Onions

"Onions contain chromium"

In South Africa we grow mostly brown, white and purple(red) onions. Onions contain phenolics and flavonoids that have potential anti-inflammatory, anti-cholesterol, anti-cancer and antioxidant properties. Onions have been cultivated for more than 7000 years. The ancient Egyptians worshipped onions. Roman gladiators were rubbed down with onions to firm up their muscles.
