There aren’t many foods more polarizing than garlic (Allium sativum). Most people either fall head-over-heels in love with it or avoid it as if they were vampires. But make no mistake; the nutritional content of garlic makes this one potent potable everyone should find a way to incorporate into their diet.
For adding flavor and aroma to your favorite dishes garlic is tough to beat. It’s also a good source of certain important nutrients, such as the mineral nutrient manganese, vitamin B-6 and amino acids. In addition garlic possesses a unique sulfur-containing compound called allicin, which is classified as a thiosulfinate. Not only is allicin part of the reason for garlic’s pungent and powerful aroma and flavor, it’s also believed to be responsible for some of its health benefits.
