Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta by Eden Foods

Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta - 8 oz. (230 g)

Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta is made of North American family golden amber durum organic wheat and a touch of Eden foods Sea Salt. Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta Pasta begins with freshly milled, Eden selected grain. Flour is kneaded with pure water and fine sea salt. Salt binds the dough, enhances flavor, and preserves the dried pasta. Dough is rolled out and folded onto itself eight times, then cut to length. Long strands of noodles are lifted onto racks, rolled into drying rooms, and allowed to dry slowly for up to two days depending uponckness and ambient temperature/humidity. Dutifully tended, they are hand-cut and packed when perfectly finished. Patience and a no-shortcut approach create superior texture, flavor, and ultimately well nourished well-being.

"Best Food For Women"
Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta was selected in Women's Health magazine's "125 Best Packaged Foods for Women" November 2010. Women's Health said of this top choice in the "Pasta & Rice" category, "With 15% of your daily dose of iron, zinc, and niacin, plus 20% of your day's thiamin, phosphorus, and magnesium, EDEN's Japanese noodle puts others to shame." ... "No need to fear these carbs." Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta received the highest rating of all the foods, in all of their categories.

Ecological Packaging
All Eden traditional organic Japanese pasta is packed in boxes made from recycled and recyclable paperboard, one of the most environmentally friendly packages available. According to the 100% Recycled Paperboard Alliance (RPA100.com), "Fourteen trees are saved for each ton of paperboard converted to 100% recycled paperboard. Trees are critical to the sequestration of CO2 (a greenhouse gas) in North America. For each ton of paperboard converted to 100% recycled paperboard, an equal amount of recovered fiber has been diverted from municipal landfills. Production of 100% recycled paperboard uses 50% less energy than virgin grades of paperboard, thus significantly reducing greenhouse gases released into the environment." Commercial pasta is highly refined chemically treated flour, processed in minutes through teflon dies and ultra high heat or microwave drying resulting in inferior flavor, diminished nutrition, and dubious value.Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta is a wise choice. Light, delicious, and nourishing because it's made with patience, care, the best grain, and handling that enhances its value.

Nutrition Facts
According to FDA, "Low fat diets rich in fiber-containing grain products, fruits, and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, a disease associated with many factors."Eden Foods Organic Whole Grain Udon Pasta is low in fat and an excellent source of healthy fiber, 5 grams or 20% daily value (DV) per serving. Also, "Diets low in sodium may reduce the risk of hypertension or high blood pressure, a disease with many factors." Eden Foods Organic 100% Whole Grain Udon Pasta  is low sodium and an excellent source of thiamin B1 and magnesium. It is a good source of protein, iron, niacin B3, zinc, and copper. Scientists at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University say, "Whole grains help regulate blood sugar by slowing down the conversion of complex carbohydrates into sugar. In fact, low-glycemic index foods such as whole grains reduce hunger and can help to control weight." Scientists at the Agriculture Research Service completed a study of more than 2,000 people concluding, "at least three or more servings of whole grain foods everyday could reduce the chances of developing metabolic syndrome - a condition marked by a combination of abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, poor blood sugar control, low HDL 'good' cholesterol and high blood fats."

