Possibly: Without a full history and exam impossible to know for sure. The old story is about the little boy who kept knocking his head on the wall because it felt so good when he stopped. Stop eating onion powder.

Probably.: I'd stop it. If you don't have the pain before you use it, and only on the days that you use it you have it, it's probably related. A subtle point: it's unclear if regular onions would do it as well. There may be other fillers or flavor enhancing agents (like msg) in it that also be having a deleterious effect on your GI tract. Good luck!
