NO WONDER WHITE ONIONS ARE TRENDING

We’re glad to see that awareness for white onions, and their culinary importance, continues to grow. Gone are the days when eating fresh and healthy is a niche movement. Today the healthy food/healthy body connection is top of mind across generations and many of us are embracing plant-based and minimal-meat diets. White onions are perfect for today’s healthy food trends such as Clean-Eating, Power Bowls, Instant Pot, Vegetarian, Mediterranean, and Indian. They’re such a wonderful, versatile onion we’re sure you’ll become a fan too.

TASTES GOOD & GOOD FOR YOU
Onions are fat-free, cholesterol-free, low in sodium, high in vitamin C and a good source of fiber. Organosulfur and other compounds in onions help increase circulation, lower blood pressure and prevent blood clotting. They detoxify the body and skin and they also fight the free radicals that can cause cell destruction and disease.

Onions also contain generous amounts of a flavonoid called quercetin, a potent antioxidant with anti-allergy, antiviral and antihistamine properties. Studies show it may also protect against cataracts, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Now that you know how healthy our onions are, we hope you’ll make them a staple in your diet.
Did You Know?
Onions contain a prebiotic fiber, inulin, that helps to feed and encourage the growth of healthy gut bacteria which creates a stronger immune system, assists in healthy absorption and assimilation of food, and actually helps your mood and brain function?

TIPS & TRICKS
CUTTING: Different recipes call for different types of onion cuts. Whether your recipe calls for sliced, diced, rings or wedges, white onions can be cut the same way as any other onion variety. These pros have shared their various cutting techniques:

Watch “How to Cut Onions Like a Pro” for cutting tips!
Rings
Best used on a sandwich or burger, pizza, or baked or fried into onion rings. Great cut for caramelizing onions.
Minced
Very finely chopped works great mixed with meat to tenderize, in Indian sauces to thicken without cream or stirred into a salsa.
Chopped
A larger chop than mince, this cut works well in soups, dips, egg dishes and with pasta. The most versatile, all-around cut of onion.
French Cut
Or “Frenched”, these slivers are good on salads, skewered and grilled or used for pickling.
“I just wanted to send along a Thank You for growing such beautiful, fresh onions. I use onions so much in cooking and when I purchased these at Sprouts Market in Petaluma, California, I was impressed by their quality. Enough so that I found the little stick on tag and looked you up on the Internet. So, just a thank you for growing my food and doing such a good job!” -- D. Kramer
