The crying of a gourmet/chef as he hacks onions in the kitchen could be a relic of past times because of one Japanese organization, which says it has created a tear-less onion successfully.

Researchers say they have figured out how to cripple the creation of an effective substance an onion discharges as the blade cuts into it, eliminating the pungent vapor that is responsible for producing tears into the eyes.


House Foods Group said in a press discharge that they bombarded the brown bulb with irradiating ions in a process that drastically reduces the level of a certain enzyme that is key to this process.

A representative said no choice had yet been made on whether they would market their new tear-less onions.
