Made with flavorful garlic from China, this Garlic Powder is an excellent substitute for fresh cloves. Garlic powder has a finer texture than granulated garlic. This means that garlic powder releases flavor faster than granulated garlic, making it better for recipes with short cooking times. Garlic powder is also more potent than granulated garlic. A quarter teaspoon of garlic powder 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.
