ITEM ID: #14427

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.
