granules Onion is made from whole white onions that are gently dehydrated and ground to deliver consistent, pure onion flavor. So convenient, it makes it a snap to add savory richness to just about any dish ̶ from dips to soups, vegetables, chicken and burgers. Granulated onion is an easy way to add full, fresh onion flavor when your recipe doesn’t require the texture of fresh onions or you want to avoid the hassle of peeling and chopping onions. Use 1 tbsp. granulated onion in place of ½ cup chopped fresh onions. Our granulated onion has a coarser texture that onion powder, making it ideal as a base for homemade dry rubs and seasoning blends.
