Onion powder is a processed form of dehydrated onion that can add the same flavor as fresh onions in a convenient manner. As a flavoring agent, onion powder is currently being used in a number of food and non-food products like- snacks, sauces, salads, soups, gravies, appetizers, seafood, meats, etc. Although, it is slightly less pungent than fresh onions, even its little amount can replace the chopping of a whole medium-sized onion. Thus, it is quite easier to handle compared to fresh onions and saves a lot of time while cooking as no chopping is required. Onion powder is also easier to pack and unlike fresh onions does not require refrigerated storage.

Manufactured by dehydrating fresh onions, onion powder has become a product of choice not only among urban households but also in the global food processing industry. Dehydration reduces the water content of fresh onions without impairing their nutrient content and thus offers a standard quality hygienic product. After dehydration, the dehydrated onion flakes can be crushed and finely grounded to form onion powder. As onions are seasonal and cannot be stored under ordinary conditions, dehydration has become an effective and economical technique for preserving them during seasons of abundance and using them during off seasons.
