Garlic Powder—A Tale of Vampires, Mosquitoes and Angel Hair

Allium sativum, the divine essence, the stinking rose—it has many names but one distinctive taste. Garlic is the cornerstone of so many dishes and is one of the oldest known species of cultivated plants. It was found in King Tut's tomb, revered by the Romans and author Bram Stoker gets credit for propagating the notion that it wards off vampires. 

While garlic is grown year-round in mild climates all around the world, Spice Islands® garlic is harvested at the peak of its flavor from the sun-drenched hills of California. Then our artisans lovingly process it into a fine powder that is perfect for soups, sauces and a host of other dishes. In fact, our garlic powder is so bursting with goodness that just ¼ teaspoon delivers the flavor of a whole clove. 

Oh, about the whole wards-off-vampires thing: Although historians claim it to be a metaphor for its supposed ability to repel mosquitoes, we can't confirm or deny it either, so it's best to play it safe and eat lots of garlic in all its forms.
