Hi Everyone,


I am looking to get some help in relation to a product being called "Wild Garlic Croutons". Stating that the garlic is wild, is a claim, but i am unsure of what relevant documents I need to back this claim up. On the garlic specification, the raw material description states "Ramsons is a wild growing plant of the subfamily garlic". I don't seem to believe that this could be enough to support the claim, but then again i'm unsure? Is there anything else I could request from my supplier if this statement isnt enough?


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think that the claim is that it is Wild Garlic, not that the garlic is wild. Wild Garlic is a different plant from garlic, and although is does grow wild, can be cultivated. We have large amounts in our hedgerows at the moment and I pick it frequently to add to food (use the leaves, not the bulbs).


Check out https://en.wikipedia.../Allium_ursinum for more info. Ask your supplier how it's harvested and used.
