:: Latin Name :

Allii cepae bulbus, Fam. Liliaceae

:: Sensoric quality :

In fresh state, spicy, pungent and lachrymatory.

:: Main constituents :

Fresh onions contain only traces (0.01%) of essential oil, which mostly consists of sulfur compounds: Ethyl and propyl disulfides, vinyl sulfide and other sulfides and thioles.

:: Uses:

Use Onions in almost anything except sweets! Dried Onion can be added straight to liquids, but should be rehydrated before being added to drier dishes such as casseroles and stirfries. Rehydrating them also increases potency. Onions make the perfect foundation for meats, poultry, soups, salads, and stews. Dried Onions release flavor more rapidly than freshly chopped Onions when added to a recipe.


:: Availability :Whole, Granules, Flakes, Powder
