This is the season when you can eat new onions. The season is once a year.
Please enjoy the sweet and fresh new onions in season with raw food.

What is the difference between “new onions” and ordinary “onions”?
The new onions have a thin skin and a pure white inside, which makes them look fresh and delicious.
It is quite different from ordinary onions, which have brown skin and are hard all year round.

Any difference between “raw” and “dried” ?
Generally, the onions are harvested in spring.
New onions and ordinary onions are also harvested in the spring, but there seems to be a difference in the subsequent processing.
Ordinary onions that are on the market all year round are made by drying the epidermis of onions that are harvested in the spring to improve their shelf life.
On the other hand, new onions are shipped immediately after harvesting without drying.
In other words, so whether or not “new(新-Shin)” is attached to onions is the difference between whether or not they are shipped without drying.

New onions are recommended to be eaten raw. Is there a difference in nutritional content?
“There is no difference in nutritional content between new onions and onions, and they contain vitamins B1, B2, C, calcium, iron, etc.
Also, they are rich in allyl sulfide, which is the source of the spiciness of onions.
It is said that allyl sulfide can be expected to be highly effective against high blood pressure and diabetes because it promotes the secretion of digestive juices, promotes metabolism, and makes blood smooth.

However, it is easily dissolved in water and weak against heat, so if you want to take allyl sulfide efficiently, raw is recommended.
In particular, new onions are fresh and hard to feel spicy, so they are easy to eat raw. ”

Is refrigeration for new onions needed?
New onions do not seem to last very long because they contain a lot of water.
Therefore, please note that the storage method is different from the normal onions that are on the market all year round.
When storing new onions, put them in a plastic bag and then put them in the refrigerator so that they can be eaten in 2 to 3 days.
