  • 2.  Sip MilkMilk effectively reduces garlic breath if you drink it before or during a meal, a 2010 Journalof Food Science study suggests. “The water [in the milk] acts like a mouth rinse, and the fatneutralizes sulfur,” says Kantha Shelke, PhD, spokesperson for the Institute of FoodTechnologists. That’s why whole milk is more effective than skim. Eat the Garnish“Sulfur compounds in garlic are released not only in the mouth, but also in the gut, fromwhich they seep into the lungs and skin,” says Victor Sierpina, MD, professor of family andintegrative medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. This makesfreshening garlic breath more complex than merely cleansing the mouth. But start there.It’s handy that chefs decorate plates with parsley: Plant chemicals like chlorophyll andpolyphenols bind to sulfur compounds in garlic and help neutralize odor. Basil, thyme,cilantro, mint, and dill have similar effects. Drink Green TeaCan’t stomach milk with stir-fry? Polyphenol-rich green tea may dull garlic stench too. Add Mushrooms to Your Tomato SaucePreliminary research suggests that the polyphenols in mushrooms work faster than anyother compound to counteract garlic’s effects on breath, says Shelke. Have Fruit for DessertNatural enzymes in apples, berries, pineapple, and kiwis break down sulfur compounds.
