"I was very surprised to discover that this garlic powder was the consistency of flour--a very very fine, very soft powder. Usually when I buy garlic powder, I expect it to be a bit more granular. It still tastes good, but I don't think I like the consistency for when I sprinkle it on the outside of baked potatoes, or on steaks on the grill--it comes out in a powdery poof."
"I got this once my container of Simply Organic garlic powder ran out (buying bulk is so much less expensive). This powder is much finer than Simply Organics, and I actually prefer that. The flavor was fresh. I will buy again (when and if I ever run out of 1 lb of this stuff!)"
"Except for pudding, I don't think there is anything I don't add it to when cooking! May I just suggest you include a shaker of some kind (with small holes) for tabletop use. This would deem this product perfect!"
Brand is great, but don't like the powdered form..

"I mistakenly ordered the garlic Powder- rather than the Starwest garlic Granules, as I usually do. This is a great company, we and others I know order their products regularly. It's just that personally, I totally Prefer the garlic Granules form of garlic over the powdered form. The Starwest seasonings and other products are great quality, economical, and offer a variety of products in the larger 1# bags. I Highly recommend their products, it is just that I find the Garlic Granules a much better choice, easier to use and also to control the amount when cooking than the powder."
"I was pleasantly surprised on how good and delicious this garlic is. When I ordered it, I thought it was the fine granular product, but in fact it is a very fine white powder almost like bread flour consistency. After trying and using it, I now prefer this texture and grind. It has ha very fresh taste, easy to use and shake/pour and dissolves very quickly on wet food items. Store well too in its re-sealable bag."
"This garlic powder is a very fine powdery product, but I love it ,it has a strong garlic taste to it & I find because it is so fine that it stays & goes on your food a lot better than others ..Being all Italian I definitely recommend this & will be ordering again ..."
"Love everything about it except the bag doesn't seal. Quality control dropped the ball on this one. I've had several other Starwest spice bags that wouldn't seal as well. A good seal is vital to keeping the spices fresh. Why even have the seal if it doesn't work? I give it only 3 stars because this problem has yet to be resolved, otherwise it would be 5."
"The other reviewers are not joking when they say this is true powder -- the consistency of flour. It's very easy to mix into flour when making homemade garlic-herb bread. It's got a very fresh garlic flavor. I've been buying this brand for a few years, and the product is highly consistent."
"This is the best garlic powder (yes, it's really a powder - not granules). It has an intense flavor and you only need a little bit. It blends into the dishes and disappears, but leaves a wonderful garlic flavor. I am hooked!"
"I was a little skeptical when I opened the bag. This garlic really is a POWDER not like any garlic I've seen. I do like it and would buy it again. Its strong but not bitter and blends well when cooking. Good stuff!"
"First thing i have to say is that this is meant for cooking-not meant for sprinkling on pizza- learnt that the hard way. That said it is great quality and adds that extra kick of garlic flavor i need in my sauces and food."
"I'm used to Garlic powder being more granular...this is more like Garlic flour...Meaning it is the consistency of flour. This is not an exaggeration.. Just be aware in case this isn't what you're looking for..."
