Did you know?

Onion powder is a great way to pack in flavor in any meal without having to cook up a single onion. Because it’s made from dehydrated onions, a simple pinch will pack in a ton of concentrated flavor. And while onion powder isn’t going to make a significant difference in your diet, including it will help support a healthy diet. For example, it’s a great way to pack in flavor without adding extra sodium. It also contains a good amount of potassium, which contributes to healthy bones and muscles.
