What are Wen’s Products?
Wen’s has extended their product range and you get them through online here.
Here are the products I have currently:Wen’s Whitebait Powder (Nova bottle)
Whitebait powder is their first and core product. Whitebait has won many of parents’ heart as it contains the least natural sodium of all with the greatest nutrients, especially its DHA. Suitable as first food to recommend for babies as young as 6months old! Along with the growth, many adults today are also consuming their Whitebait powder to replace unhealthy seasoning.
Wen’s Ikan Bilis Powder (Nova Bottle)
Similar to whitebait, Ikan bilis is known to contain high nutrients as well, in term of its DHA, calcium, protein, etc. Ikan bilis has slightly higher in sodium, however still in a very healthy range to consume from 6months old baby too. You can add in to you daily cooking like soup, vegetable dishes and even fritters like I did.
Wen’s Scallop powder (Nova Bottle)
Scallop powder has been one of our hottest product, because they use fresh scallop. Non salted yet come with natural sweetness. Very good to use as seasoning, it enhances the fragrances of food almost instantly. This is best to go with porridge and vegetable dishes too.
Wen’s Crunchy Whitebait (Pack)
Unsalted baked whitebait has been chosen as healthy snack for both kids and adults. It has the crunchiness while it is less heaty compared to fried anchovies. Many adults find it addictive too. You can use it as topping on top of your fried rice or porridge as well.
Wen’s Scallop floss (pack)
Scallop floss is their latest product, targeting more for adults or big kids at least 3 years old and above. Scallop floss has added sodium, so it makes a good garnish or add on into food, even just with plain rice! You can use it to make sushi roll too. Be creative!
How I Include It in my Daily Life?
I have been using their product close to a month now. It is one of my most-used seasoned ingredients whenever I cook at home. Although we are currently in Phase 2 after circuit breaker, my sisters and I do make it a habit to cook our lunch to bring to work. The powder is very convenient as it is grind into powder. You can create your own recipe and cook it with any dish according to your preference.
My sisters and I try to cut down salt and sugar. Thus, we do not include salt and sugar in our cooking and Wen’s Whitebait powder is very good in the sense that it can serve as a substitute/ replacement for it.
Here are some of the dishes we cooked using their powder. We usually add 1-2 tablespoon of the powder into our cooking.The powder can be used to sprinkle on top of ready meals, soup base and marinades.
Chicken Takikomi Gohan(Japanese Mixed Rice) using Rice Cooker
I find it user-friendly and convenient as I can incorporate into daily cooking not only for the kids but also for the adults too. The powder is very fine and sand-coloured, therefore the taste is light and no lingering after taste. It is consider bland for those who are into strong flavours. But it’s okay because you can add in together with soy sauce to enhance the flavours. I am replacing it with chicken cubes for the soup base now and it is still tasty with added in cooking ingredients. The best part is that you can get all your nutrition. Healthy lifestyle starts from food intake!
