Kinako can be thought of as a natural Japanese sweetener. The process of roasting the soy beans brings out an extra sweet flavour that has been used in Japan for centuries as a sweet element in cooking, being utilised nowadays in both traditional and more modern sweet foods. For a great range of kinako and other Japanese flours, take a look at's Flour & Panko section.
