You can take in all the "flavor" and "nutrients" unique to brown rice as it is. It has a rich flavor and is recommended for smoothies.

  • No sugar/non-alcoholic

▼Recommended for people who…

  • Want to have beautiful skin
  • To be energetic (to relieve fatigue, to counteract summer fatigue)

Amazake made with koji is non-alcoholic. It is so nutritious that in the Edo period it was used as a baby food and curative food, and in modern times it is called a "drinking infusion".

It contains all the essential amino acids and is rich in vitamin B group. It is also high in glucose, the only food for the brain, so it is recommended between work or study sessions or as a breakfast substitute.
*The sugars in amazake, with its high health benefits, are easily absorbed and altered. Be careful not to drink too much.

▼How to drink and recipe

  • Drink a small glass of amazake every day as it is!
  • Mix with hot water or soy milk and add a little rubbed ginger.
  • 2 parts amazake, 1 part soymilk (or hot water), a little ginger, and cinnamon to taste