Eden traditional Japanese organic pastas are delicious, strengthening and nourishing. With so many different flavors of Eden pastas (and beans, sea veggies, condiments, and much more ... ) you can stock your pantry and make healthy meals easily with satisfying variety. Eden Foods Organic 100% Whole Grain Udon Pasta is cut very similar to linguini. It is versatile and ideal with dashi - shoyu soy sauce kombu noodle broth, in salads, stir-fries, and casseroles, and with your favorite sauce.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Does Eden use any chemical additives, preservatives, or chemical or Genetically Engineered derived 'processing aides' in any of its foods? No. They choose not to and make sure all ingredients are natural too.
  • Are any Eden Foods or ingredients subjected to food irradiation? No Eden foods or ingredients are ever irradiated. Eden banned irradiated food on August 13, 1988.
  • Are all Eden Foods certified organic? Approximately 80 percent of Eden Foods are double certified organic, both by USDA NOP certifiers and by their Chairman and president. Some Japanese Imported and Macrobiotic specialty products, as well as olive oil, are not certified organic, even though they are grown and processed in the traditional manner and are the finest we can source.
  • What percentage of Eden Foods are United States and North American grown? Approximately 75 percent of Eden Foods are organically grown on more than 360 family farms of North America with over 80,000 acres of vibrant farmland, and growing every year.
  • Do any Eden Foods contain dairy derivatives, eggs, gelatin, or animal by products? None of their foods contain dairy derivatives, eggs, gelatin, or animal derived by-products. Their teabags are crimped sealed and are not glued. Their probiotic supplement, Bifa-15, does contain lactose and gelatin. Eden Bonito Flakes (fish flakes) is the only non- vegetarian, non-vegan food that we offer.
  • Does Eden employ Quality Control measures to ensure safe and consistent food? Yes. Every food offered by Eden is subject to numerous detailed and stringent Quality Control (QC) procedures. Eden's United States facilities are inspected and rated by strict third party AIB International inspectors. Eden's consistent high ratings reflect a deep, company wide commitment to food safety, sanitation, and HACCP management programs. One example is Edensoy, with over 240 quality control checks to ensure a consistent and safe product. In addition to the guards and monitors that are part of the machines, a package of soymilk is pulled from production every half hour and thoroughly tested in every regard to be sure it meets our stringent standards.
  • Why does Eden carry foods that are kosher? Because, due to their stringent purchasing disciplines they already were, so they had them certified. And yes, Eden is committed to offering certified kosher and pareve foods. In order for any food product to be certified kosher, its actual production must be Rabbinically supervised. The Rabbi visits on a regular basis. He inspects the machines prior to production and verifies that every step required by Jewish Law has been observed and fulfilled. Not all Eden foods are kosher, but 97 percent are; and all kosher foods offered by Eden are certified and marked with a Circle-K on the package.

Who Says It's Organic?
In 1988 after twenty years of doing organic certification ourselves, Eden adopted third-party organic certification. Eden farm and factory systems, and manuals were guiding and became bedrock for the new organic certifiers. Eden discerningly selects certifying agencies for third-party certification. Their primary is the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA), yet they always maintain complete responsibility for ensuring organic authenticity. It is far more than paperwork to them. They know their growers well. They use third-party certifiers who work with Eden standards, require an audit trail, and provide deep transparency. Knowing what motivates their growers is essential to them before they can have confidence in their food.

Regrettably, organic food no longer has to be natural food. There are hundreds of chemicals and 'allowables' permitted in the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) that Eden avoids. With USDA organic certification requirements vary a lot, all the way to nonexistent. Accountability is rare, especially for imported food. Eden does not consider food 'certified organic' unless they have completed thorough due diligence regarding its authenticity. The same is true for their non-genetically engineered claims. Eden organic food meets and exceeds requirements for the USDA organic seal, but they do not use it because it does not reflect Eden standards, in spirit or in practice.

GEO Free Assurance Since 1993
Since 1993 Eden has diligently created a system that totally avoids genetically engineered food. The GEO industry and USDA want us to believe commercial scale GEO free food is impossible, as they've thoroughly (and intentionally) polluted the food supply. Eden foods are proof that GEO free food is doable. They have the records, tests, and foods that demonstrate it.

The Non-GMO Project (The Project) was created by industry members from all of its sectors in the U.S.A. and Canada. The Project works to provide consumers and makers a third party non-GMO verification program through all levels of the supply chain, providing verified non-GMO alternatives to the public. Eden Foods' president, Michael Potter is one of eleven governing members of its board of directors who have been involved in initiating, funding, and writing standards for The Project. The Project is North America's first independent non-GMO verification program utilizing on-site facility audits, document and systems reviews, and DNA PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing of all inputs at risk for GMO contamination.

Irradiation Free
Realizing that powerful forces were determined to make food irradiation a common practice, Eden first communicated with our customers about this issue and established a Zero Tolerance policy for irradiated foods in 1988. Today, as irradiation is an ever-increasing threat to human rights and health, Eden's position remains Zero Tolerance. Rigorous selection and screening down to every herb, spice, and seasoning provides us 100% confidence that no EDEN food or ingredient is, has been, or ever will be subject to irradiation. They encourage your vigilance and activism.

Kosher
Eden has managed certification of its kosher foods since 1982. Today 91% of EDEN foods are kosher. Eden chose the Organized Kashrus Laboratories of Brooklyn, New York and their mark because of their reputation for meticulous attention to detail dating back to 1935. They began this in 1982 after realizing our natural foods were already, by virtue of our selection criteria, completely qualified for kosher status.

