Dense, crunchy and full of salty, fishy umami flavor, these daships are a type of Japanese chip made from okara (soybean pulp). Okara is the leftover pulp from soybeans which have been filtered to make tofu and soy milk. Traditionally used to make a side dish called unohana, these unique chips combine the nutritional elements of okara with wheat, an umami rich dashi (broth) made from mackerel and bonito powder produced in Numazu, Shizuoka, and a hint of sweetness, which is then lightly fried in non-GMO rapeseed oil.
Yamahira Suisan, part of Mica Corporation, was established in 1946 as a fishery near the port of Numazu on the eastern side of Shizuoka Prefecture and has been making dashi for 70 years form the abundant fish caught in Suruga Bay. In 2006, the owner, a dashi sommelier, was awarded the Medal with Yellow Ribbon for his knowledge and expertise.
