Description

Organic Garlic Powder adds instant flavour.

Organic Garlic Powder is simply made from fresh organic garlic cloves which are dried and ground down.  It tastes like garlic but has a slightly different tang to the fresh cloves and it blends easily.  This light yellow powder is a great addition to soups, stews and homemade seasonings.

If you love garlic then you will probably always have a good supply of fresh garlic at all times.  Although fresh garlic is wonderfully pungent and strong, it is sometimes time consuming to prepare and it doesn’t blend well into some textures.  Organic garlic powder still has a powerful kick and dry rubs into flour, blends easily into gravies and doesn’t burn quickly when used as a topping (e.g. garlic bread).  Powdered garlic is also useful when making quick dips as you can get an even flavour.

As well as being a great addition to lots of easy meals, organic garlic powder is rich in nutrients.  It is high in selenium, an important nutrient which contributes to normal thyroid function, immune system function and the maintenance of normal nails and hair.  It is also particularly high in B6 which contributes to normal functioning of the immune system, hormone function and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Nutritional Information

The Nutritional Benefits of Organic Garlic Powder.

Organic Garlic Powder is high in Protein, Vitamin C, Thiamin, Vitamin B6, Phosphorus, Potassium and Selenium. It is a source of Iron, Zinc and Manganese.

Protein: Plant based protein is abundant in many whole foods. We all know we need protein because it contributes to a growth in muscle mass but did you know it contributes to the maintenance of normal bones? This makes it essential for adults and children.

Vitamin B6: This important nutrient contributes to normal functioning of the immune system, physiological function, immune system function, hormone function and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Vitamin C: This well known nutrient contributes to normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise and is necessary for normal collagen formation. It is also essential to normal functioning of the immune system and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Manganese: This vital nutrient contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, formation of connective tissue and the protection of cells from oxidative stress.

Potassium: This essential nutrient contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, muscle function and the normal maintenance of blood pressure.

Zinc:  This nutrient contributes to normal function of the immune system, DNA synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism.  It is also needed for cognitive function, fertility and reproduction.

Selenium: This is an important nutrient which is present in a lot of whole foods, particularly brazil nuts. It contributes to normal thyroid function, immune system function, maintenance of normal nails and hair. Additionally it protects cells from oxidative stress and contributes to spermatogenesis which is why it is linked to fertility.

Iron: It is vital to get enough iron and many whole foods contain high levels of it. Iron contributes to normal cognitive function, immune system function, reduction of tiredness, energy-yielding metabolism, formation of red blood cells, transportation of oxygen and cell division.

Phosphorus: This abundant mineral contributes to energy-yielding metabolism, function of cell membranes and the maintenance of bones and teeth.
