I love garlic, but fresh garlic is harder on my tummy than the powdered, granulated, or the refrigerated minced stuff in olive oil. It doesn't give me heartburn, but if I have too much, it goes through me "like salts through the hired girl," as my grandma used to say.

People's systems are different. Probably has to do with our gene pool.

Probably like deep fried foods effect me, some times I just suffer, especially with gravy, love it but tears me up. Can't eat it too often!

I like garlic, but a little goes a long way for me. It upsets my stomach something awful. Small amounts don't seem to be an issue, but if I detect much more than a hint of garlic taste, then there is probably more than I can tolerate. Don't know about garlic powder - usually just skip the garlic enitrely, or use very little.

Goodie, I'm not the only one! Same for me, if its just a tiny insy winsy bit of garlic then I'm ok, but if not my poor little belly hurts the rest of the night!

And I'm just the opposite - fresh garlic (raw or cooked) doesn't cause me any problems at all (although I don't do 40-cloves in a scrambled egg like Emeril) - but garlic powder or garlic salt in excess (more than just enough to just taste it) will have me up all night with indigestion so bad I can't breath. Garlic salt causes me the most problems for some reason.

We have a local fried chicken place (Edmondson's) which is like Church's but they used to use a little garlic powder in the flour breading, or at least they did before they changed owners and now they use a ton of garlic salt. Gosh but I miss the "hint" or garlic they use to have ... not the "SWAT Team kicking down the doors" overpowering garlic salt they have now.

My late m-i-l could not tolerate garlic due to all the arthritis (antiinflammatory) medicines that she was taking but could tolerate garlic powder or dried garlic flakes, up to a point.

I tolerate garlic just fine (must be the Sicilian blood!) but onions and I have a mutual non-aggression pact. I don't eat them, they don't hurt me.

Wow, this thread is really interesting. I have never had an issue with garlic (or onions) and I have actually read that they are supposed to be very beneficial for preventing many types of digestive related cancers. I think I would be a very unhappy girl if I couldn't have garlic in my food. Wow, do I feel badly for you. Does a glass of milk help? Or maybe some baking soda or something?
