Garlic Oil China Allium sativum L.

  • Description

    Garlic oil is commonly produced in China with an annual crop around April - May. Oil production is secondary to the fresh garlic herb and the processing of garlic granules industry.

    Garlic oil is an extract of Allium sativum L. bulb, a small perennial plant.

    The oil itself is primarily used in both the food industry, as a flavouring and in the pharmaceutical industry.  Garlic's medicinal effects are primarily due to allicin content. 

    Garlic can be used in the treatment of elevated blood lipid levels insufficiently influenced by diet, in the improvement of the circulation in peripheral arterial vascular disease and to prevent the age-dependent vascular changes in our bodies. Garlic extracts also have antibacterial and antimycotinc properties, inhibit platelet aggregation, prolong bleeding and clotting time and enhance fibrinolytic activity.

    Pollution has been a major deterrent this year. The impact on the garlic crop has led to many distillers stopping production. Those who are going ahead with their plans of extracting garlic oil are doing so at their own risk. This oil, not as popular as ginger, does not command a robust demand. The industry is fervently hoping for an arrest in the ascent of garlic oil prices since production costs have already soared. With slack in global demand, prices remain steadfast albeit on the higher side.

    Market price USD 130.00 /kilo
