Japan-Crafted Amazake: Organic Brown Rice Concentrate
Often referred to as an "IV for drinking" or as a "hangover cure", Amazake is a superfood rich in multiple vitamins and minerals.
This Japan-Crafted Amazake is made from organic brown rice and organic brown rice koji. It is concentrated, non-alcoholic, smooth and shelf-stable. In addition to the great benefits of Amazake, this concentrate has the whole-grain nutrition of brown rice. Besides the health benefits, Amazake has been enjoyed by Japanese people mainly because of its delicious flavor. The sweetness is the result of natural fermentation, and it has complex flavor. This is great on its own or can be enjoyed in various drinks or dishes.
Consuming a small amount of Amazake every day can help your healthy lifestyle. There are countless ways of enjoying Amazake. You can enjoy it straight, add it to your yogurt, granola, make drinks, make smoothies, or simply use as a sweetener (instead of sugar), etc.
"My morning always starts with a small amount of Amazake. I make my breakfast with kefir yogurt, ground black sesame, kinako (roasted soy powder), roasted almonds, fruits, with a scoop of amazake (I keep in a freezer) and mix them in a bowl. It tastes so good and I never get tired of it! This is like my ritual and boost my energy level immediately. After working out, I make a smoothie and always add some Amazake. I also use Amazake for a wide variety of dishes. For hot pot (I add Amazake into the broth), sauces, marinades, etc. When I make whipped cream for dessert, I use Amazake (instead of sugar) to lightly sweeten the cream. I make my own Amazake from scratch with white sweet rice at home for over 10 years, and I was surprised by how rich and complex this Brown Rice Amazake tastes. So, I enjoy both my white Amazake and this one regularly now." - Naoko
