Our Organic Garlic Powder is the dehydrated and powdered equivalent to fresh garlic. While this garlic still packs the pungent aroma and unique taste that has allowed garlic to become a globally loved flavor, this spice tends to be a bit less intense. Which works quite well, as the strong pungent taste of fresh garlic is not appreciated by all, and often times overpowering in dishes that do not allow for extended periods of cooking to mellow out the flavors‰ÛÓfor this reason‰ÛÓour all-natural garlic powder a spice that belongs in every spice cabinet.
There is little historical literature available explaining the origins of garlic powder, though it is suggested that the method has been used to preserve the spice for centuries. While this method was likely first utilized to preserve the beloved spice for extended periods of time, it also gave way to an almost completely new culinary product, with many new application opportunities. For those not in favor of having fresh pungent smelling garlic in their refrigerator, this garlic powder a welcome alternative.
Garlic is known to have been grown in gardens of Babylon where it was known for its powerful health properties used to treat a variety of ailments. This wide application of usage, spread to common populations and was essentially the pharmacy of the poor in ancient times. Garlic powder may lack some of the properties fresh garlic has, but is still an important source of iron, copper, manganese and phosphorus.
