- The main ingredient of the Suka Pinakurat™®© is fermented coconut sap locally known as “sukang tuba” and bird’s eye chilies “labuyo” that are harvested from the wild mountains of Iligan, Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur and Misamis Oriental. These key ingredients are organically grown, with the chilies being farmed by mother nature. Other ingredients are spices such as Garlic, Onion, Ginger, and Sweet Peppers.

- The answer really is, Why Not?
Prior to our usage of the word Pinakurat™®©, there has been no association with such word and the product spiced vinegar.
The word “Pinakurat™®©” is a derivative from a Cebuano Dialect “Kurat” which means shocked, frightened or surprised. 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.
Suka Pinakurat™®© was coined after a dish known only in población Iligan City. This dish is called “Baboy Sulop Pinakurat/ Pinakuratan”. This dish involved wild boar meat blanched into a boiling (but removed from fire) concoction of spices and Calamansi, making the meat half-cooked. The dish had no Vinegar in it. The two are very different things.
- Suka Pinakurat™®© has no meat in it. It was only coined after a very local dish that contained meat.
- None at all. It has no meaning as with regard to the product. “Kurat” means “surprise”, which can be attributed to persons and not things such as vinegar.
- Suka Pinakurat™®© and the rest of the vinegar line is available at leading supermarkets nationwide. Kindly see the “store locator” found on the menu of the website.
- For the Suka Pinakurat™®© vinegar line, we have contractual agreements with Distributors. The distributors sell to the supermarkets. We do not engage with wholesalers, sellers or resellers.
