Hiruzen Shokuhin Kako Co., Ltd.

Manufacturing / Tsuyama-shi


Make sure you serve the traditional Japanese health food - Natto - every day.One of the biggest producers of Natto (fermented soy beans) in the Chugoku and Shikoku regions.
We have been putting traditional fermented foods on tables for many years. Recently foods that contain large amounts of vitamin K2 are gaining a lot of attention for their properties which include helping the increase of bone development as well as contributing towards healthy bones and the prevention of osteoporosis. There are also research results that have found that the Jipicolin acid that Natto bacteria produces can reduce the increase in the disease causing colon bacillus.
The enzyme known as Natto Kinarze found in the sticy part of Natto (fermented beans) has blood cleaning properties and can reduce the thick blood that builds up in veins preventing such things as memory loss, atery hardening as well as helping the processes of digestion of protein, fat, fibre and starch. Consequently, natto is known as "Edible Stomach Medicine". The unique smell of natto is one part of its character, and even in this smell are special properties that help the flow of blood in the body.
