Onion Powder is dehydrated, ground onion.


  • Used as a seasoning.


  • Low In Sodium:  Onion powder has an intense flavor, but is very low in salt, with just 2 mg per teaspoon. This makes it a good substitute for salt in many recipes, including burgers, salads and soups. The daily recommended intake for sodium is no more than 2,300 mg, a number that many Americans exceed. Cutting back on salt by using onion powder when cooking can help reduce your risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke.

  • Calcium:  Calcium is a nutrient that your body needs for strong bones and teeth, but also plays a role in nerve transmission and healthy functioning of your muscles. A teaspoon of onion powder contains 9 mg of calcium. With daily intake recommendations being between 1,000 and 1,200 mg, this number may not seem like a lot, but adding onion powder to your favorite dishes can increase your intake without much effort.

  • Low In Fat and Calories:  Using onion powder in your favorite recipes ramps up the flavor without adding a significant amount of fat and calories. Keeping your diet moderate in both allows you to control your weight, which reduces the risk of several health conditions, including heart disease and diabetes. A teaspoon of onion powder contains just eight calories and virtually no fat, allowing you to use as much as you like without hindering your health goals.
