Q: Will nutritions received from Urban Farm be
different from eating fresh vegetables?
A: Eating fresh vegetable is the best way to
receive nutrition as in its natural form. However, our busy lifestyle
does not allow us much time to deal with preparing fresh vegetables. We
then created a new product - Urban Farm- Instant Vegetables to help you
who wish to stay healthy to have vegetables handy when you need it. We
call this concept “Your Healthy Lifestyle at Anytime”.
Let’s look at this topic more closely. Nutrition
from vegetable comes in 3 groups: Fiber, Minerals, and Vitamins. Fiber
and minerals do not go away after heat treatment or cooking, so there
is no different between eating it dried or fresh. Vitamins are found in
2 groups: vitamins that dissolved in water, like vitamin C and those that
dissolved in fat, like vitamin A or beta-carotene. The first group will
go away with heat like when we cook vegetables in pot or pan. The latter
group will not go away with heat, so dried-vegetables are as good as those
in fresh form. Our packaging is clean and keeps the product away from
air and light. This way you can be sure that the product is good when
it reaches you.
Q: Will the taste of vegetables change in Urban Farm?
A: Urban Farm- Instant Vegetables is 100% natural.
We do not add salt, sugar, MSG, food additive, or preservative. Once Instant
Vegetables are cooked, like in rice, you will like the taste and aroma
of real vegetables.
Q: Instead of cooking or boiling, can we just add
Urban Farm- Instant Vegetables into hot water?
A: This is a good question. Our product is
designed for a mixture of 3-6 vegetables to be cooked and ready at the
same time, so cooking in a rice cooker or boiling in hot water are the
way we intended. By adding hot water, the heat from the water may not
be enough to have everything cooked thoroughly.
Q: Can we use fresh vegetables to cook with rice
in a cooker instead of Urban Farm?
A: Yes and No. Yes, you can add it but the
vegetables will become mushy. No, if you aim to have a nice and colorful
looking rice to serve, using dehydrated vegetables is a better way. Here
is why. Vegetables hold a lot of water content in them and when cook with
rice it its dried form, by the time the rice is ready the vegetables will
become too spongy. Urban Farm- Instant Vegetables has been dehydrated
and cooking with rice will allow both to be properly cooked at the same
