A Product Development Story From Our Company Representative
Many Kawashimaya customers drink apple cider vinegar, black vinegar, persimmon vinegar, rice vinegar, etc. to maintain their daily health. I myself drink carbonated water and protein mixed with a little vinegar several times a day.
I especially like persimmon vinegar and apple cider vinegar. If possible, I want to take all the various vinegars that Kawashimaya sells! If you drink vinegar anyway, why not unfiltered nigori vinegar!
Mix 9 Vinegar was planned with that idea in mind. We try to get a good balance of 9 kinds of vinegar with different nutrients at once. All the vinegar used is domestically produced vinegar. More than 80% of the raw material is unfiltered vinegar. At this stage, we have not been able to make all of the vinegar into vinegar due to production volume, but in the near future, we will make all the raw materials unfiltered vinegar so that acetic acid bacteria can be taken as they are. If 9 kinds of vinegar are used as they are, they have a pungent acidity peculiar to vinegar and are difficult to drink, so we add organic lemon juice from Sicily to adjust the taste so that it has a moderately fruity sourness. No preservatives, preservatives, pH regulators, etc. are used.
There is also a type of Mix 9 Vinegar that is sweetened with oligosaccharides, but this is a type that is not sweetened. It may be said that it is a product for non-beginners because it is not sweetened. Personally, I think this type will be more popular with Kawashimaya customers. If you have a habit of drinking vinegar and are looking for something better than the vinegar you are using now, please give it a try and let us know what you think!
