Fermented plant extract paste using 105 kinds of vegetables and fruits that support health from within the body.

Characteristics
  • 1. Ingredients

    Using over 105 different “whole” plant ingredients which are domestically produced.

    We use over 105 different kinds of "whole" 100% fresh, seasonal, and domestically produced leafy vegetables, root vegetables, fruit vegetables, fruits, beans, various mushrooms, grains, seaweed, and herbal medicines. In order to utilize the maximum nutrition and health benefits of the ingredients, the skins and seeds are used in their entirety. This allows for better absorption of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols that are often lacking.

  • 2. Fermentation Starter

    plant extracts are fermented and aged for over 3 years using Yamato Kouso's traditional fermentation starter to create JUKU.

    Our traditional fermentation starter is a treasure trove of Koji, yeasts and lactic acid bacterium that have been carefully selected out of a large number of microorganisms following many years of fermentation.

  • 3. Absorption

    Fermentation and aging makes it easier for the body to absorb nutrition. Ingesting ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, seaweed, and grains does not mean that all the nutrients of the ingredients can be absorbed. This is because the cells of the matereial are covered with a hard cell wall that cannot be degraded by human digestive enzymes. The nutrients of the materials and nutritional molecules such as vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols are found inside the cell wall, bit humans cannot digest and absorb the nutrients in the cell wall unless they can get inside. In the process of fermentation and curing, microorganisms and enzymes change the nutrients of the material into finer and more nutritious ones while destroying the cell walls. Through fermentation and curing, JUKU is born, the form that makes it easy for us to digest and absorb the ingredients rich in nutrients to the maximum extent.

    * During the fermentation and aging process, microorganisms and enzymes break apart cell walls to efficiently extract polyphenols and other nutrients that are trapped within the ingredients.

    * The effective microorganisms create various fermentation products, including vitamins, organic acids, short-chain fatty acids, peptides, and oligosaccharides.

  • 4. Rich and strong

    No water is added.
    Because no water is added, the nutrition of the material is densely packed. Finished your meal with a tasty, firm and delicious paste that balances refreshing acidity and sweetness.
