Indian Onion Powder Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026

Onion powder is prepared commercially using raw onions by dehydrating, freeze-drying, vacuum-shelf drying and flow drying. It comprises of many vital nutrients like carbohydrate, fiber, protein, cholesterol, vitamin B-6 and C, manganese, calcium, iron, folate, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium. In addition to this, onion powder is less pungent in taste but its concentrated disposition makes it last for a prolonged time span. Onion powder is widely used in India for several culinary purposes owing to its advantages such as long-shelf life, easy transportation, wide availability and insignificant calorie count. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Indian Onion Powder Market: Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026”, the Indian onion powder market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020.
