Beyond Taste : The Nutritional Story Behind Yuzu Omakase's Koji-Infused Dishes


The Koji Advantage

Koji, a type of fungus (Aspergillus oryzae), has been a staple in Japanese cuisine for centuries. It serves as a fermenting agent, imparting a rich umami flavor to various dishes. However, its significance extends beyond taste, as koji brings a host of nutritional benefits to the table.

  • Enhanced Digestibility

Koji fermentation breaks down complex proteins and starches into simpler, more digestible forms. This process aids in nutrient absorption and promotes gut health, ensuring that you derive maximum nutritional value from your dining experience.

  • Rich in Enzymes

Koji is a powerhouse of enzymes that facilitate various physiological processes in the body. These enzymes not only support digestion but also contribute to metabolic functions, promoting an overall sense of well-being. Boosted Nutrient Content:
