Made from 100% pure sea water

The production area is in a remote island surrounded by beautiful nature, Izu Oshima. This nigari's raw material is 100% pure sea water carried by Kuroshio (Japan Current, a north-flowing ocean current on the west side of the North Pacific Ocean.) We don't use any other nigari or coagulant.

The manufacturing process includes concentrating the seawater with the salt-field type of net, which collects salt and the mother liquid from the collected salt. The contents of this nigari are not only magnesium chloride, but also contain a small number of trace elements in seawater abundantly.

The characteristics of this nigari is not only making your tofu more delicious, but it gives a slightly salty taste, a subtle flavor, and richness from the seawater.
