Garlic Minced or Garlic Flakes

Garlic is native to central Asia, but its use spread across the world more than 5000 years ago, before recorded history. It was worshipped by the Egyptians and fed to workers building the Gread Pyramid at Giza, about 2600 BC. Greek athletes ate it to build their strength. Garlic came to the Western Hemisphere with some of the first European explorers, and its use spread rapidly. In the United States it was first cultivated in New Orleans by French settlers. Missionaries brought it to California, where it is grown today.

Minced garlic or garlic flakes can be used to replace fresh garlic when you are out of the fresh or when you need to save time and want to avoid the mess of chopping garlic. Use in pasta sauces, stews, and soups. Mix with oil and vinegar and Italian spices to make salad dressing. One-quarter teaspoon of Minced Garlic or Garlic Flakes is equivalent to one whole garlic clove. Imported from China, Silver Cloud's Minced Garlic is 100.00% pure dehydrated garlic.

More about Garlic

Garlic (Allium sativum) is in the same order, family and genus as onion.   A small, hardy, bulbous perennial plant, it has been used throughout history for both culinary and medicinal purposes.

Garlic's pungent and spicy flavor mellows and sweetens considerably when cooked.  It is almost odorless until it is bruised or cut, at which time an enzymatic reaction occurs that produces allyl disulfide - the chemical that imparts garlic characteristic aroma and flavor.   Like onion, garlic is not usually eaten on its own, but is typically an ingredient used to season meats, poultry, seafood and vegetable dishes.  Garlic is popular in most cultures and is widely used in Indian, Oriental, Mediterranean, Caribbean and Latin American cuisines.  

There are dozens of different varieties of garlic, all of which fall into two basic categories: hard-neck and soft-neck.  Hard-neck garlic (Allium sativum, variety ophioscorodon) has a few large cloves arranged around a firm central stalk. The soft-neck variety (Allium sativum, variety sativum) has rings of cloves with the smaller cloves in the center, and no central stalk. 

While in the United States, the soft neck variety is typically sold in supermarkets; most connoisseurs prefer the flavor of the hard-neck variety.  Hard-neck garlic is described as having a richer, fuller, more complex flavor than the soft-neck variety.  It is also lower in allicin, the compound that makes garlic taste hot.

Garlic's health benefits and medicinal properties have been known for at least two thousand years.  The ancient Romans believed garlic had magical properties and sailors carried cloves of garlic with them to prevent shipwrecks.  Medieval physicians used garlic as a disinfectant and a cure for preventing everything from the common cold and flu to the plague.   As an herbal medicine, garlic has been shown to be an effective treatment for acne and there is some evidence that it can assist in managing high cholesterol levels. 

It is believed garlic originated in Western Asia.  Today, it is cultivated in most parts of the world and grows wild in Egypt, Italy and most of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean basin.  American’s love garlic and consume approximately three pounds per person annually.  While this is three-times the level consumed just a decade ago, it is still a fraction of the twenty pounds per year consumed by Koreans.     

In the United States, California produces approximately 80.00 percent of the garlic grown domestically.  China is the largest grower producing over 75 percent the world's garlic

Vanilla beans, vanilla extract, natural flavors, TTB flavors, imitation extracts, essential oils, bakery emulsions, propylene glycol free flavors, vanillin, ethyl vanillin, menthol and chili peppers for baking, beverages (including beer, wine & spirits) and ice cream – Silver Cloud Estates.


Vanilla bean and extract prices remain very strong and we now do not anticipate lower prices before the Spring of 2018. We offer a number of cost effective alternatives to using Pure Vanilla Extract. These are especially attractive for bakeries, ice cream parlors and food service providers where consumers typically do not see an ingredient statement. For baking we recommend our Vanilla Powder, Natural and Artificial and our Value Vanilla Flavor,Natural & Artificial SC06 (For Baking). Both of these products can be used to replace Pure Vanilla Extract in cakes, cookies and other applications. For use in ice cream we recommend our Value Vanilla, Natural& Artificial SC25 (For Ice Cream).
