Organic Planet Organic Whole Wheat Udon Noodles
Udon is a thick, chewy, round, traditional Japanese-style pasta resembling linguine, favored in Kyoto and southern Japan. Perfect served hot in winter or cold in summer. ORGANIC PLANET Traditional Whole Wheat Udon noodles are the smoothest, quickest cooking organic Asian-style whole wheat pasta. While both Udon and Soba can be stir-fried, Udon more readily absorbs the flavor of broths, sauces, and seasonings because of its less assertive flavor. By the same token, when serving Udon with dipping broth, the most popular use of noodles in Japan, the broth is usually less intensely flavored with shoyu and mirin than when using Soba. Also, whereas broth for Soba is traditionally flavored with wasabi, Japanese seven-spice is more commonly used with Udon.

Organic Planet Organic Oriental Noodles are made with Certified Organic Heirloom Grains grown on the vast plains of Inner Mongolia, China's equivalent to North Dakota or Manitoba, in remote areas far from polluting population centers or heavy industry. Such older grain varieties retain location-specific nutritional values that modern hybrid agribusiness varieties have lost. Our pasta is made by a Japanese-Chinese partnership using traditional Japanese noodle production techniques. The Japanese partner company built its own mill with the latest milling equipment on site at the pasta factory north of Beijing. Their master millers trained the Chinese staff on how to grind our flour to order for each run to guarantee freshness.
