13 BACKGROUND: The food industry produces a large amount of onion waste, making it 14 necessary to search for possible ways for their utilization. One way could be to use 15 these ‘waste’ onions as a new and natural source of high-value functional ingredients, 16 due to the presence of bioactive compounds in onion, which present health benefits. The 17 aim of this work was to provide information on the onion bulb (cv. Recas) and its 18 sections in order to evaluate its potential use as a… Expand

Thermal degradation of onion quercetin glucosides under roasting conditions.
TLDR
The stability of the glycosides is dependent on the kind and position of the sugar moiety, and the formation of a monoglycoside as an intermediate product was observed during the roasting process of the quercetin diglucoside isolated from onion. Expand
Study of total fructan and fructooligosaccharide content in different onion tissues
The objective of this work was to determine the fructan and fructooligosaccharide (FOS) content of different onion tissues in order to evaluate the potential use of onion by-products from the foodExpand
Varietal differences in phenolic content and antioxidant and antiproliferative activities of onions.
TLDR
Onions are a major source of dietary flavonoids; however, there may exist varietal differences in composition, concentration, and beneficial activities, which may influence consumers toward purchasing onion varieties exhibiting greater potential health benefits and may significantly affect future breeding efforts to enhance onion nutritional qualities.

Flavonol glucosides in Allium species: A comparative study by means of HPLC–DAD–ESI-MS–MS
Abstract Cultivars and consumption typologies of some Allium species can significantly vary from a chemical point of view and even small differences can be important for their characterization andExpand
Comparison of the antioxidant activity of two Spanish onion varieties
Phenol content and antioxidant activity of two Spanish onion varieties, namely white onion and Calcot de Valls, have been studied. White onions contained higher phenol content than Calcot onions,Expand
Effect of extraction procedure on measured sugar concentrations in onion (Allium cepa L.) bulbs.
TLDR
Bulb samples from a range of onion cultivars grown over three consecutive years were freeze-dried and the resulting powders extracted using three previously reported methods, indicating that the extraction procedure is crucial in the determination of the concentration and ratios of nonstructural carbohydrates in onion bulbs.
