  3. Nag start po kami mag distilled ng Lambanog from coconut sap pero hindi naihiwalay yung bating o yung unang patak. may paraan pa po ba para maihiwalay itong bating. Pwede po bang lutuin ulit itong lambanog para maihiwalay itong bating. Thank you po

    1. methanol evaporates at 64.7 °C while ethanol at 78.37 °C. In theory if you want to collect the first, you have to start the condensation process at that point and stop at 78. On the other hand if you want to eliminate the methanol instead, start collecting the condensed liquid at 78.37 C. Both alcohols are colorless. It is recommended to have your alcohol product tested before letting your costumer consume it.

    1. I am very sorry for the inconvenience. Follow this link to get the recipe. Basically, grape and all fruit follow the same procedures.

      The metabisulfite can be bought online as Campden Tablets.

      Do not heat your wine at any stage if you wanna preserve delicate flavors. The metabisulfite is enough to do that. Don’t worry either about this preservative. It will degrade all during fermentation – as long as you don’t add too much.

      Get Lalvin as your wine yeast..

      Good luck my friend…Hope you can give me feedback of your progress.

  4. Hello!

    I read your insightful article on Cashew Wine. I am working on a project in the EU and would love to get in touch with you to have a more private discussion on this matter and mutually beneficial opportunities. Please share your email/phone (anything you’re comfortable with sharing) on

    I know you must be busy but I really wish to hear back from you! Connecting to such intellectual and well-experienced people like you is always a blessing.


  5. I thought you would like to know you misspelled the word “accross”. Silly mistakes are a pet peeve of mine and they can ruin your website’s credibility. In the past I’ve used a tool like to keep mistakes off my website.

  6. Where can I source white vinegar for cleaning and laundry. I’m trying to get away from chemicals. Can I just use glacial acetic acid and dilute to 50ml to a liter of water

  7. Regarding Malabar Spinache: I am certain someone must have mentioned that it is very tasty and pleasant as a salad or partial salad additive. I used to eat this regularly in the summer and never noticed a harsh, bitter or too strong flavor. My Rule of Thumb for summer veggies is that “the older the plant…the stronger the flavor” and sometimes the fruits texture.

  8. Hi, I read one of your posts about chico being a good starter. We have a chico tree and we are hoping to make wine from its fruit.Could you give us a guide on how to do it? Thank you

    1. Hello..

      Just follow any standard procedure for wine making in this website (mango wine perhaps). Replace the wine yeast with overripe and nearly rotten chico (in making starter section).

  15. Hi Marvin

    Tungkol ito sa paggawa ng Calamansi Jelly. Ngayon ko lang po nalaman na kailangan hugasan ang buto ng calamansi at isama ang pinaghugasan sa pagluluto ng jelly. Tama po ba ang pagkakaintindi ko? Anyway po, alin po ba ang tinutukoy nyong “pectin extract” dito sa procedure na ito? Ito na po ba yung pinaghugasan ng buto o another ingredient po ba ito na kailangang bilhin?

    1. Hello! The pectin extract I am referring to is a separate product, usually in powder form. Expect a bit of hard time sourcing, because it is an industrial product. Start asking laboratory chemical suppliers about it.

      As low and easy to source alternative, we are sometimes using seaweed extract in form of Mr. Gulaman. I never know the shelf stability of output though.

  16. hello,
    I’m harold ask Ko lang if gusto nyo mag pa fun run coz I would like to submit our proposal to your good office
    thank you

    1. Good day sir. would like to ask if pwde ba akong magpaggawa ng tablea molder in mass production , bale customized, medyo maliit ng kaunti sa ,yong pinopost.please e mail me so i can give my propose measurement. i really need it. thanks.

      1. Hello! I switched to polycarbonate molds about a year ago. The shape of chocolate bar.

        I think you are referring to round tablet shape tablea that is formed with pulvoron like molder. This process is inefficient and requires a lot of labor.

        If you still want, draw a rough design with measurement on bond paper and bring it to nearby machine shop. Per mold would cost you about 500 to 1000 pesos per piece depending on kind of metal used and craftsmanship.

