Well-rounded nourishment is worth the effort. Wellness and strength are improved with traditional EDEN Condiments. Good food condiments add important nutrients and a pleasing taste. They also enhance the appearance of food dishes.
Spices and herbs share similar uses with condiments, but condiments are added after food is cooked and prepared. Salt and pepper are added during or after cooking. Vinegar, citrus, salt, fruit relishes, chutneys, sauces, and seasonings are also used as condiments.
Condiments contain or give rise to enzymes, peptides, and organic acids that aid digestion. They help to utilize food more efficiently. Condiments like mustard, vinegar, horseradish, sauerkraut, wasabi, and ginger are especially helpful when eating oily, fatty food. Umeboshi plums, salt, and vinegar can be used to stabilize and preserve prepared food. Shoyu and tamari soy sauces are most commonly used as ingredients in cooking but are also used as condiments. Condiments generally provide valuable antioxidants and other unique, sometimes rare, beneficial nutrients.
The nutrition and taste intensity of condiments help satisfy cravings. The five tastes – sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and savory tastes need to be taken in a particular balance for each individual. Ancient teachings about the Five Element Theory say the five tastes energize various organs, systems, and energy meridians. Condiments tend to be strong in one or more of the five tastes. Our bodies will tell us if we can listen when we need more of a particular taste: sweet, sour, bitter, etc. Finding a personal balance of the five tastes helps ensure our wellness. Condiments readily provide a missing or craved taste to the dishes we prepare.
Eden Foods declares every ingredient on the label of the foods we sell. This is an extremely rare practice, but that is not what is commonly believed. Reading labels is not as useful as it used to be. Food labeling rules have changed dramatically allowing much to be hidden. Imitation and adulteration define commercially processed food. Nature’s real, authentic taste is what is necessary and precious.

That done, everything else will take care of itself very nicely at all levels; personal, mental, physical, emotional, societal, economic, political, spiritual, environmental, and interpersonal.
Good judgment gradually improves.
The personal transition from American fare to a healthy diet based around whole grain is no simple task but is fundamentally necessary to accomplish freedom, harmony, and intuition. Considerable experience and knowledge about food, its uses, and benefits are available as a help to those pursuing such a transition.
