Although all types of onions are considered superfoods, red onions have more health benefits. Distinguished by its purplish colour, the red onion is a vegetable that is most often eaten raw. Its flavour remains strong. Alternate eating it raw and cooked to take advantage of its vitamin C and iron content. Red onions are rich in nutrients, but also contain antioxidants and sulfuric acid. If you wonder why you cry when you cut onions, it is because they release this sulfuric acid. Indeed, onions have the particularity to capture the sulfur contained in the soil and to store it. When you cut an onion, a chemical reaction is triggered and releases an irritating and volatile gas which, when in contact with the eyes, makes you cry. Choose firm onions with no signs of sprouting or mould and a dry, smooth, brittle outer skin. Store your onions in a cool, dark place. 4082
