Onion is a vegetable and herb that resides in the same botanical family with chives and garlic. The sharp bite and lingering aftertaste of raw onion is due to the oxygenation of the same enzymes that cause watering eyes when cutting in the the fresh bulb. Dried onion, whether granulated or powdered, has a milder taste, is much easier on tear ducts and has the added benefit of possessing a long shelf life. Dried and chopped or granular onion is added directly to foods while cooking and savory breads and rolls prior to baking. Powdered onion is used as seasoning to enhance the flavor or foods, especially dips and creamy salads.
