A dried or dehydrated form of garlic that has been sliced into flakes or minced bits to be used as a cooking and flavoring ingredient. Also referred to as instant garlic, this form is often used in soups, sauces, and stews where it is reconstituted into very small pieces of garlic, adding the distinctive garlic flavor but not necessarily the texture. 1/2 teaspoon of garlic flakes equals 1 clove of garlic or 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder.
Garlic has various nutrients, such as C and B vitamins, which help the organism to digest well, quick, calm pains, accelerate the metabolism, and tone the body. Garlic is better to be consumed fresh, but garlic flakes also keep these valuable nutrients that generally provide good health for the organism.
Garlic flakes are used in various recipes, such as soups, sauces, stews, or as a seasoning for meat dishes. Basically, garlic flakes are used instead of garlic, in meals that require only the same flavor, but not the same texture as the one belonging to the fresh garlic.
