For those tired of tearing up when cooking with onions, an innovative and unexpected new product has entered the food market in the UK: Sunions. These modified sweet onions offer shoppers a tear-free alternative to the traditional and widely-used supermarket staple.
According to the company, Sunions arrive as a result of 30 years of experimentation, which saw the brand grow multiple non-conventional varieties. And finally, the company has landed on the winning breed. Unlike traditional onions, Sunions do not contain the volatile compounds "responsible for tearing and pungent flavor.” This is because the new products have been produced in a way that allows these compounds to diminish over time, leaving a tearless, sweet onion with neither the harsh chemicals nor the sharp taste.
