Ground Onion Spice - Onion Powder

Onion spice is a staple in every kitchen around the world. It can be used to season not only sauces but also meats, dips, and fish. Onion powder is a versatile spice with a delicate onion flavor.

The onion is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world. For over 5000 years, people have been growing onions as vegetables and using them for their medicinal and aromatic properties.

What is an Onion?

In the German language, the term "onion" refers to the bulb, which is a storage organ. It is the shoot of a plant, specifically the onion plant (Allium cepa) of the leek genus (Allium).

The onion goes by various names such as "Bolle," "onion," "Zipolle," "house onion," "table onion," "kitchen onion," "garden onion," or "summer onion."


The kitchen onion (Allium cepa) is a biennial herbaceous plant. However, commercial cultivation typically lasts only one year until harvest. It requires soft or sandy loamy soil and a warm, sunny region. In Germany, it is mainly cultivated in Bavaria and Lower Saxony.

From the underground disc-shaped bulb, longitudinally grooved leaf sheaths grow, from which hollow leaf blades emerge, reaching up to 50 cm in height. In the second year, a flower stalk shoots up to one meter tall. This spherical umbel consists of individual bell-shaped flowers, ranging in color from white to purple.

Culinary Uses of Onion Spice

The vegetable onion and onion seasoning are used in kitchens worldwide. Like salt and pepper, it is an essential spice that enhances the flavors of other herbs. Onion powder adds flavor to sauces, broths, combined with bay leaves and cloves, as well as stews, roasts, and fish dishes.

Storage of Onion Powder

Onion powder is highly sensitive to moisture, so it should be stored in a dry, cool place in an airtight container. This will help preserve the best possible aroma of the onion powder, allowing you to enjoy our products for an extended period.
