Choose at a store specializing in rice koji and amazake <How to find your favorite amazake ①>

Hello, this is Suzuki, a registered dietitian at Ren MURO Kagurazaka.

During this year's Golden Week as well, many customers visited our store in Kagurazaka.

I am very honored to have many people who chose amazake as a gift for Mother's Day.

We carry about 100 types of kome-koji amazake at our stores and about 80 types at our online shop.

Because it is all non-alcoholic, sugar-free, and additive-free rice malt amazake ,
From children to those who are not good at alcohol, everyone can drink with confidence.

Since there are many types, we often hear from our customers that they don't know what to choose.

Since you are going to drink amazake, you want to find your own favorite amazake.

[How to find your favorite amazake]

Even if you say rice koji amazake, there are various types of amazake handled at our store.

From white rice to millet and brown rice types, there are also types containing fruits and lactic acid bacteria ,

In addition, the presence or absence of grains, the degree of sweetness, and the ratio of koji are also points that differentiate preferences.

<First, choose from 5 types>

Our rice koji amazake can be roughly divided into five types.

① White rice type
②Brown rice/millet type
③ Fruit type
④ Lactic acid bacteria type
⑤ Concentrated type

Even with the same rice koji amazake, the taste will be completely different depending on the type.

If you use these five types as a guideline, it will be easier for you to find the amazake that is close to the image you want.

<Features of each type>

① White rice type

・You can taste the original sweetness and umami of rice malt amazake.

②Brown rice/millet type

・Aroma peculiar to brown rice and cereals ・Rich in dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals ・Easy to consume brown rice and cereals

③ Fruit type

・Fruit flavor and sourness make it easy to drink ・You can enjoy it like a dessert ・Good for amazake beginners and children

④ Lactic acid bacteria type

・ Mild sweetness with added sourness ・ Yogurt-like taste ・ Health benefits of lactic acid bacteria can be expected

⑤ Concentrated type

・Perfect to enjoy with yogurt or cereal ・Easy to adjust the sweetness and thickness to your liking

In addition, the presence or absence of grains, the degree of sweetness and aroma of koji, and the production area are also important points when choosing.

We'll talk more about this next week!
