Made with flavorful garlic from China, this Granulated Garlic is the best substitute for fresh cloves. Granulated garlic has a coarser texture than garlic powder, meaning it is less likely to clump when combined with liquids or other spices. Half a teaspoon of granulated garlic is equivalent to one fresh garlic clove.
People have used garlic in cooking and as a medicine for so long that no one is actually sure where the plant first originated. However, garlic is known to have been used in ancient Egypt approximately 5,000 years ago, and it was an important source of nutrition for the slaves and workers of the ancient Mediterranean empires. Garlic is still used for health reasons today, as it has antibiotic, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. Consuming garlic regularly can help prevent common colds and flu.
