Being a ubiquitous spice across the world, garlic makes a crucial ingredient in the customary and contemporary food recipes to enhance their flavors. Increasing trends of consuming frozen foods and promising growth witnessed by the canned food industry, there has been a visible demand for food ingredients with long life shelf and abundant availability. As a result, dehydrated garlic is gradually besetting the popularity of fresh garlic, which has a relatively short shelf life, seasonal availability, and fluctuating prices. This has shifted the attention of food manufacturers and consumers towards dehydrated garlic, given its ease of storage and transportation.
Dehydrated garlic is finding extensive application in snack foods, stuffing mixes, meat products, gravies, soups, salsa sauce, gourmet sauces, fast foods, and as seasoning in the food and beverage industry, on the back of its strong flavor and retained nutritional values from the raw garlic. With food and industry undergoing innovation at a consistent pace and this spice being a flavor stimulating ingredient, the global dehydrated garlic market is likely to secure lucrative growth opportunities in the forthcoming years.
