Excellent features of sakekasu

・Sakekasu contains many nutritional components.

Sakekasu, which is made from fermented rice and koji when pressing sake, is said to be a treasure trove of nutrients, containing large amounts of amino acids, vitamins, protein, folic acid, and dietary fiber. Ingestion of the nutritional components contained in this sakekasu is known to suppress obesity, improve metabolism, relieve constipation, improve the intestinal environment, and provide beauty effects. In this way, sakekasu is a valuable source of nutrients and a health food.

・Promoting the use of sakekasu is socially important.

Sakekasu is an excellent nutritional food, but its consumption in Japan has been decreasing in recent years. This is said to be because the opportunities to use sakekasu for cooking at home (amazake, kasujiru, kasuzuke) are decreasing. Because sakekasu is a byproduct of making sake, it is difficult to adjust the production amount, and as consumption decreases, a lot of sakekasu is being disposed of. This wastes limited food resources. Increasing consumption of sakekasu so that everyone can match the production volume can be said to be an action that will lead to the implementation of SDG’s

Initiatives towards SDG’s

・Powdering is an effective way to easily store sakekasu at room temperature at low cost. By combining sakekasu powder with high-quality white chocolate, Belair has developed sakekasu chocolate, a health food that can effectively utilize sakekasu powder. At Belair, we consider the reuse of sakekasu to be part of our efforts to achieve SDG’s, and we will continue to work on new ways to use sakekasu.

If you are using it for business purposes, we will be happy to discuss prices, lots, and payment terms.

The culture of sake lees that has been passed down in Japanese sake brewing

Japan is the home of sake, having been made there for 2600 years. Fermented rice is pressed to extract raw sake, and the solid part remaining is the lees (kasu). Lees are made into a drink (amazake) or used as an ingredient in preparing foods.

The lees retain the taste of sake, bringing an umami flavor to food. They also contain healthful fiber, protein, and vitamins.

Bel-Air creates products that contribute to taste and health.

Bel-Air is offering 25% sake lees chocolate as an energy bar of sake lees combined with white chocolate. The lees provide the nutrition of a fermented food, and the white chocolate lends the richness of cocoa solids and a dairy ascendancy that highlights the umami flavor.
