The magical properties of onions
Most of us cry bitter tears from him, but still he is needed almost everywhere. We add it to salads and soups, and we can eat just like that. Today we will talk about onions not just as a vegetable, which causes a lot of tears, but also about its beneficial properties, as well as very interesting facts that you should like.
One famous comedian, Jimmy Carr, at his next stand-up, said: “Quite a lot of those who cut a bow pour pouring crocodile tears into it. But, my dear, if you do not want to cry, then stop so strongly emotionally attached to him. " This quote, at one time, has become a cult. Well, I really do not know why Jimmy decided to put forward such a theory about tears during the cleaning and cutting of onions, but I have another, somewhat prosaic, but still scientifically proven.
Have you noticed that when cutting onions, not only does the person who actually take up the business, but everything around you, start to tear? This happens because the onion's natural skin is broken.Enzymes that are contained in the cells of this vegetable, find a way out and are mixed with air, thereby forming a pair of volatile sulfur. That's it in these pairs the whole thing. As soon as they get on the mucous membrane of the eye, our body begins to defend itself immediately, because the irritant will “attack”, and the protective reaction of our body is tears. To avoid this, you can do this:
• Slicing any onion, immediately throw it into the water. Prepare a bowl of cold water in advance. So, a pair of flying sulfur will not be able to get to your eyes.
