Description: Our Organic Ground Onion Powder is the ideal store cupboard ingredient to have on hand when you want to add onion flavour to a dish such as a sauce or marinade without adding texture or pieces of onion. Onion powder has a rich, strong flavour, a tantalising aroma and should be used sparingly: using this essential store cupboard ingredient also means no more watery, crying eyes when preparing meals as these kibbled onions require no chopping and peeling! The onion is an herbaceous biennial plant native to south-western Asia, now grown throughout the temperate zones of the world. The leaves are tubular, hollow and waxy and bluish-green in colour, they grow in a fan shape from the base of the bulb and can be up to 45cm in length. The floral stalk is rigid, hollow and waxy and grows from the centre of the bulb and can be up to 1 meter in height, with a globe or spherical like inflorescence comprised of tiny hermaphrodite flowers which are white in colour.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that the reason that onions make you cry is down to a chemical reaction? Onions contain amino acid sulfoxides which form sulfenic acids when the cells of the onion are broken, in their uncut state they are fine, but cutting the onion breaks the cells, which release the sulfenic acids, as the acid sulfoxides mix with the sulfenic acids they produce a substance known as propanethiol S-oxide, which is a volatile sulphur vapour, that vapour makes its way to your eyes and reacts with the natural watery lubricant in the eyes it turns to sulphuric acid when it mixes with the tears and acts like an irritant, forcing the eyes to create even more ‘tears’ to wash out the acid.
Ingredients: Dried ground bulbs of organic Allium cepa.
