Mirin Kasu -Rice Yeast /みりん粕

Posted on 8th December 2015 in Nijiya Brand

It is easy to use for grilled fish or meat! You can also mix with Miso or Mayonnaise to make vegetable dips!
Mirin is made by brewing a mixture of rice, malted rice and distilled rice wine for a couple of month. Marin kasu or Mirin lees are solids left after the mixture was filtered and pressed to make Mirin liquid. Marin kasu is rich in resistant protein which functions similar to dietary fibers. Many studies have shown it removes short-chain fatty acids from the small intestine and promote many medicinal benefits.

肉や魚の漬け焼きに! 味噌やマヨネーズと混ぜて野菜のディップに!
みりんは、もち米、米麹、米焼酎を合わせて熟成させますが、そのみりんを絞った後に残るのがみりん粕です。 みりん粕に含まれる「レジスタントプロテイン」は食物繊維によく似た働きをします。 小腸内の脂質を体外へ排出するため、便秘改善、コレステロールの低下、肥満防止に効果的といわれています。 みりん粕を毎日の健康にお役立てください!

Nijiya original organic salt lemon, now available in stores!

Posted on 3rd February 2015 in Nijiya Brand

Last year all-purpose seasoning, salt lemon caused a big impact in Japan. Salt lemon is commonly used in places such as North Africa and Morocco. You can use this seasoning on meat, fish, and various kinds of vegetables also.

Originally, the whole lemon gets seasoned with salt, but Nijiya’s original salt lemon is in a paste form, so customers can enjoy the flavor of its skin, and it is also easy to use for cooking. Lemon, of course organic! Salt that is used are the mineral-rich natural sea salt. Although salt lemon goes well with any food, we recommend salt lemon sautéed chicken. Since meat is plump and soft, acidity will also be mellow while heating, so it could be enjoyed by those who doesn’t favor lemon as much. Other seasonings will be unnecessary if lemon salt is used. It can also be used in salads and desserts.

昨年日本で大ブームを巻き起こした万能調味料「塩レモン」。 塩レモンとは、北アフリカ、モロッコ発祥の調味料。レモンを塩漬けにして発酵させ、肉や魚の臭みを取ったり、逆に、肉や魚、野菜本来の味を上手く引き出し、味をぐっと引き締めてひとつにまとめる役割をしてくれます。

本来は丸のままのレモンを長期間塩漬けにして、そのエキスを使用しますが、ニジヤオリジナルの塩レモンは、漬け込んだレモンをまるごとペースト状にし、皮の風味まで楽しんでいただけるよう、そして料理に使いやすいように工夫しました。 レモンはもちろんオーガニック!塩もミネラル豊富な天然シーソルトを使用しています。 どんな食材にもぴったりとマッチする塩レモンですが、オススメはチキンの塩レモンソテー。チキンを塩レモンでマリネしてから焼くことで、肉はふっくらと柔らかく、加熱するので酸味もまろやかになり、レモンが苦手な方でもおいしくお召し上がり頂けます。レモン塩だけで他の味つけは不要。他にも、サラダやデザートなどにも使える、まさに万能調味料です。
