How Mom strengthens family ties
MANILA, Philippines - Beautiful family relationships are built around the dining table — where a mother’s home cooking is enjoyed and savored by her loved ones. The joy on her husband and children’s faces as they partake of the hearty meal she prepared brings her instant happiness, too. Indeed, mother knows best when it comes to great cooking.
Mother’s Best, manufactured by HDR Foods Corp., is a Philippine brand known for its line of prepared and ready-to-use condiments, marinades and sauces that bring out the distinct taste, aroma and quality of homemade cooking. Founded in 1977 as a small-to-medium-sized enterprise, Mother’s Best has then added a roster of products to complement the hectic lifestyle of modern working people.
The saying “Mother knows best” can best describe the philosophy behind the line of products under the brand Mother’s Best. The brand name was not only inspired by the mother of the founding members but the mission was to help the young urban mother do her cooking chores with convenience through the use of cooking condiments and ingredients.
For example, a dish becomes more sumptuous with the use of Mother’s Best Oyster Sauce. It is a richly flavored, dark brown sauce made from the finest oyster extract. It is an all-purpose seasoning that brings out the flavor of many savory foods. Use it as a seasoning for stir-fried vegetables, meat, seafood and noodle dishes. It is also perfect for dipping, marinating, stir-frying or as a sauce base.
This condiment comes with healthy benefits. Oysters are not only delicious, but they’re also one of the most nutritionally well-balanced foods. They’re high in protein, low in fat and loaded with essential minerals.
In fact, the National Heart and Lung Institute of the US suggests oysters for low-cholesterol diets. Oysters are also an excellent source of Vitamins A, B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), C (ascorbic acid) and D (calciferol). They are the most natural source of zinc, which is crucial to maintaining a strong immune system, as well as calcium, copper, iodine, iron, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus.