43 Years Ago…
Eden Foods began in Ann Arbor in the late 1960s with friends sourcing natural food. Youth motivated by a study of a worldwide phenomenon centered upon macrobiotics: eating a diet of whole grain and seasonal local plant foods that are not nutrient depleted and without toxic chemical adulteration. Natural foods were simply not available at the time, so they started the Eden food co-op to bring them in. Their initial $200 orders to Erewhon in Boston and Chico-san in California were well received and caused a local stir. This lead to co-op members traveling rural roads, knocking on doors looking for farmers to grow food using organic methods.

The Eden co-op grew into a natural food store offering whole grains, beans, soyfoods, sea vegetables, miso, cereals, vegetable oils, seed and nut butters, and the like. It expanded adding a cafeteria, bakery, and books, and became known as the Eden Deli. It was one of very few places in the U.S.A. where you could get natural, organic, macrobiotic food. Folks came from near and far. Health food stores called asking to get the foods Eden was carrying. An EDEN brand began to take shape.

In 1972 Eden opened its first warehouse and established relations with artisan Japanese traditional food makers. Imports of sea vegetables, teas, miso, shoyu, umeboshi plums, kuzu root starch, rice vinegar, rice bran pickles, mirin, etc. followed, and this solidified Eden as an important natural food source for the United States and Canada.

Constantly Reinvesting
Eden is the oldest natural and organic food company in North America and the largest independent manufacturer of dry grocery organic foods. They are deeply rooted in Michigan about twenty miles southwest of Ann Arbor. It is here they manage grower relations, manufacturing, trucking, quality control, customer and retailer services, marketing, import/export, accounting, databases and websites. Over 95% of EDEN foods are sold in natural food stores, co-ops, and supermarkets via traditional natural and grocery distribution channels. Web site, employee, and wholesale sales make up the remainder.

Eden tracks the environmental impact of its food upstream with suppliers, through company operations, and downstream monitoring all its social impacts. Energy consumption and waste are tracked using custom in-house tools. In 2009 Eden Foods was selected as the best food company in the world, and the third best company overall by The Better World Shopping Guide. They acknowledged Eden's outstanding record in social and environmental responsibility. The company earned A+ and A ratings in ten food categories.

Locally Grown Food
Eden buys all food from, and pays farms directly getting more cash to them. Most is grown a few miles to a few hundred miles from home base. In the Midwest they source wild rice, beans, spelt, soybeans, cabbage, apples, tart cherries, strawberries, pastry wheat, and tomatoes. Other North American family farm organic food includes grains from the Midwest and Western high plains; almonds, pistachios, and brown rice are from California; flax and mustard seed are from Saskatchewan; dulse is from New Brunswick. …too many to list here.

Cooking and packaging centers around home too. EDEN prepares 70% of its items at headquarters: fresh milled whole grain flours, gomasio sesame salts, unrefined vegetable oils, vinegars, soy sauces, roasted almonds and seeds, packaged snacks, whole grains, sea salt, popcorn and other grain. EDENSOY is made twelve miles east at an affiliate company we founded to bring its manufacture from Japan to Michigan. Eden Organic Pasta Company is in Detroit. Meridian Foods cannery for organic beans, refried beans, rice and beans, and chilies is in east-central Indiana. EDEN organic udon and soba noodles are made at Sobaya Company in Montréal, PQ. Some EDEN food comes from afar: extra virgin olive oil from Spain, high altitude white and red quinoa from the Andes mountains, chamomile from Egypt, and green tea and traditional healthy food from Japan. The soybeans in their miso and soy sauces are non-GMO, U.S.A. Midwestern organic.

Suggested Use

Traditional Cooking Instructions for Japanese Noodles:
Udon and Soba can be boiled just like other pasta or you can use the traditional Japanese cooking method which takes a little longer but is well worth it. This method is called the shocking method, cold water is added to boiling water several times during the cooking process creating a firmer, al dente noodle. For this method place 2 quarts of cold water in a large pot, cover, and bring to a boil. Remove the cover, add the noodles, and stir to prevent sticking. As soon as the water comes to a boil again, add enough cold water to stop the water from boiling (about a 1/2 cup). Bring to a boil again, and add cold water again. Repeat one or two additional times until the noodles are done. Periodically check the noodles by removing a strand and biting or cutting it in half. If the center of the noodle strand is white and the outside is darker, the noodles are not done. When the center of the noodle is the same color as the outside, and the noodles are firm yet tender to the bite they are done. Rinse cooked Udon and Soba noodles under cold water. This lowers sodium and prevent clumping.

    This product has less sodium than some udon pastas. There is a huge difference in the amount of sodium in various products, which surprised me.

    This is great in the macrobiotic dishes I sometimes make. You can also use this pasta in place of regular spaghetti dishes.
