Onion is the most planted vegetable in the world, and its nutritional value is very high, known as the "Queen of Vegetables".
Onions not only contain the nutrients that the body needs, but also have many medicinal properties, such as antioxidant, anticancer, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, etc.
It is worth mentioning that onions contain some fructans, which most vegetables do not.
Fructan is a carbohydrate with health care functions, which can reduce the production of tumor-related substances and has a good effect on the prevention of cancer and other chronic diseases.
However, there are some side effects after eating too much onion according to experts
There are no enzymes in the intestine that can break down fructans, so the body cannot digest or absorb them.
Large amounts of fructans accumulate in the intestine and can cause intestinal problems such as bloating, abdominal pain, gas, and cramps.
One of the most popular drawbacks of eating onions is their tendency to give you bad breath and body odor.
Although rare, people may develop allergic reactions to onions, particularly onion seeds, in which symptoms present as itching, watering of the eyes, and skin rashes on coming in contact with onion or onion extracts.
Therefore, you cannot eat too many onions, and it is recommended to eat 50 grams to 80 grams a day.
