The Dehydrated onion chopped is manufactured from the onion flakes, which are mainly used as ingredients in ready-to-eat products to add the caramelized sweetish onion flavor… The onion chopped is also used in vegetable curries or non-veg gravy and fried dishes. It is also utilized in burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, and pizza for a pungent aromatic flavor of onion.
Due to some specific usage, the dehydrated onion flakes having large dimensions are not suitable for several food items such as grilled or steamed ones. Hence, some finer substitutes of the dry onion flakes, viz., minced, chopped, granular, and powdered are also proposed. From all these varieties, the dehydrated onion chopped is manufactured from the dry onion flakes. In the starting phase, the unwanted impurities in the form of the outer skin and plant roots are removed by the sorting process. It is then passed through the cutting machine to obtain a finer sized product of the dried onions. At the last stage, chopped onions are processed via the Vibro table having 3 to 5 mm dimensions. This final 3 to 5 mm dried chopped onions are also known as Dehydrated Onion Chopped. There are mainly three different varieties of chopped onions produced by SKY Agri Export.
