About Garlic Powder
Our garlic powder is made from California garlic — arguably the most flavorful garlic in the world. This pure dehydrated garlic contains no preservatives or anti-caking agents. Garlic powder has a strong flavor that is pungent and a bit spicy.
Garlic powder can be used to enhance almost any savory dish — from sauces, marinades, and soups, to dry-rubs. Home cooks turn to garlic powder when they need the flavor without the texture of garlic cloves.
We believe that when it’s possible, fresh garlic is almost always the best option. That being said, there are situations where garlic powder is a very useful tool. For instance, garlic powder won’t make your home (or your breath) stink for hours. For dry rubs, garlic powder definitely works better. Most of all, it’s nice to have on hand when you’ve started with fresh garlic and in the eleventh hour, you realize that your dish still needs just a bit more — it’s much easier to add an extra sprinkle of garlic powder than it is to cook more cloves.
Fresh garlic to garlic powder: a good rule to follow — use ⅛ teaspoon of garlic powder for every 1 fresh garlic clove the recipe calls for. Dehydrated ingredients have a concentrated flavor, so less is needed to achieve your result.
