A refreshing new way to enjoy the wholesome zest of amazake.

Make your daily dose of nutritiously soothing fermented rice goodness all the more delicious to enjoy, with a touch of refreshing, sharp, sweetness from juicy yuzu citrus. By using the ripest yuzu fruit of the famed Uwaji, Kochi region, the creamy richness of this sweet amazake becomes surprisingly light and uplifting, making it easier to soak up the raw fibre, proteins and nutrients found in this compact, rice koji-activated cup. Naturally sweet through the breakdown of starches so it's simple to drink and cook with, a good shake of this amazake offers ideal nourishment for all ages, with no additives, alcohol or added sugars inside.

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.
