Garlic extract debuts
Cactus Botanics, an international expert in botanical extracts, has added allicin to its ingredient lineup. Allicin is a potent active compound found in garlic proven beneficial for immune support. When the garlic plant is attacked or injured, it produces allicin through an enzymatic reaction. The enzyme allinase converts the chemical alliin to allicin, which is toxic to insects and microorganisms. The antimicrobial activity of allicin was discovered in 1944. The company manufactures deodorized garlic powder through a unique drying and buffering process. Safe, odor-controlled and bioavailable, the garlic powder can meet a variety of formulation requirements.
