Cipolla onions are just another variety of onion. Since onions are a vegetable, there is every reason to include cipolla onions in your diet.
Change It Up
If you get tired of white or yellow onions, throwing in some cipolla onions for a change of pace can keep your diet fresh and varied. They’re especially appetizing thrown on a salad.
All vegetables are important, but onions have something special. They’re sulfur-rich vegetables: a class of vegetables we should be sure to eat, in addition to our leafy greens and fresh fruit. Sulfur-rich vegetables (such as onions) have been studied for their possible anti-cancer effects, as well as their ability to lower inflammation and improve glucose tolerance (source).
