So, what is cork?

Cork is a versatile and natural material that has been used for centuries in various applications, including as a food ingredient. It is derived from the bark of cork oak trees, which are primarily found in Mediterranean countries. Cork is lightweight, impermeable to water and gases, and resistant to wear and tear, making it an ideal choice for sealing bottles and preserving food freshness. In the food industry, cork is commonly used to stopper wine bottles, but it can also be finely ground and incorporated into certain dishes as a natural thickening agent. With its sustainable and eco-friendly qualities, cork is a popular choice for those seeking environmentally conscious solutions.
