ABG+® is a Nutraingredients-Awards finalist
Proprietary ageing process
ABG+® is produced via a Maillard reaction through Pharmactive´s proprietary process. It consists of controlled temperature and relative humidity, which eliminates the unpleasant garlic sensorial characteristics while, increasing the content in bioactive compounds.
The resulting black garlic bulbs are used to produce a unique black garlic extract, with reported cardioprotective effect*.
There are no additives, preservatives, or burning of any kind during the process.
We cultivate garlic in our own fields located in Castilla la Mancha, using traditional growth and harvesting methods.
The key to obtain ABG+® unique features is to gather them exactly when the concentration of SAC is higher in the bulb*.
Our ABG+® comes from a unique kind of garlic, which provides with better organoleptic properties than regular white garlic*.
Finalist NutraIngredients Awards
ABG+® has been recognized as a finalist of Ingredient of the Year for Weight Management, at The NutraIngredients Asia Awards, 2019.
ABG+® use is recommended to be combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
