Looking for garlic powder that is not produced in China. Has anybody found any?

Posted on 05/10/2009 12:42:03 PM PDT by Sun

I can't find any garlic powder that is not produced in China, whether it's a name brand, or generic brand. I'm willing to order it. Has anyone found any that is not produced in China?

What with all the garlic produced in Gilroy CA, there should be some available. However if they keep denying farmers water in CA, then ag products will be imported there also.

Yeah try to find a can of sliced mushrooms that aren’t from China too. Wonder what they grew them in or washed them in prior to canning. Wife brought home a can of Pennsylvania Dutchman brand canned in India. Think I’m gonna eat those too? Naw, I don’t think so...

Use the chopped garlic that comes in the plastic jars.
You can find it in the fresh veggie/fruit section of the grocery store.

All the garlic in our neck of the woods is either from central Texas or Gilroy, CA. Never knew any came from China. Well its easy to grow, guess people could do that.

Trader Joe’s has a policy of no food from China. Whether they have been able to fully implement it, I don’t know, but I think you can see by the labels.

Don’t be fooled by the organic label. The food could still come from China and be organic. Earthfare had some Organic Chamomile tea. In very small print, on the side of the box, it said it was from China.

Not sure if Korea, Thailand or Mexico is any better though.

Try www.badiaspices.com. They list a Maimi address and its marked “packed in USA” They are usually in the Mexican Food section, so it might come from messico.

As an aside, if you like garlic, try elephant garlic. Those are the great big bulbs. It is not as strong as cooking garlic, about as strong as purple onion. You can use a potato peeler to shave it onto a green salad. But if you cook it, it tastes like garlicky potato.

The biggest irony is that elephant garlic is actually a variety of leek, not a true garlic.

I just checked mine - it’s “packaged” in the USA, but not made in the USA. It doesn’t say where it was made. (McCormack)

I am shocked by all this. I had no idea! I thought garlic grew like crazy in California and Florida even. Well the Chinese better keep their mud hooks off my A1 Sauce and Heinz Catsup, that's all I have to say.

I've been ordering from this company for a long time. They give you the origin of their products. I checked and they have California garlic powder as well as from China and other garlic products. Their prices are always lower but you usually have to order a larger quantity (1/4 to 1 pound) rather than a 3 oz. jar. Also, a minimum $30 order.

Another reason to not buy from China, at least as much as possible:

Start calling the grocery stores - I think they’ll listen to us if we nip it in the bud.

I can hardly find Garlic that isn’t from China. The other day my grocery had frozen Okra from China. I complained. Not that it did any good, but I felt better.

Check that fine print folks, the produce dept is full of Chinese and Mexican food. Well, the whole store is full of it. And if it has a USA address close to the border, you can bet it wasn’t grown here.

That’s why we have to complain to the stores as you did. It’s bad enough we have to buy the electronics, but their food could make us sick.

It’s probably too late to stop the electronics from being made in China, but it’s early enough where we can get the stores to start carrying USA garlic and other foods again.

I called Hannaford and told them to stop carrying shrimp from China, and they DID! Probably others called, as well.

Call the store and ask them where it’s made if it doesn’t say.

I THINK the law is that if it doesn’t say, it’s supposed to be produced in our country, but I’m not sure.

“I THINK the law is that if it doesn’t say, it’s supposed to be produced in our country, but I’m not sure.”

Nope. The latest labeling implemented that Meat is supposed to be labeled, and possible fresh food. But if it’s packaged,processed, I don’t think they have to tell you where it’s from.

Q. What commodities require country of origin labeling?
A. Covered commodities include muscle cuts of beef (including veal), lamb, pork, goat, and
chicken; ground beef, ground lamb, ground pork, ground goat, and ground chicken; farm-
raised fish and shellfish; wild fish and shellfish; perishable agricultural commodities;
peanuts; ginseng, pecans and macadamia nuts.

If it says Packed in U.S.A. Then that is all it means! They bought the garlic powder in large bulk quanities from a source outside the USA and then package it for sale here.

We stopped buying canned mushrooms for just that reason. If I *must* have mushrooms, we get fresh now. Sad, but what else are you gonna do? I don’t want to chance it.
