|Store garlic in a cool, dark, dry place with good air circulation. Check on it occasionally, and remove any cloves that have gone bad, being careful not to nick the remaining cloves.|
|As we believe in providing quality products that are close to nature, we conduct various stringent quality tests under the supervision of the experts. These tests are performed with due care from the very initial stage of procurement of the products to the final stage of delivery to the end users.|
|For best results, fresh garlic or preparations that mimic it need to be used. Dried or cooked garlic, as well as garlic oil, lose a significant amount of potency during processing (though they aren’t worthless and are still beneficial to eat as food). Preparations used for medicinal purposes should state that they have allicin potential of at least 6,000 mcg on the label. Alternately, eat one chopped clove of fresh garlic per day. (The fresh garlic that has been peeled and sometimes minced and sold in jars in the grocery store is not potent enough.)
Good quality garlic supplements list the “allicin potential” they contain and not a certain amount of allicin. This means that when the supplement gets to the stomach, it releases 6,000 mcg of allicin, the pungent chemical that accounts for garlic’s sharp flavor. The supplements do not contain actual allicin, because this compound is extremely unstable and quickly breaks down. Instead, good garlic supplements contain alliin, the stable precursor to allicin. It is released only upon digestion, so your body can make the best use of it.

Garlic can be eaten uncooked or cooked. Small and large, whether uncooked or cooked, garlic comprises the necessary foundation for a lot of preparations, ranging from a meager cold condiment to a complicated hot sauce. A garlic clove can be used as a whole, severed into pieces, sliced thin, or finely chopped. It depends on how obvious one wants its occurrence to be in the cooked dish. The rule of the thumb is that the better the garlic is chopped and the darker it is permitted to be in the process of cooking, the sharper flavor it will give. Hence, judicious use of garlic is advised.