  17. Hello po, Gusto q lng po sana mgtanong kng may mga supplier kau na alam for Can Sealer at Vacuum Sealer Machine?

    Supplier na din po ng tin cans at vacuum plastic.

    Nais ko po kc sana magsimula ng maliit na business.

    Salamat po sa inyong tulong.

    1. Vacuum sealer? Please try OLX ph. You can find vacuum sealer there for as low as 2,500.

      Can sealer? I think the problem here is not the sealer, its the “can”. They should be purchased in big volume with specific lacquer coating that suits your food commodity. You might find cans in low volumes but their coating is kind unknown to generic.

  20. Hi Mr. Marvin,

    Since I discovered your blog not too long ago, I have become a regular visitor. Thank you for selflessly sharing your knowledge and endeavors to the public through your blog.

    May I request permission to add your blog to It is a blog I am in the process of creating dedicated to explaining the science behind Filipino food and cooking in order to promote science and our own native cuisine.

    I am looking forward to one day getting in touch with you and collaborate with you on a food project.

    Wishing you the best in your effort to create bean to bar Filipino chocolate.


    1. Yep. you may do as you like. I wish you to have great success in the near future.

      If you have extra time and budget, I suggest you buy a domain and rent a hosting service. It is about 600 pesos yearly domain fee and another 600 pesos as monthly hosting bill. Not much I think..

      I had bad experience with blogspot before. They delete my whole alt-blog without notice.

  21. Good morning Marvin,

    I have been hunting the depths of the interwebs for some time now looking for a (Swiss style) cervelat recipe after my family (all Swiss), could not seem to find one for me. This looks the closest I have ever seen. Do you have any details on the origins of the recipe? It seems to have all the key ingredients and lovely, very specific, instructions. I will check back here for your reply or my email. Thank you for this, I will be getting it going this weekend!



  22. Goodevening! I’m from Cavite State University and a Computer Engineering student currently on my thesis..

  24. Hi Sir,

  25. Hi, Sir Marvin.

    I bake. Do you supply chocolate bars for baking. Honestly, I previously use an international brand, but I want to switch to a local supplier.

    Thanks in advance.

    1. we produce pure cacao blocks in half kilos. you still need to adjust it to your needs however. Properties – fine grind, slightly acidic and winey, strong chocolate flavor and readily melts in hot water. We deliver…

  26. Hi Sir Marvin,

    I’m a 4th year BS Food Technology student at Cavite State University. Currently I’m conducting my thesis and I need contact information about Dr. Teddy Tepora. I’ve tried contacting him many times before but unfortunately, I’m unable to reach him. I really need his processing technologies for dragon fruit jam and jelly. I’m hoping for your reply. Thank You!

    1. Jam na lang ang gawin mo wag na ung jelly. Think about it, jelly is processed without pulp. Saan mo naman dadalhin ung pulp.. Itatapon.. sayang. Jelly should be done for citrus family only.

      Dragon fruit jam. Just mix dragon fruit pulp with equivalent amount of sugar. Then boil until 105 degree C. You may add pectin powder if you have budget and source. Pede din ung Mr. Gulaman kung nagtitipid ka. I can’t help you if you need a literated article. I think any published jam recipe would suffice. Pare-pareho lang naman kasi yan.

      About Dr. Teddy. Best way to reach him is by hunting. Puntahan mo sa office.

      Cavite State University? Saan Un? haha!

      1. Ok po. Thank you so much for your advice. I also think that’s the best way. Wala na din naman po akong choice haha. Salamat po talaga.

  27. We require 24 MM (for 200ML PET) & 46 MM (for 600 ML PET) press-seal bottle caps, 50 pieces each.

    I am writing these books to “give back” my knowledge to the next generation of people, all over this world. I am writing these books to educate the people about the advantages of eating “Fresh Fruits” and “Fresh Vegetables” and how they can help themselves to have a healthier body, and the foods that are not good for a healthy body.

