Mikan (also known as unshu mikan or Japanese mandarin orange) is a speical Japanese citrus characterized by their low acidity and sweet yet subtly tangy taste. With a 450-year history, the Arita region of Wakayama Prefecture is a major producer of local mikan. These Arita mikan are grown on the Sowa Orchard which was started by seven mikan farmers in 1979.
While most common mikan juices are made by squeezing the tangerine with the peel, Sowa Kajuen first removes the peel to capture the natural sweetness of the juice and pulp, without any bitterness. The thin peel is then pureed and added back to create a fibrous, smoothie-like texture. It’s then combined with a splash of domestic yuzu juice and a hint of sugar and thickened with agar and konjac to create a delicious citrus smoothie, just like mom would make! Sowa Kajuen engages in everything from producing, processing and selling mikan while supporting the local community. They received the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries Award in 2014 in recognition of their longstanding efforts.
