The Real Co 100% Single Origin Foods have hit H-E-B Stores
Do you know where your foods come from? The Real Co does! The Real Co believes in full transparency. In fact, they are pioneers of the Single Origin Food movement. All their products can be traced directly back to their source.
Launching their products in H-E-B’s across the state last month gives Texas consumers a new option in wise buying. People will know exactly where these products were grown or harvested. Every grain of salt, sugar and rice can be traced back to its source. This information is shared on each and every bag of their products. The Real Co products are vegan, gluten-free, organically grown and Kosher certified. And all products carry the Non-GMO Project Verified seal.
The Real Co line includes Himalayan Pink Rock Salt, White Basmati Rice, Organic Raw Cane Sugar and now the Salt Slab which launched in August.
- The Organic Raw Cane Sugar is raw and alive with natural vitamins and minerals. This pleasantly tasting sweetener has a slight molasses flavor. Rich in calcium, potassium, magnesium and iron this is sweet nutrition like Mother Nature intended. This sugar comes from Assular Farms in the Tayutic Valley in Costa Rica and is 100% natural and organic. You can use this sweetener wherever you would regularly use other sweeteners and it instantly dissolves in hot or cold liquids. This naturally delicious sugar is sold in earth-friendly 16 oz. bags.
- The Real Co Himalayan Pink Rock Salt has 84 active minerals packed into every grain. This unrefined 100% pure salt has an incredible flavor after being washed in Himalayan mountain water. The salt is available in 20 oz. tubs or a salt shaker. Use this pink salt in any recipe you would normally use salt.
- White Basmati Rice is from family farmers in Gujrat Punjab. In this region where glaciers of Kashmer feed the paddy fields the rice is farmed in traditional ways passed down over 500 years. This rice has a wonderful aromatic flavor and compliments every dish it shares the plate with. It is low-GI and pre-biotic, non-GMO and gluten free. Sold in 16 oz bags, it contains no additives, chemicals or pesticides.
- The Real Co’s last product at this time is both beautiful and versatile. This salt slab brick is carved from ancient natural Himalayan Pink Rock Salt. A gourmet tool for any modern kitchen, this slab makes a stunning food presentation piece. Chill it for a charcuterie display at your next party and listen to all the oohs and aahs. Or use it to actually cook food on, giving meats, seafoods and vegetables a superior flavor while adding a dose of added minerals. The slabs are all hand mined in the Khewra Mines of the lower Hamalayas and each is cut by hand.
The Real Co not only offers the customers full transparency of their products from sourcing and method of farming, but also for packaging and delivery. All their packaging is done at “My Cup Counts” an American facility where over 750 special-needs adults are gainfully employed. Products come from the mines and farms mentioned earlier to “My Cup Counts” for packaging directly to supermarket shelves, which I am proud to say include my H-E-B.
So I ask again, do you know where your foods come from? You do if they are from The Real Co!
