While onions are used in our homes for food, tears also come out of the eyes while cutting them, which upsets everyone.
However, onions are ready for sale in UK supermarkets that will not cause tears in the eyes when cut.
According to foreign media reports, this special type of onion will be available for sale in UK supermarkets from next week.
These special onions have been dubbed Sunion which is best for people with sensitive eyes while they are also sweet in taste and they can be cooked in food like ordinary onions and also used raw in salads.
British supermarket officials say that they believe that these onions will be very helpful to our customers, which we are going to introduce in some selected stores from January 18.
Who invented this onion?
These onions that do not shed tears when cut are the brainchild of Rick Watson, a plant breeder working for the German Chemical Company (BASF), who began working on innovation in the late 1980’s and developed a unique variety of onion. Used natural techniques instead of genetic modification to create.
According to reports, it took more than 30 years for this particular type of onion to grow in which a type of onion was discovered in which the vapors emitted when cut are not strong enough to cause tears in the eyes.
In addition, these onions have not been genetically modified and have been grown through a completely natural crossbreeding program.
It should be noted that sesame seeds, which cost more than standard onions, were already available for sale in some places in the United States, but they were not accepted globally.
A review in the American newspaper The Washington Post in 2018 stated that these onions were very sweet in taste, so sweet that you could sit down and eat them like popcorn.
