I’ve Eaten Thousands Of Red Onions, But Had NO IDEA, They Did This To Them Before They Go To Stores

Have you ever wondered how the things you eat end up at your dining room table? If you have, then we have just the thing for you. Today, we give you this eye-opening video.

People have been eating onions for centuries, but don’t know how they grow. Most assume they grow from the ground, then picked, and sold to grocery stores. However, that isn’t the case. You have to see the fascinating process behind how onions, specifically Gills’ onions, are made.

An episode of the popular TV show “How It’s Made” featured how Gill’s onions are made and it is absolutely mind blowing. If you’re not familiar with this show, we highly recommend it. It gives a thorough look behind the scenes at how everyday things are manufactured. Each episode includes three to four products featured, with a mix consisting of common items such as jeans, aluminum foil and cereal, and less predictable ones like wax figurines, braille typewriters and pinball machines.

A lot of work goes into crafting the perfect onion after it’s been picked from the ground.The first stop for an onion after it leaves the farm is a cooling tunnel from which powerful fans remove the heat. They then take about five hours to cool down to the appropriate temperature for storage.
