What is sake lees

Nutrients of sake lees
Sake lees are rich in ingredients that are useful for beauty and health, and are attracting attention from the intestinal health and diet industries.
The properties of the nutrients contained in sake lees, which are expected to have a positive effect on the body, are as follows. ■ “Resistant protein” that can be expected to improve the intestinal environment and help relieve constipation
Sake lees contains a protein called “resistant protein” that acts like dietary fiber. “Resistant protein” is a nutrient that absorbs fat in the stomach and smoothes stools. It is said that there is an intestinal regulation effect that what you eat passes through the intestines and is discharged.
■ “α-EG”, which increases the collagen density of the skin and can be expected to have a beautiful skin effect
Sake lees contains the umami component “α-EG” that forms the taste of sake. “α-EG” is one of the ingredients contained in sake lees, which is produced by enzymes derived from koji. It is said to have beautiful skin effects such as “making the skin transparent”, “lightening spots”, and “suppressing inflammation that causes skin aging such as wrinkles and sagging”, and increases the collagen density of the skin. ■ “Folic acid” that promotes blood circulation and can be expected to eliminate anemia
Sake lees has about 2.5 times more folic acid than spinach, which has the effect of promoting blood circulation. There is a role to make the blood style of the body better and carry nutrients to every corner of the body.
