Comparing Granulated Garlic and Garlic Powder


Comparing Granulated Garlic and Garlic Powder

Garlic is one of the essential secret ingredients in many recipes. If you’re a top chef, food manufacturer or starting a restaurant it is highly likely that you will choose the best garlic for your signature dish. Garlic is very versatile, easy to use, and absolutely delicious. It also has many medicinal properties. It combats illness such as the common cold and can be used as an anti-fatigue agent. There are several forms of garlic: fresh garlic, granulated garlic, garlic powder, garlic salt and minced garlic. In this post we are going to explore the differences between granulated garlic and garlic powder.

Granulated garlic and garlic powder have two different textures and granule sizes, both are made of garlic that has been dehydrated, chopped and ground. Granulated garlic has a coarse texture, similar to cornmeal and garlic powder has a fine texture similar to flour. Garlic powder is very concentrated, potent and dense. We recommend using ground garlic when you want the flavor to be fully diffused into whatever you are cooking. Granulated garlic is more airy in volume. A teaspoon of garlic powder is equivalent to two teaspoons of granulated garlic.

Granulated garlic is coarsely ground dried garlic made into a sand-like consistency. To make granulated garlic you must dry out fresh garlic cloves using an oven. Next the garlic cloves are ground into granules using a spice grinder. Granulated garlic is commonly used in dry meat rubs, stir-frys, salad dressings, soups, stews and sauces because it distributes well and adds garlic flavor without adding any extra moisture.

Garlic powder, commonly known as ground garlic, is dehydrated garlic that has been pulverized and turned into a powder. To make garlic powder, you take garlic cloves and place them into a dehydrator or oven until they appear dried. Next they are ground in a food processor or grinder. If you are looking for an intense garlic flavor, you will want to add garlic powder to your recipe. Sprinkle garlic powder on top of popcorn, into scrambled eggs and add it to ground meats for bold flavor.
