Granulated garlic is a coarse form of dried, ground garlic. Unlike garlic powder, which has a consistency much like flour or other finely ground powdered ingredients, granulated garlic is more like a coarse meal. The flavor can be stronger than that of regular garlic powder. Granulated garlic is often used in soups, sauces and other dishes. Granulated garlic also offers a flavor boost to dry rubs. It can be found in well-stocked spice departments, specialty spice stores, or online.
