Organic Garlic Powder: Staple Spice for Every Kitchen
Garlic is native to Central Asia but it has been spreading all over the planet for thousands of years and today it’s a staple seasoning for most cultures. Organic Garlic powder can make any savory dish taste better, especially if it contains legumes and starchy veggies. This flavoring is also very good for you and highly nutritious. Food To Live Organic Garlic will help you make culinary masterpieces with ease.
The Many Uses of Organic Garlic Cloves
People have been using garlic for millennia and came up with a huge list of applications for it. The most common of them are:
· Garlic salad dressing.
You definitely should try making some as it can make any salad special.
· Organic garlic salt.
This type of salt tastes better due to the addition of the seasoning. However, if you want to make your diet healthier, use organic garlic powder instead of salt to reduce the intake of sodium.
· Organic garlic oil.
Use it when baking bread or as a seasoning for salads.
· Organic garlic juice.
Some people take it as a dietary supplement but you can include it in sauces and other recipes.
· Organic garlic butter.
Infuse your regular butter with some organic garlic granules or powder to make it more delicious.
· Organic garlic pills.
These supplements are getting more popular today, but a real plant is definitely superior to them.
There is some odorless garlic available today, but where is the fun in using this product as the aroma of the spice is what makes it so amazing.

How to Grow Organic Garlic Bulbs
Organic garlic powder is an extremely versatile cooking ingredient, but if you want to enjoy all possible uses and benefits of the plant, you’ll also need some fresh garlic cloves. You can grow them yourself easily. Just buy a few garlic bulbs and store them in a cool dark place until they start to sprout green stalks. Then, separate the cloves carefully and plant each into a small flowerpot. The plant needs lots of sun and moderate watering.
Organic Garlic Benefits in Every Form
Organic Garlic is extremely beneficial for one’s general wellbeing and can enhance your diet. This product is rich in essential nutrients but has very few calories. However, you must eat it in moderation, as overeating will be hard on your body. It’s the same for all spices and seasonings.
Nutrition-wise, organic garlic powder contains:
- · Selenium;
- · Manganese;

- · Vitamin C.
It also has trace amounts of other essential minerals, including calcium, iron, and copper

