Do Sweetie Sweets have any special nutritional value?

How would I use a Sweetie Sweet onion?
Sweet onions contain more natural sugars and moisture, and less pyruvic acids, than typical yellow onions so they are best eaten raw, on sandwiches and in salads. Gently grilling or caramelizing brings out the sweetness even more but be careful not to overcook or you’ll lose the delicate taste and texture.
