|For all varieties of
onions, the more phenols and flavonoids
they contain, the more antioxidant and anti-cancer activity they
provide. When tested against liver and colon cancer cells, Western
Yellow, pungent yellow (New York Bold) and shallots were most effective
in inhibiting their growth. The milder-tasting varieties—Western White,
Peruvian Sweet, Empire Sweet, Mexico, Texas 1015, Imperial Valley
Sweet, and Vidalia—showed little cancer-fighting ability.
Shallots and ten other
onion (Allium cepa L.) varieties
commonly available in the United States were evaluated: Western Yellow,
Northern Red, pungent yellow (New York Bold), Western White, Peruvian
Sweet, Empire Sweet, Mexico, Texas 1015, Imperial Valley Sweet, and
Vidalia. In general, the most pungent onions delivered many times the
benefits of their milder cousins.
