Scientists have created the tear-less onion of your dreams – The Washington Post

Here’s one modified food I wouldn’t mind! (as long as it’s affecting just this enzyme and not all the good stuff..)

The smart people over at House Foods Group said they have come up with a way to root out the onion’s tear-inducing powers for good.

Researchers with the Japanese company have figured out how to weaken the enzymes that play a key role in giving the onion its eye-burning quality. They were able to do that by bombarding the onion bulb with irradiating ions, according to the Agence France-Presse.

The result is an onion that is less pungent and doesn’t leave a not-so pleasant odor on hands or your breath, according to the Wall Street Journal.
