Full bodied and delicious.

Swap out the fruit juice and soft drink for something just as tasty and with a whole lot more nutrition with Gekkeikan's amazake. This non-alcoholic amazake is made from fermented rice and contains more fibre than standard amazake drinks. Enjoy as a nutritious dessert or snack, or add to other foods as a natural sweetener.

ITEM ID: #12850

Background

Amazake is a Japanese beverage that has existed for hundreds of years. It is made by adding koji (the same fermenting agent used to make sake, soy sauce, and miso) to cooled whole grains of rice and allowing the mixture to incubate. During this process the enzymes in the koji break down the carbohydrates in the rice, turning them into simple sugars and causing the solution to become naturally sweet. For more traditional Japanese beverages, take a look at japancentre.com's Drinks section.

I haven't had this yet as I'm saving it for hinamatsuri but it looks like a good product.
