Using the best of konjac characteristics, we have been working on developing processed food and ready-made meals. Konjac is rich in fiber and helps lower blood sugar level and blood cholesterol level. It strengthens immune system and is suitable for a diet as a health food. We are using all of our experience and knowledge we have acquired over years to develop products that suit the modern diet.
We have products made from fresh konjac potatoes, which have rather crispy texture and hold flavor well. Musubi-Shirataki, shredded konjac, in a bundle tied in a knot, is one of them and is hand-tied in our plant.
In 1993, we developed a freezable konjac product for the first time in our line of business and enabled certain Japanese dishes to become available as frozen food.
For instance, using a mere 0.1% use of konjac, as in konjac jelly, can give it a totally different texture. It reacts to alkali and with some heat it becomes solid konjac as we know it today.
We are broadening our view on konjac and finding more uses of it. By establishing development section together with production section, we have put our flexible system in which both development and production stands as a whole on a firm footing. We have beentrying to find possibilities with konjac as a material.
