|Did You Know?
do onions make you cry?
As onions are sliced, cells are broken open. Onion cells have two
sections, one with enzymes called allinases, the other with sulfides.
When the enzymes mix with the sulfides (amino acid sulfoxides),
sulfenic acids are formed. Sulfenic acid is unstable and decomposes
into a volatile gas called syn-ropanethial-S-oxide. The gas then
dissapates through the air and eventually reaches one's eye, where it
will react with the water to form a mild sulfuric acid. The sulfuric
acid irritates the nerve endings in the eyes, making them sting.
The release of gas can thus best be prevented by cutting the onions
under running tap water or completely under water. This is not very
practical of course. For more tips and information, please check links
in External links section.
Different species of onions will release different amounts of sulfenic
acids, thus some will cause more tear formation than others.
