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.

  • Latest Market Information September 7, 2018

    August marks the beginning of the garlic season, which ends in November. Prices for fresh garlic have been fluctuating, and eventually falling to very low levels. This has resulted in a drastic price drop of the essential oil too. Considering that the planting area has not decreased this year, and prices of new production raw materials look low, garlic essential oil is expected to remain steady at a reasonably lower rate.
