The Story of DEFU, a specialist in garlic, and the owner of the BLACK GOLD brand, is closely associated with the values and personality of her two founders Aileen and Mr Kee.
In 1990 they ventured into the business of fresh garlic after noticing how tough it was for kitchen workers to peel and chop garlic to prepare meals. It was this concern and care for kitchen workers that led to their first market breakthrough. Fresh Chopped Garlic.
DEFU’s high quality Fresh Chopped Garlic from Cangshan endeared her to the food industry, especially kitchen workers and managers, and created for her contacts that benefit the company till today. Aileen and Mr Kee’s epicurean curiosity and love for learning led them to digest extensive knowledge about Garlic. They were fascinated to find that Garlic is a superfood; there is wealth of evidence in books and in the internet that Garlic boost the immune system and contains antioxidants that neutralize the body’s free radicals. Garlic also helps detoxify the bloodstream, lower blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Even better, though, is that the process of chopping garlic releases a few more active agents like Allicin. When garlic is chopped a range of diallyl sulfides are released; these help to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol as well as triglycerides in the body.
