#thursdaythrive Shallots










- Overall, shallots have better nutrition profile than onions. On a weight per weight basis, they have more antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins than onions.
- Research studies show that the allicin found in shallots reduces cholesterol production by inhibiting the HMG-CoA reductase enzyme in the liver cells. Further, it also found to have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal activities.
-  Unlike onions, eschalots tend to perish early. At home, store them in a cool dark place away from moisture and humid conditions where they keep fresh for several days. They can also keep well in the refrigerator; however, you should use them soon after you remove them out of the fridge since they tend to spoil soon if they kept at room temperature for a while.
