Gonzalez-Hedström, Ph.D., senior scientific researcher for Pharmactive. “This allows it to be easily included in various formulations, easily masking with fruit or other flavors any slight garlic notes that might remain.”