Does Garlic Lower Blood Pressure?
The research into the effect of organic garlic on blood pressure is ongoing and it seems quite promising. However, so far there isn’t enough evidence to make any substantial claims about its pressure-lowering effects.
Is Clove Garlic Safe for Cats and Dogs?
When it comes to garlic, dogs and cats are in great danger, so you must never give this product to your pets. All plants in the Allium family (leeks, onions, chives, and garlic) are toxic to cats and dogs. The poisoning symptoms might range from mild oral irritation to collapse, weakness, and vomiting.
Please bear in mind that when poisoned by garlic, dogs and cats might have a delayed reaction. This means that it would be harder for you to determine the reason of their condition. Cats are more susceptible to the detrimental effects of this food.
Organic Garlic Powder Vs. Supplements
Due to the abundance of organic garlic benefits and its high nutritional value, people created a supplement from the extract of this plant. The question is whether taking these products is better than eating the actual food.
The truth is that organic garlic supplements don’t offer any superior benefits. On the contrary, as these products aren’t regulated by the FDA, they might be either inefficient or outright harmful. There have been some reported incidents of dietary supplements’ content being different from the one listed on their labels. Therefore, you can’t be 100% sure that the organic garlic capsules you buy really have the plant’s extract in them.
Organic garlic powder, on the other hand, is exactly what it claims to be. One sniff will be enough to verify this fact. You’ll be able to notice any additives to the product by a change in flavor and complain about this right away.
In addition, you should remember that a garlic supplement is bound to be less effective than the actual plant. No matter how good it is, the process of its making destroys the unstable compounds that make garlic beneficial for your wellbeing.
It will also be much less enjoyable to consume because you can’t flavor your salad dressing with organic garlic pills.
Cooking with Organic Garlic Powder, Cloves, and Oil
The first thing you need to learn about garlic in that it tastes different depending on the way it’s processed and prepared. Therefore, organic garlic powder isn’t a 100% suitable substitute for raw or dried garlic cloves in some recipes. However, this product can be included in any product to give it this unique and mouthwatering aroma.
The only recipes where powdered or granulated garlic can’t be used as a full substitute are those that call for the actual cloves. For example, you can’t make roasted or pickled garlic with powder.
Although, if you employ some culinary creativity, you’ll be able to expand your list of garlic dishes that use powder. For example, instead of garlic paste, you can make bean paste and flavor it with this delicious spice. The same with garlic hummus, butter, and oil.
Overall, using organic garlic powder or granules for cooking is much more convenient as they don’t need any special prep. Considering that minced garlic doesn’t keep well and loses its nutritional value extremely fast, dry spices are the best way to go.
Cooking with Food To Live Organic Garlic is extremely easy. In general, any garlic and herb seasoning goes well with the majority of salads, meats, legumes, and can even be used as a dip for bread. You can tweak the taste by changing herb and spice mixes. For example, try making some chili garlic sauce if you want to your dish to be extremely hot and flavorful.
A garlic and wine seasoning, on the other hand, will go well with chicken and fresh vegetable salads. If the wine is red, it’ll be a good choice for beef or stews with starchy vegetables.
Be careful if you chose to use garlic oil for cooking as you’ll need to get a hang of this ingredient to understand how it affects the taste of products. It enhances the aroma of the dish, but it also affects the flavor. Therefore, you should learn how it ‘interacts’ with different products.
A simple garlic butter spread can turn your sandwich into a special meal. If you make it yourself, you’ll be able to control the intensity of the flavor and ensure it suits your personal taste perfectly.
Minced garlic, dried or otherwise, is a universal ingredient for any savory dish. It’s a definite ‘must-have’ for a chili, curry, or a vegan stew. Although, you shouldn’t forget that the flavor might be more potent when you use powdered or granulated garlic. When substituting, use 1/8 teaspoon organic garlic powder per 1 clove.
Making some spicy garlic oil will allow you to enhance the taste of your breads. Covering the dough with this simple seasoning before baking will also ensure that your kitchen fills with a mouthwatering aroma while you wait for the delicious hot bread. As garlic is a staple product for the majority of European and Asian cuisines, each nation has their own special recipe for garlic bread.
100% Vegan & Gluten-Free Organic Garlic Bread Recipe
Ingredients for dough:
- · 2 cups gluten-free flour (try mixing 6 cups of rice flour with 2 cups potato starch and ½ cup each corn and tapioca starch)
- · 2 teaspoons baking powder
- · 1 ½ cups sparkling water
- · 2 tablespoons olive oil
- · ½ teaspoon sea salt
- · 1 tablespoon honey
- · 1 teaspoon organic garlic powder (or more to taste)
- · 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- · 1 teaspoon dried basil
- · ¼ teaspoon chili pepper
- · ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- · 2 tablespoons olive oil
1. Mix the garlic oil ingredients first and set it aside while you start working on the bread. You can pre-heat the oven to 450F at the same time.
2. Sift together all dry ingredients for the dough. Then, gradually add sparkling water, honey, and oil while mixing thoroughly.
3. Pour the batter onto an oiled baking sheet and flatten it out with a spatula.
4. Cover the dough with oil. Use a brush to ensure smooth and even covering.
5. Have fun poking tiny indents into the dough with your finger. They should be about 1 inch apart.
6. Bake your garlic bread for about 20 minutes and be sure to rotate it midway so that it bakes through evenly. The focaccia is ready when it turns beautifully golden.
Always allow focaccia to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting and serving, but it tastes best while still fresh and warm. Serve it with pesto sauce or plain olive oil for dipping.
How to Store Organic Garlic Powder for Maximum Shelf Life
One of the reasons why garlic is such an amazing food is that it keeps for a very long time. It’s one of the most economic spices and doesn’t require any special care or even an airtight container. Fresh garlic can keep for 3-6 months on the counter, but only if it’s whole as cloves (unpeeled) last for 2 months max.
Please note that fresh chopped or minced garlic can last only about a week in the fridge or up to a week if kept in a jar with olive oil. However, its nutritional value diminishes greatly and all the chemicals that make it so good for you evaporate within the first few hours.
On the other hand, you can search for powdered organic garlic for sale in bulk, because this product keeps extremely well. You don’t even have to put it in the fridge as the shelf-life of the product is nearly indefinite.
However, like all powdered or granulated foods, organic garlic powder will start losing its nutritional value eventually. Considering how many interesting culinary uses it has, you’ll definitely finish even a bulk pack before this happens.
Always keep your garlic bulbs, cloves, or powder dry as moisture ruins the latter and can cause plants to go moldy.
Store your Food To Live Organic Garlic in an airtight container away from foods that can absorb its aroma.
