Lovely to be showcased in such a vibrant store - Jaggers at Central Markets Adelaide. Had the pleasure of meeting the Jagger's team when passing through on holidays and could see what a great match our black garlic would be with their wide ranging gourmet food. Look forward to good times together!
The Happy Apple looks like our kind of business with common values: "we are passionate about quality food and great customer service".

How might black garlic be healthy as well as taste great? The recognition of the health benefits of black garlic is growing. Remember we make no specific health claims for black garlic and supply this information for interest only!
In one study, sixty volunteers were either given black garlic or a placebo twice a day for 12 weeks. The researchers found that the group taking black garlic saw a significant increase in high-density lipoproteins (“good” cholesterol) potentially reducing a significant cardiovascular disease risk factor (1). So how much did they eat? Those eating black garlic ate 6 grams per day - this is a very achievable one average clove per day. We have customers who buy 100g tubs of unpeeled cloves regularly and eat one clove each morning - remember the no garlic breath promise means you can have black garlic for breakfast.
Rat studies have shown black garlic administration was associated with lower lipoprotein levels, cholesterol and triglycerides and lower weight gain (in rats given a high fat diet) (2).
Black garlic provides powerful antioxidants that improve arterial elasticity and lower blood pressure, as well as improving cholesterol balance. This makes black garlic a popular natural strategy for managing healthy blood pressure (3).
These studies support the role of black garlic as a "functional food". This is a food substance that has a positive health benefit. Cardiovascular risk factors are common among the community and here is a tasty well tolerated food to help boost your health.

Celebrate with us - Jenny's twin sons Tom and Josh turn 21 on 30th June. We thought it would be fun to offer a sale on our TWIN pack to all our terrific customers to celebrate. Both boys have made a positive contribution to our business and we wish them all the very best for such a special birthday. They remain gorgeous but thought we would go with a cute photo from the old days.

Thanks to Diana and team at the Atherton Supa IGA for ranging our black garlic offerings. Not only can you get great beef from the Atherton ranges but beautiful black garlic to spread on the steak as it comes off the barbecue. Don't be fooled - this is a prestigious retailer who previously have won the IGA Australia International Retailer of the Year Award at the IGA Global Rally in Vancouver, Canada. What a great result!
Thanks to the team at Gifts on Q for stocking our luscious black garlic. This is an initiative of our regional council QPRC to offer great local products from across the region. Enjoyed a fabulous fashion parade from Debbie Maree in Crawford St Queanbeyan where we offered tastings to a great audience, introducing them to the joys of black garlic. Come and see the range at Gifts on Q!
Lovely to meet Joel at Mis en Place and taste his fabulous spit roast pork. Turned out he was also a fan of black garlic and now stocks our cloves and powder. See them at Rose Bar and Rosebery. Remember one clove of black garlic spread neat across a steak as it comes off the barbecue is heavenly.
Thanks to all at The Pines Health Foods Elanora for taking on our high antioxidant black garlic range. Great to see our Queensland health food store presence grow.
Fascinating Consumer Reports on Eating Share Trends (CREST) from NPD Group warms our hearts, confirming black garlic is right on trend. Millennials apparently are leading the charge into more healthy eating. Now this is not just low fat or low calories, but a search for clean eating with transparent ingredients.
"Interestingly, Australian owned and grown is seen as most important to the millennial generation when considering healthy eating (36%), followed by locally grown (31%) and no additives or preservatives (24%)."
In 2017, healthy eating consumption was 14% of food service traffic with $5.8 billion and 644 million visits! This has created a "healthy indulgence" category in food service. Other report highlights were the growth in online meal ordering with order volumes doubling in 5 years.
“Providing easy access to healthier meals made with high quality, local ingredients steering away from ‘low-fat and low calorie’ options are a ‘must have’ for the most health-conscious generation of Australians. These health-lead, quality assured meals and snacks can no longer be an option in foodservice, but a ‘need-to-have’ offering within the industry,” says Gimantha Jayasinghe, NPD Deputy Managing Director. “Foodservice operators seeking to gain more visits and grow their bottom line should carefully consider their offerings to attract the most health-conscious generation.”
