Prefecture: Ibaraki Producer: Kozawa Shokuhin Ingredients: Soybeans (non-GMO, domestic) Vegan, Gluten-free, Dairy-free Size:200g Storage: Refrigerate after opening and use as soon as possible.
Okara (soybean pulp) is made from soaked and ground soybeans that have been strained in a cloth bag to make soy milk which is also used to make tofu.The leftover pulp is beige in color and has almost no taste so it can easily absorb the flavors of the other ingredients it’s mixed with.
Typically found dried, this unique okara is a first in the industry to be available raw (which helps to maintain its moisture) without requiring refrigeration before opening. Whole domestic soybeans are used, providing high amounts of fiber, protein, and other nutrients, while being a popular gluten-free substitute for wheat flour with less sugar.
Kozawa Shokuhin uses skills and techniques that have been passed down through generations to make their soy-based products. While other companies cook their soybeans in large batches, Kozawa Shokuhin slowcooks their soybeans in small batches to protect the vegetable protein, resulting in the best flavor.
Suggested uses: Extremely versatile, use as a meat substitute or as a low carb/high fiber substitute for rice or potatoes. Can also be used as a gluten-free alternative to, or in combination with, wheat flour to make breads, cakes, cookies, hamburgers, meatballs and more. Or simply add to soups and smoothies as is.
