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.
There has been little production over the past 18 months which has put immense pressure on supplies and with it market prices. Today, prices are higher than they have ever been with no real positive foreseeable changes on the horizon with environmental protection orders set to remain in place.
It takes 500 tons of garlic to make 1 ton of garlic oil and as such there is no profit in this oil unless the price of the oil keeps rising, and this seems inevitable.
