Garlic powder

What is garlic powder? About the ingredient garlic powder. Including 1,399 recipes with garlic powder, nutrition data, and where to find it.


Garlic powder is dried garlic that has been finely diced to create a powdered form. It should not be confused with garlic salt, which is a combination of garlic powder and table salt. You’ll find garlic powder in the spice section, and some cooks advocate using it in place of fresh garlic.

Other cooks like the taste of garlic powder but find that the taste is different than fresh garlic, not as sharp and somewhat sweeter. If you’re out of fresh garlic, a powdered form can be a good substitute though the taste may be slightly different.

People may really enjoy using garlic powder because of its garlicky taste. If you’re on a low sodium diet, you can really benefit from this seasoning.

Since it contains only a trace amount of natural sodium, you can use garlic powder liberally without being concerned about adding extra salt to your diet.

It doesn’t always blend well if you want a smooth mix of ingredients. You might try garlic juice instead if you don’t want little tiny flakes of garlic in a dish.
