Onions are healthy seasonings
Onions are healthy seasonings. In general, most people like an onion processed in a dish or even raw and finely chopped. An outing can make just that difference in taste. Raw the onion is the healthiest because unprocessed and unheated (as with most foods) the onion retains most of its nutrients. We often don't think about it that way, but besides that, onions are also just �healthy�.
Quercetin is often specifically mentioned when it comes to the nutrients contained in onions and this is because quercetin is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are very important for our body in their fight against "free radicals". Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause diseases and enter our body through inhalation, smoking, unhealthy food, etc. we really need these antioxidants because even though our body also produces antioxidants, this is by far not enough. We find many antioxidants in fruits and vegetables. If you want to know more about the effect between antioxidants and free radicals, read the article: 'Antioxidants and free radicals'