    The world is changing and we have to change with it NOW for our kid’s sake.
    This is the 21st Century NOW, and we have to do something about it NOW!
    I am on a movement (mission) of caring and share to help, not to make the same mistake this generation and our pass generations has made, to help them live healthier lives better then we did.
    But I need your help to get this mission (movement) going. I need your permission to let this happen, to use your research in food, to train and educate the people of the world to eat healthier.
    Remember the people will go to your website for more updates. Because you are always updating it, that I cannot do.

  53. Hi, I am currently doing a research about nutrition labels in the Philippines for my graduate studies. I have seen your posts about food label topics here. Sure you have knowledge about food labeling standards in the Philippines. May I ask if there is a certain standard about what should a nutrition/food label should look like? In my review of different local food labels, I have noticed that they do not have same format as with their appearance. I have visited the FDA website to check if there is a regulation/standard on the appearance/format of a nutrition label in the Philippines, but I found none. Thanks.

    1. Nutrition labeling here in the Philippines is optional. It is mandatory in the US, and the format we usually follow is a US format. Looking at US Food Labeling Requirements may help you a lot.

      Design Center of the Philippines, Packaging R&D Center of the Philippines and Philippine Trade Training Center may also help you.

  56. I do have a question about TFS (ECCS) for food cans ;
     Although the Tin Free Steel has strong resistance against corrosion , why it should be lacquered on both sides ?
     If we put the bare TFS (with no lacquer) against model solutions , there will be no attack under sterilization condition but for ETP we will face the corrosion . Also for the lacquered TFS we face failure against model solution . Again the same question ;why TFS should be lacquered?
    (Please note that model solutions are solutions made up of water and organic acid such as acetic acid and salt which together resembling a food product )

  66. Hi,

    I just recently discovered this site as I research on alternative ways to help aid my dad in his liver cancer.

    I just recently purchased 5 kilos of guyabano leaves as I thought of stacking up on the tea. I am currently air drying them but I have a few questions in mind (that has been probably answered in this thread):

    1.) what is the ratio of the leaves to the water if I wanted to make the tea?

    2.) would it be alright to stack up on the tea sya I make 5 gallon batches?

    3.) can I put the air dried leaves in katcha cloth so i can give it to my dad and he can bring it anywhere?

    4.) how would I know if the leaves are still good?

    I am very thankful for this site as I help aid my dad in this battle.

    God bless and looking forward to your replies.



    1. hello vicente, I hope your dad is succeeding in his fight with cancer..were you able to find the answers to your questions? i would like to find the same answers as my husband is diabetic and needs to take two injections of insulin a day.. i am also wondering where were you able to buy that much guyabano leaves? i hope for your reply.. thanks

  67. we would like to contact you for a possible training on ubi food products particularly ubi cookies. how can we reach you? please reply via my email add.
    many thanks.

  68. drinking boiled guyabano leave (as to make g-tea) would it create hyper acidity? is it still safe to drink boiled g-tea?

  69. Thank you for your initiate which I am searching.
    Please suggest me how can I support your regarding this good initiate. I am from Nepal; you may know ginger production in Nepal. Nepal is the one of the largest ginger production country for your information Nepal produce organic ginger (most hills part where ginger produce, there is no supply of chemical fertilizer and chemical pesticide). The production of the ginger is not managed commercially.
    I am interested to start to manage commercially the production of the ginger around my location so I am seeking support on my this interest on any options such as technical support to reproduce of ginger items, marketing of productions, joint productions or other area where you may suggest.

  70. I have just started drinking ionized / alkaline water. Can I use the 9.5 Ph water to make the G-tea? I am also mid ways through a six week course (once per week) of transutheral chemotherapy for re-curring bladder cancer. I have had five transutheral surgeries (stage 2) over the last 4 years. the chemo was used once after each surgery. It is called mitomycin.

    Can I start the tea now, or must I wait until the chemo is finished? I have been on four medications for about eight years; Zoloft, kolonopin, Lipitor, and Ambien.

    Thank you for any advice you might be able to offer.

    1. Hi!
      My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer last October 2012. Since then, I’ve been looking for possible remedies aside from the normal medication. I researched the net and I found your site interesting. In fact my wife started taking the guyabano tea following your procedure.
      Other herbal remedies also amazed me and I started telling friends about your site and the benefits from them.

