  • Choose whole onions that are firm and heavy for their size, and have no scent. Look for a dry, papery outer skin. Avoid cut, bruised or sprouting onions.
  • Onion powder adds flavor when cooking. Choose onion powder over onion salt to help reduce the salt in your diet.
  • Yellow onions usually cost the least. Use them for cooking since the flavor becomes sweeter when cooked. Save more expensive sweet onions and red onions for times when you need a mild raw flavor or bright color.
  • Any type of onion can be used in most recipes.

★ Onions are great flavor boosters! They are good sources of fiber and vitamin B6.
