Onion flakes are made when fresh onions have been both minced and then allowed to dry. The drying process involves the use of a dehydration machine that takes away the moisture without cooking the onion. They are found in the spice aisle of the grocery store. This substitute for onions can be used to replace onions in certain recipes like when making soups or stews. Onion flakes can be made from red, white or yellow onions.
Onion flakes are much more concentrated than other types of onion substitutes. One tablespoon of flakes is equal to one whole onion.

Please Note: It’s best to have seasonings that are non-ETO. What is this? No Irradiation or ETO — Frontier does not sell any products or use any ingredients that have been sterilized by irradiation or ethylene oxide (ETO). They utilize safe and effective steam sterilization to preserve product quality. In my research, I found it’s important to find companies that sell spices and seasonings not to use ETO. Don’t be afraid to ask. It’s your health we are dealing with. FYI: Can organic spices be irradiated? Nope. How about treated with ethylene oxide? Nope. The only allowable method for USDA certified organic is steam sterilization. Learn more about this from superfoodly.
