The onion is a plant that used to be the seasoning. If you love to cook onions, use these tips to produce more nutritious foods: onions finished when crushed, let the onions for about 10 minutes. Research shows that by letting the onions for 10 minutes, then the onion will contain more content than the anticancer onions are cooked immediately after grinding.
Why is that? After the completion of crushed garlic, then it will come out the enzyme from cells that were destroyed. The enzyme takes 10 minutes to get to work optimally.
A study conducted at Penn State College of Health and Human Development indicates that the period of 'rest' for 10 minutes after the crushed garlic will lead to an enzyme derived from onion cells interact with other chemical components in other cells. The process of crushing garlic will open the onion cells and cause the release of enzymes, which then react with other cells and produce chemical allyl sulfur components which have anti-cancer benefits.
Allyl sulfur components produced from the reaction of the enzyme is essential to produce anticancer effects of an onion. When the onions are heated or baked immediately after crushed, then the enzyme will die because the heating process and anticancer effects will disappear.
Onions using microwave heating or baking may reduce the anticancer components, except the onions are sliced or crushed first, then allowed to stand for 10 minutes. Research shows that heating it in a microwave for 1 minute or roasting in oven for 45 minutes can eliminate the anticancer components in onions. Anticancer activity contained in the onion will work just fine if onions allowed to stand for 10 minutes after crushed or sliced. In the case of roasting onions, anticancer components can be maintained when the top of the onion cut in half before it is heated.
So, do not be too quick to cook the onions after crushed, yes! Note there are 10 minutes required in order for the enzyme in onions work with the maximum, so that the benefits we receive is also growing.
