Hello everyone, recently when I chopped an onion white liquid oozed out of it. The liquid looked like milk. Is this unsafe? I actually threw the onion out. I've chopped several onions before and this is the first this ever happened.

Are you sure there wasn't something on your cutting board or knife? Makes my think like potato starch, or I think even salt could turn it milky. I grind garlic with salt into a paste with the flat of the knife and it gets kinda milky

Probably a juicy onion.

I've had this happen before. I also threw the onion away. Better safe than sorry, and onions are incredibly cheap anyway.
