Onions are vegetables that grow as underground bulbs at the base of plants known scientifically as Allium cepa.

Also known as bulb onions or common onions, they are grown worldwide, and are closely related to chives, garlic, scallions, shallots and leeks.

Onions may have several health benefits, mostly due to their high content of antioxidants and sulfur-containing compounds.

They have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and have been linked to reduced risk of cancer, lower blood sugar and bone health.

Onions are commonly used as a flavoring or side dish, and are a staple food in Indian cooking.

There are countless ways to enjoy onions. They can be baked, boiled, grilled, fried, roasted, sauteed, powdered or eaten raw in salads.