      I think it is important that people especially those inflicted with illness like cancer should be aware about these remedies considering the high cost of medication. I thought of putting some of your articles and blog (with due recognition of the source) in my networking site FanBox ( to easily reached out to my friends and the general public. Much better, if you contribute directly by registering to FanBox and I will simply link your blog to my friends.

      Wish you all the best, prosperous and healthy New Year!

  73. online at a natural place said that i could kill our bed bugs with cababano leaves. but i find no mention of it on your site. can you explain?


    1. I suggest doing a general house cleaning and contact pest control agency. Maybe the referrer is pointing to guyabano and head lice relationship. Guyabano is effective against cancer but not proven in driving bed bugs away.

      In our locality, the term is known as “hanip”. Coming from mostly from chicken houses. It can be eliminated by any weak insecticides.

  81. Hey sir Marvin!

    I was scavenging the internet today for local food recipes for my project proposal, and discovered your blog! But I’m not bothering you for any advice today. I’m just dropping a comment to tell you that your blog is the miracle God sent me today! :))

  82. Good Day po.

    I just want to ask for help. Me and my partner were thinking for our thesis. but we do not have a title yet. but we are thinking about Cacao. Can you give us any suggestion of a thesis problem about cacao. Thank you

    1. Hi Je-ann! First of all, is your thesis for undergrad or Masteral? Kasi if it is for undergrad you should ask first your adviser if he will allow you to take Experimental Method or Descriptive.

      Sa Experimental you can use Cacao sa Pandisal at kung ano ang health benefit ng Cacao sa tao.

  83. Dear Sir Marvin,

    My Santol Ice Cream Experiment was already approved by our Professor as my Thesis Experimental Method, but he asked me to substitute sugar from any sweeteners that is healthy also for elders most especially for Diabetic people.

    A week ago, i have heard over GMA 7 that their is a plant that can be substitute to sugar, but I forgot the name and also I have read here on Foodrecap about Coco/Nipa Sap can be a substitute to sugar.

    Sir Marvin, can I also use Coco/Nipa Sap for my Santol Ice Cream? How can I get the procedure of doing this Coco/Nipa Sap as a sugar. Please help me on this Sir.

    Thank you and more power.

    1. You can use muscovado sugar from sugar cane or the coco/sugar palm/nipa sugar. They all have low Glycemic Index. Hope your Prof allows you to buy the sugar instead of preparing your own. The muscovado is the easiest find.

      Procedures for processing coco sugar can also be found in this site.

      1. Sir Marvin,

        I just need to include the recipe and procedure in processing the Coco Sugar and I also need to buy a finished product to be use for my experiment.

        Can you give me idea on where to buy Coconut palm/nipa Sugar?

  85. Hej. I did not now when I bought 4 rambutan fruits that you are not supossed to eat the seed in The middle. I ate the first seed of the the first rambutan fruit but I am a litlle worried. After that I red about the fruit and will never eat the seed again. Is the seed dangerous or you have to eat several seads before its dangerous?

    1. It is said that seed coats are poisonous. no recorded seed poisoning cause it is not normally eaten. i am trying to find the lethal amount but cannot find any reference yet. I often accidentally crushed seeds with no observable health effects.

  86. gud am pwede ko b malamn ung number mo? gusto ko kc matuto gumawa nang coconut sugar.. kase i have my own coconut plantation… i’ll just leave my number 091749945three8…

    1. Where is your place? I have several articles about kaong/sugar palm and coconut sugar making and how to harvest good quality sap. Hope those can help you start.
      You need the following:
      1) a good mangangarit – for getting good quality sap.
      2) a hand refractometer – for measuring sap sugar content before boiling, 20Brix is the best but as low as 10Brix is still good
      3) wide cooking vessel / kawa – for boiling the sap, the wider the better.
      4) a candy thermometer – for monitoring the end point of 115 degree centigrade.
      feel free to reach me via text (09155408271) or via email ( or via this contact page. Email is recommended cause I have carrying cellphone.

