Recently, I have been learning about The Real Co and discovering some of their wonderful products.  Never heard of The Real Co?  Let me enlighten you!

The Real Food Co was founded in 2013 in Valley Cottage, New York with a direct farm-to-market approach for the organic food industry. The new 100% Single Origin Foods concept supports farms at their source, cuts out the middleman, and delivers directly to the U.S. market, cutting costs of products compared to other manufacturers.  The Real Co, Inc celebrates the change of seasons and Back-to-School with the first certifiable 100% Single Origin products including Himalayan Pink Rock Salt, Organic Raw Cane Sugar, and organically grown White Basmati Rice

The Real Co White Basmati Rice has no additives, no chemicals, no pesticides, no GMO and NOTHING added. The Real Co White Basmati Rice is a “super grain”, containing all essential Amino Acids and folic acid, and is gluten free and cholesterol free. 

The Real Co Organic Raw Cane Sugar has no additives, no pesticides, no chemicals, no GMO and no non-caking agents added. The Real Co Organic Cane Sugar is unrefined sugar, offering the full taste of natural sugar and nothing like the fake, white sugar on many kitchen tables. This sugar contains 17 Amino Acids, 11 minerals and 6 vitamins, as well as antioxidants that may reverse oxidative damage.

The Real Co Himalayan Pink Rock Salt has no additives, no anti-caking agents, no chemicals, and no GMO. This salt packs a whopping 80 plus minerals and elements which are noted for many health benefits including reducing blood pressure, preventing muscle cramping, strengthening bones and more.

The Real Co offers transparency to the consumer, and is developing the first 
Certification of 100% Single Origin Foods in the U.S. The Real Co is available nationwide in numerous stores in every state, also on;
 at The Market in California, Natural Grocers (national), ShopRite, Westerly Natural Market, Kings, Balducci and Healthy Goodness. A full list state by state is available at

My family recently received samples of these three products and we have thoroughly enjoyed all of them.  We prepared the Spicy White Basmati Rice  Bowl with Chicken and Veggies recipe and it was love at first bite.  It was NOT too spicy which was perfect for me.  I'm happy to share the recipe with you.  Enjoy!
