Allicin, a garlic compound often used for immune-support dietary supplements, is a new ingredient offering from Cactus Botanics (Shanghai). The garlic powder comes deodorized, thanks to a unique drying and buffering process.

Allicin is part of garlic’s own natural defense against attacks by pests and is enzymatically produced when the garlic plant is attacked or injured, says Cactus Botanics. Allicin is toxic to insects and microorganisms. The enzyme allinase is what converts alliin to allicin.
