Description

A superfood powerhouse in the kitchen and an essential ingredient – garlic, alongside onions, form the basis of many dishes. Chopped or crushed and fried – add to stews, soups, sauces, stir fry or simply use raw for its medicinal properties.

It has been highly valued as a culinary spice through out the ages and its usage predates written history. It has been used as a remedy by the ancient Egyptians and was used during WWI to treat wounds due to its anti-septic properties.

* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.

Health benefits

Garlic is an excellent source of vitamin B6. It is also a very good source of manganese, selenium and vitamin C. In addition, garlic is a good source of other minerals, including phosphorous, calcium, potassium, iron and copper. The therapeutic effects of garlic are thought to be due to its active ingredient allicin, which is further stimulated when chopped or crushed. Garlic has a long history of use as an infection fighter – against viruses, bacteria and fungi, has the potential to reduce heart disease, cholesterol levels and cancer. Most potent when eaten raw.
