Raw Onions

In this section of Seattle Organic Restaurants, I’m going to talk about the health benefits of onions. Onions have been grown natively in Middle East and Asia for thousands of years. The Egyptians used to pay their workers onions for building temples and pyramids. As early as the 6th century, onions were known for their medicinal benefits in India. Onions were brought to US by Christopher Columbus and today Spain, Russia, US, India and China are among the largest producers of onions in the world. I do personally love adding onions to every dish that I make. It’s hard for me to imagine a kitchen without the taste and flavor of onions!


Onions are great source of flavonoids and polyphenol. Peel an onion as little as it’s necessary since the flavonoids in onions are concentrated in the outer layer.

A red Onion could lose a lot of its flavonoids and nutrients if it’s overpeeled. Onions also are great source of polyphenol (largest phytonutrients in food) and the polyphenol content in onion is higher than vegetables like tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, celery and garlic. Onion like garlic has great health benefits. Like other raw fruits and vegetables, raw onions can reduce the chances of cardiovascular disease and heart attack.

Onions are full of antioxidants and have also been known for their anti-inflammatory benefits. Onions have been known to increase bone density, especially in women who are or have passed the menopausal age and are dealing with loss of bone density. Onions have been known for reducing the chances of colorectal cancer, breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Onion could balance the blood sugar and have been known for their antibacterial propertie, even the bacteria involved in tooth cavity. Keep in mind that fried onions are really bad for your health and here are the top reasons why you should never fry onions and consume them raw. http://www.seattleorganicrestaurants.com/vegan-whole-foods/fried-onions/ Here are nutritional facts of raw onions:
