The effects of high pressure on alliinase and on flavor of garlic (Alliiium sativum L.) were investigated. After pressurized at 150 MPa, 300 MPa, and 500 MPa for 10 min, the activities of purified alliinase were reduced approximately 30%, 80%, and 100%, respectively, while the enzyme activities of pressurized garlic cloves were reduced 0%, 7%, and 100%, respectively. This indicated that the intact garlic has a protective effect against pressure-inactivation of alliinase. Alliinase was more effectively inactivated when high pressure treatment was carried out at high ($>40^{\circ}C$) or low temperature ($>10^{\circ}C$) than ambient temperature. Pressure treated garlic at 500 MPa had little pungency and sulfuryl odor compared to raw garlic indicating that high-pressure processing can be used to produce garlic without pungent flavor.
