Onion powder is a dehydrated form of white, yellow or red onions which can be prepared commercially by dehydrating, vacuum-shelf drying, freeze-drying and flow drying. The water content from fresh onions is removed, which are then grounded and crumbled into powder form without impairing their nutrient content. As compared to raw and fresh onions, onion powder offers a number of advantages.
Onion is a seasonal and perishable product while onion powder is available all through the year and has longer shelf life. Moreover, onion powder is easy to store, light in weight, smaller in bulk and cheap to pack as compared to raw onions. It contains calcium, potassium and magnesium and is low in sodium, fats and calories. Onion powder is consumed in a number of food products as a dressing for pasta, grilled chicken, pizza, snacks, seafood, etc.; as a flavouring agent in vegetable and meat dishes; and in commercially prepared ready-to-eat foods such as soups, sauces, gravies, etc. According to a new report by Expert Market Research, the global onion powder market reached a volume of 57.3 Thousand Tons in 2018 and is further expected to reach 76.3 Thousand Tons by 2024.
During 2014-2018, the production of onion powder has witnessed a significant growth. In line with the hectic lifestyles, a shift towards ready-to-eat food products has been witnessed. In addition, onion powder offers convenience as it is easy to handle, available during off seasons and saves cooking time as it does not require chopping. This has significantly increased the global demand for onion powder in the past several years which is not limited to only urban households but can also be seen in the food processing industry. Furthermore, rising population and increasing disposable incomes, along with a strong demand from emerging markets are some of the other factors that have facilitated the market growth.
