Does grilling garlic kill the allicin?

Recommended Posts

I wanted to crush up some garlic and then put it onto some bread and put it under the grill for a few minutes. I remember reading about ways that the allicin in garlic can be killed in some methods of cooking etc. So does anyone know if having it under the grill for a few minutes would affect it at all?

According to whfoods.com or org, you should chop onions or garlic fine to crush cells and then let sit for 5-10 minutes before cooking. The crushing starts a process that gets stopped by cooking unless you give it time. Or something like that. I didn't memorize it.

I've always read that cooking garlic at all kills the allicin- could be wrong though. Even if you cook it, though, it will have antifungal/antibacterial effect because it is high in sulfur (and other compounds) which cooking actually increases.
