Dried Onion

A Staple in Recipes Worldwide

For more than 5,000 years, onion has been used to add flavor to recipes of every ethnic origin around the world. Sweet yet savory, onion pairs well with garlic, mushrooms, and cilantro

In addition to a coveted flavor, onions are valued for their health-supportive properties. Onions are high in immune-supporting vitamin C. Also, studies have shown that onions may support healthy gastrointestinal, metabolic, heart, and cellular function.

Our wide variety of air-dried onion cuts from multiple regions around the world enable the addition of flavorful, nutritious onion to a variety of applications, including soups, seasoning mixes, snacks, gravies, meat products, stuffings, pasta sauces, table sauces, and just about every savory application one can imagine.

BCFoods has made great progress in our work to provide sustainable ingredients. We are proud to offer a sustainable option for the majority of our products, including onion, where we have contracted with farmers growing fresh onion for dehydration who have been awarded third-party certification for sustainable agriculture. We use the latest technology, local education, and local partnerships to reduce water use/waste, land erosion, pesticide overuse, soil and groundwater contamination, and biodiversity loss.
