Garlic has been used as food and medicine for thousands of years, particularly in China, Egypt and Greece. As the properties of this herb became known throughout 17th century Europe, garlic was commonly infused in wine as a preventative tonic to the plague. During World Wars I and II, field physicians used garlic internally and externally on soldiers to fight infection and gangrene.

Garlic powder provides an easy way to enjoy the taste of garlic in food, or the powder can be encapsulated for use as a dietary supplement.

Powdered garlic is the dehydrated, ground cloves that make up a head of garlic. While there’s nothing like the real thing, garlic powder is convenient to use, has a long storage life and adds a sweet-spicy note to foods.
