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.
The prices of raw garlic shot up by almost 20% in recent times in stark contrast to the lowest pricing seen last year. This is because production is much lower than what was initially predicted leading to an upsurge in prices. With the significant increase in supply, there was a marked drop in price from its zenith. Prices dropped drastically to basic production costs. China’s strict environmental policies have made it difficult for the polluting plants to resume normal operations.
