The word “Kurat™®©” is not germane or related to the product “Vinegar”, “and thus was allowed registration by the Intellectual Property Office as a Trademark in favor of Reinard Donn Stuart del Rosario. In 2008, trademark ownership was transferred to Green Gold Gourmet Foods Inc.
Its name came from a Cebuano metaphor meaning “no fear”. It is distinguished from its more popular stablemate, Suka Pinakurat™®©, in that Waykurat™®© has no capsicum content in its spices. It was marketed as an alternative to Suka Pinakurat™®© for consumers who could not stand the heat of Capsicum.
