About Organic Shallots

Shallots or eschalots are bulbs in the Allium family of root vegetables. In general, they differ from onions in being smaller, and grow in clusters of bulbs from each plant root system. The bulbs have less sharp in pungency than that of onions and garlic which makes them one of the favourites of chefs all around the world. Shallots are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Manganese, Vitamin C, Folate and Potassium. They are rich source of flavonoid antioxidants such as quercetin, kaempferol...etc. Further, they contain sulphur antioxidant compounds such as diallyl disulfide, diallyl trisulphide and allyl propyl disulfide. These compounds convert to allicin through enzymatic action following disruption of their cell surfaces by actions like crushing, cutting...etc. Research studies show that allicin reduces cholesterol production by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase enzyme in the liver cells. Further, it also found to have antibacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal activities. They are also good in minerals and electrolytes than onions particularly iron, calcium, copper, potassium, and phosphorus. To prepare, trim the ends using paring knife. Then peel the outer 2-3 layers of skin until you find fresh thick pinkish-white whorls. They may be used as a whole or you can slice or cut them into fine cubes/rings depending upon the recipe type in way similar to onions. Shallot butter is a tasty addition to many grilled dishes.

Customer reviews

Wonderful quality.

By Sarah Summers on 28/05/2020

Shallots are fantastic for adding whole to a vegetable casserole. Especially if you like an onion flavour. These are great.
