Dashi is the essence of Japanese cuisine, adding umami to Japanese dishes. It’s a traditional broth that's the basis for miso soup, noodle soups, and hot pots.
This dashi powder, handmade from 100% frigate tuna (a local fish similar to skipjack tuna), is a quick and convenient way to infuse your meals with Japanese flavors. Simply sprinkle it on your dishes as a seasoning or mix it with water to create an umami-rich, seafood dashi.
The John Mung Company is located in the southernmost port town of Kochi Prefecture on Shikoku Island, a hidden city with a small population and no highways or railways. The company is named after Nakahama “John” Manjirō, a local fisherman turned samurai who is famously known for being one of the first Japanese people to visit America and is credited for his role in Bakumatsu (Opening of Japan). It’s with this same sense of adventure and connecting people worlds apart that the John Mung Company creates their locally-made products.
Suggested uses: Powdered dashi is a quick and convenient way to infuse your meals with Japanese flavors. Simply sprinkle it on your dishes as a seasoning or mix it with water to your desired strength to create a dashi soup stock that can be used in soups, dressings or as a substitute for water to add a touch of umami to your creations. You can even combine it with Marunaka Shoyu's Soy Sauce to create an umami rich pasta sauce that can be topped off with a sprinkle of Hontaka Shichimi Togarashi.
