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.
Having returned from an extensive trip in China, we concur that, for many reasons, it is difficult to understand garlic oil. However, the most compelling reason to be well-covered is that the Chinese government is taking a more hardline stance on pollution control. This policy severely limits the amount of reputable processors able to distill garlic. In recent months, prices have continued to soften. However, it is recommended to seriously look at contracting annual needs now, as prices may have just bounced off this year’s low.
