The greatest damage to well-being in America was not from natural disaster, war, or pollution, but from events that took place about 100 years ago. It was caused by adoption of a monopolistic system of milling grain in the cheapest and easiest way to market it. This removed all the germ and bran; almost all the fiber, fatty acids, oils, vitamins, minerals, and dozens of essential nutrients and important antioxidants, for the sole purpose of extending shelf life. Replacing whole grain, the proper core of human sustenance, with denatured empty carbs like white flour and polished grains has been eroding our civilization and well-being ever since.
Fortunately, whole grain is making a comeback with a special interest in the once revered staple grains of the Americas like EDEN Quinoa, Popcorn, and Wild Rice. These and other whole grains are resurging as absolutely essential to good health.
Whole grain makes us fit, dimensionally, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Its helps a body burn 25% more calories per day. Scientists at USDA's Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University say, “Whole grain helps regulate blood sugar by slowing the conversion of complex carbohydrates into sugar. In fact, low-glycemic index foods such as whole grains reduce hunger and can help control weight.” USDA's Dietary Guidelines suggest three servings of whole grain per day. Even the FDA recognizes (guardedly) whole grain — “Diets rich in whole grain and other plant foods, low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers.” In other words, we must eat whole grain to be healthy.
All EDEN whole grains are cream-of-the-crop and maintain integrity of all their nutritional components from whole grain's three main parts: endosperm, germ, and bran.
EDEN 100% whole grains are most appropriate nourishment, guaranteed to please, purify, strengthen, and they deliver long-lasting beneficial satisfaction to those who enjoy them. EDEN Quinoa, Popcorn, and Wild Rice are packaged in resealable, protective, standing pouches for freshness. They are easy to use and very versatile, Gluten Free and pareve.
