Organic English Spinach

Organically planted in Brinchang, Kampung Raja, Lojing Highland in Cameron, the Organic English Spinach is your ideal green to be featured in your daily meals. It is commonly known as “horenso”, which means spinach in Japanese, and is commonly used by the Japanese to prepare dishes such as Japanese Spinach Salad (Horenso no ohitashi). 

Spinach is a versatile vegetable that is featured in various cuisines and cooking methods. From a nutrition perspective, spinach is highly nutritious. It is high in calcium, iron, vitamin A, K, magnesium and more, which makes it a must-have item on our dining table. 

 

Here are some tips: 
1. Consume food rich in vitamin C such as citrus fruits along with your spinach dish in order to enhance the absorption of iron in your body 

2. If you would like to prepare your spinach in a raw salad or power smoothie, blanch it before consuming it to remove the oxalic acid present in the spinach. Oxalic acid is a compound that exists in fruits and leafy vegetables naturally. It tends to bind with the minerals such as calcium in our body, causing reduced absorption of calcium into our body. Therefore, proper food preparation methods and healthy eating patterns are important in providing adequate nutrients for health maintenance. 

Besides direct consumption and being part of the ensemble in various cooking methods, Organic English Spinach is one of the important ingredients in the making of Simply Natural Organic Spinach Noodle, which contains 20% organic fresh spinach puree, the highest amount of certified organic vegetable goodness you can find in noodles in the market.
