Should I throw sprouting garlic away?

All I have is garlic with little green bits coming from the tips of the cloves. Is eating this as bad as eating green potatoes?

No. The green bit can make the garlic bitter, but I just slice it open and remove the sprout.

The green bit is perfectly edible and shows your garlic is living, non-irradiated and potent with helpful, active phytochemicals. Nom.

If you want to compare sprouted garlic to potatoes, compare it to the potato eyes. It's basically the same as when the eye of a potato starts to sprout. Break that part off, and move on.

Green potatoes happen when the potato is subjected to light or very cold or very warm temperatures when it's growing.
