Yang is rich in sulfurized propylene-based compounds, vitamins and minerals.

After hundreds of years of evolution, hundreds of varieties have emerged. If distinguished by the color of the bulb skin, there are purple red, maroon, light brown red, yellow to light yellow. The popular onion varieties are white, yellow and purple.
White onion: It contains high sweetness and high water content, with less pungency, and its white color comes from phenolic compound flavonoids, which have antioxidant effects. The juicy nature of white onions makes them ideal for stewing, boiling, salads or roasting.
Yellow onions: They are the most productive, and their high sweetness makes them ideal for stir-frying or soups.
Purple onion: Also known as "red onion", its color is derived from water-soluble anthocyanins, but this is only found on the surface of the scale leaves, and its color will be diluted and faded after cooking. Purple onion has less pungent and pungent taste, crisp and refreshing, suitable for salad.
In addition to distinguishing by color, it can be distinguished by the time of harvest. Ordinary onions are harvested in autumn, but there is a spring onion, which is planted in late autumn and harvested when it is not fully mature in the following spring and early summer. The taste is relatively light and juicy, but it is more prone to spoilage.

Affordable: If onion and tea are eaten together for a long time, the antioxidant flavonoids contained in the two can reduce the incidence of coronary heart disease. Phase g: onion should not be eaten with honey, so as not to cause eye discomfort. Onions should not be eaten with marine fish, because the oxalic acid in onions will decompose and destroy the protein in marine fish, which is not conducive to absorption. It is also not advisable to eat onions with kelp, because the oxalic acid in onions will form stones with the minerals in kelp, and eating too much will make people constipated.
Cooking Skills：The sulfonylurea butyric acid in the onion is easy to volatilize after being cooked for a long time, and loses the effect of lowering blood sugar, so the onion should not be cooked for a long time. But be aware that prolonged cooking can caramelize the sugar in the onion, making it sweeter. If you want to avoid tears when you cut onions, cut them in water, or refrigerate them for a while before cutting them.
Notes：Because onions are prone to produce volatile gases, they should not be eaten in excess. Excessive consumption can cause bloating.
