Gluten-Free Ramen

Screen Shot 2014-01-08 at 8.09.19 PM

I'm surprised it's taken this long.

Wrote Florence Fabricant in the New York Times, "The delectable enjoyment of slurping a bowl of ramen has been mostly out of bounds for those whose diets are gluten-free. But now Lotus Foods, a California company that specializes in exotic rice, has introduced rice-based gluten-free ramen with earthy, nutty flavors that are enjoyable even for those who do not avoid gluten. There are three varieties, each based on a different type and color of rice: Jade Pearl, a green organic rice ramen infused with leaves and stems of edible bamboo; black Forbidden Rice ramen; and a toasty-toned ramen of millet and brown rice: Lotus Foods Rice Ramen is $6.59 for four cakes, $35.54 for six packages; also sold with miso soup mix, lotusfoods.com."

Medium is a relatively new website, the brainchild of Twitter co-founder Evan Williams.

It offers good writing and thinking on any number of topics, varied and arcane and close to the heart depending on who you are.

I guarantee you will find something of interest in this list of December 2013's top 100 pieces.