    2. Ms. Perlita,

      I need your help with regards to Coco Sugar kasi po Im doing my Thesis an Experimental Method my prof told me to use coco sugar instead of using cane sugar coz according to him it is much more healthy.

      Please let me know your place so that I can visit you and have a chat with you regarding the process of doing this coco sugar. Ill send you text message on the number written above.

    Tanong ko po pano po gumawa sa bahay ng barquillos na dagdagan ko ng dragon fruit as flavoring? Mahilig kasi anak ko sa mga pagkaing crispy at may shape na pareho sa french fries.

    Thank you,

    1. I have never tried it yet. You may recipe from other blog.
      A recipe []
      A cooking video []
      The process looks very simple. I wish I have that folding metal sheet!

  88. Sir, do you know where we can order shrink wrap? Im from the National Power Corporation and we,re looking for supplier of shrink wrap for the charcoal briquettes.
    Thanks and regards.

  89. April 12, 2012


    Thank you very much for the reply. Ang hirap po kumain sa fastfoods and restaurants kasi me condition nga anak ko. Recommended sa kanya ang GFCF diet. French fries ang isa sa mga kilala niya na pagkain. Kanin, gulay hindi niya gusto.

    Thank you po uli. Pasensiya na sa abala.



  90. April 10, 2012


    Thank you. I forgot to ask you pala kasi me condition ang anak ko. I am placing him on a gluten free diet. Paano po ang paggawa ng french fries using our indigenous crops na gluten-free as well as cooking oil na gluten free? Any suggestion po is very welcome because puro imported ang nakikita kong gluten free food dito. Mahal. Kaya I am turning to our native rootcrops/tubers to make into fries.

    Thank you.
    Pasensiya na po uli sa abala.

    1. As far as I know ay walang gluten ang french fries, unless na i-dip sya sa gravy or ketchup na may flour as ingredient. Gluten can be found in wheat, barley, rye and triticale. It is present in all bread and cake type and all other foods with flour as ingredient. Check the label carefully to see if flour or wheat, barley, rye and triticale are present. Ask restaurants manager if they are using such.

      Other foods in their pure raw form are gluten free , like mango, camote, potato, ampalaya, rice etc…
      Processed foods are doubtful.
      e.g. a gravy or fishball sauce is gluten free if thickened with cornstarch, not if thickened with flour.
      Flour is sometimes used to bind meat products such as corned beef, patties and siomai.
      All kinds of bread, cakes and the likes contain gluten.
      A gluten-free bread is not a real thing. Gluten is a must in bread making.

      Avoiding any kind of processed food might be easier than sorting out gluten free products.

      I am sorry for the late reply!

  92. I have a question regarding Lup Cheong. I just made some using a recipe from Singapore. It is all organic with no nitrites or nitrates. They hang it out in 65 F temp in the shade to dry for approx 60-90 days. Is there any concern of it rotting or spoiling. Some people say that the meat becomes an enzyme and works as the preservative, so is this anything that I need to worry about. I replaced about half of the pork with wild duck. In 5-1/2 lbs I used 3/4 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of whiskey.

  93. Hello po! Do you know a place where I can buy chitosan?
    Desperada na ako, I’m asking everybody, I need it for my thesis sana po. 🙁

    1. Chitosan? The fat blocker? Ask Mercury Drug. Or secure a paypal account and buy it online e.g from amazon or ebay.

      You can also ask laboratory supply companies to order it for you.

  94. hi

  95. Sir, good afternoon.

    Do you happen to know where to buy pancit pancitan or ulasimang bato? Or do you know any alternative for persistent shoulder pain.

    Thank you.


    1. I am personally using ginger. Slice ginger thinly. Roast slightly over flame, about 20 seconds. Dip in eficascent oil. Then apply to painful area. Use a bandage to hold it over time. The ginger soothing effect last up to 6 hours.. This solution is also temporary until you found the source of pain.

      Shoulder pain possible causes: Wrong sleeping position – thick pillow or curved bed. Too much work. The food eaten – unbalance diet or over consumption of animal fats, softdinks and other artificial foods.

      If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.

  96. Greetings!
