    Eden Foods Udon Wheat Pasta

    EDEN Udon is the thickest of our traditional Japanese pastas. This classic Udon is made using traditional methods by the Tanaka family that has been making udon and soba since 1906, with four generations actively involved in its production. Hard red spring and hard red winter wheat is milled into flour and sifted to remove most bran and germ, which is reserved. Then a good percentage of the reserved bran and germ is added back into the flour to create a smoother, finer textured and more nutritious flour. The flour is combined in a special slow moving mixer with pure water and the finest sea salt. This slow process ensures the best texture and flavor by gradually allowing the gluten in the flour to develop. The dough goes through a series of rollers that repeatedly laminate and press it into thin sheets. A final roller cuts the sheets to the desired shape. Long strands are hung on poles in a drying room with fans, where they are allowed to naturally dry or age for about 50 hours, depending on the season and humidity. This process slowly reduces the moisture content. Dry noodles are hand cut to length, weighed, and packed.

    Mass production factories use bleached, highly processed flour with all of the nutritious bran and germ removed. The dough is mixed in huge quantities at a very high speed and dried very quickly with high heat or microwave. All of this negatively affects the finish texture and nutrition that traditional udon is known for. By contrast the maker of EDEN Udon mixes the dough slowly, in small batches, with a patient drying process that produces noodles with a most appealing color, texture, and flavor.

    Udon is traditionally believed to be a healthy great food for children and the elderly as it is very easily digested and has a relaxing effect on the body.

    EDEN Udon is low in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol free. It is a good source of carbohydrate, dietary fiber, protein, and iron.

    Udon is often served in a hot or chilled broth (dashi) made from nutritious ingredients such as shoyu soy sauce, kombu sea vegetable, shiitake mushrooms, and mirin. Use EDEN Udon as you would any pasta in soups, salads, with your favorite sauce and in stir fries. EDEN Udon cooks in 7 to 10 minutes. Do not add salt to the cooking water, as the noodles are made with salt added to the dough.

    Traditional Cooking Instructions for Japanese Noodles: You can boil the noodles as you would any other pasta or you can use the traditional Japanese style of cooking noodles, which takes a little longer but is well worth the effort. This method is referred to as the shocking method, cold water is added to boiling water several times during the cooking process, creating a more firm, tastier 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 1/2 to 2/3 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. Always rinse Japanese pasta under cold water to remove some sodium and to prevent clumping

    About Eden Foods

    Eden was founded in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1968 by a group of friends who were trying to source good food. They were motivated by their studies of a worldwide phenomenon centered upon macrobiotics and its principles of whole grains, plant based protein, and locally grown food produced without toxic chemicals, etc. Because they couldn't find this kind of food in the grocery stores, they started the Eden Food co-op, placing $200 orders to Erewhon in Boston and Chico-San in California. They also began traveling rural roads to find farmers who were interested in organic farming methods. The Eden co-op became a natural food store offering whole grains and beans, soyfoods, sea vegetables, miso, cereals, vegetable oils, sesame butter, nut butters, and the like.
