Black garlic extract

Black garlic is a culinary delicacy that has been enjoyed for centuries, particularly in India and other Asian countries such as Thailand, South Korea, and Japan. Aged black garlic extract serves both functional food applications and the culinary market. Under the brand ABG10+, the extract is obtained from fresh garlic (Allium Sativum L.) that has been aged, a process which alters the physiochemical properties of garlic resulting in profoundly enhanced antioxidant and cardioprotective properties. It's also standardized to a higher concentration of the bioactive compound S-allyl cysteine (SAC) than standard black garlic. SAC is a water-soluble bioactive compound acclaimed for its high antioxidant capacity and its cardiovascular benefits, as supported by multiple clinical trials. Pharmactive Biotech Products

Newest super grain from Africa

Fonio is an ancient super grain from West Africa and has never been supplied to scale in the U.S. before now. The harvesting, hulling, and cleaning process is meticulous and time-consuming, only having been done by hand before. It used to take 90 women, working full-time two straight weeks to fill a single container with fonio. Due to the grain size being similar to a single grain of sand, it was very difficult to pick out each individual grain from the dirt and sand it was harvested from. Terra Ingredients

Non-GMO gelling starch for candies

Thingum 107NG is a new gelling starch made from non-GMO dent corn, one of two new non-GMO texturants added to the vendor's Non-GMO Project Verified ingredient solutions. These maize starches offer low heat viscosity and can be used to develop specific textures in confectionery products, such as gum sweets and jellies. The starch is available with different fluidity profiles ñ for soft or hard bites, or long or short textures in the mouth. Its higher degree of thinning means gums can be deposited at higher solids, decreasing drying time when compared to other starches. Tate & Lyle
