NinjaFoods begins development of next-generation snacks using seaweed ingredients
Utilize traditional Japanese ingredients such as seaweed and kelp in plant-based food

Sydecas Co., Ltd. (reading “Sidecas”, Kakogawa City, Hyogo Prefecture, CEO: Masahiro Yoritama, hereinafter “our company”), which develops the next-generation food tech business NinjaFoods, is a traditional Japanese food such as seaweed and kelp. We will start a
next-generation healthy snack development project using seaweed that is commonly used. We will explore new possibilities for Japanese food by combining it with NinjaPaste, which is derived from konjac, our core ingredient.

■ Situation surrounding seaweed proteins
The global market for seaweed protein is projected to reach
approximately US$0.46 billion in 2020 and US$1.1 billion in 2027, and is projected to grow by more than 13.2% in 2021-2027.
■ NinjaFoods, a next-generation food business that goes beyond all food restrictions
There are many people in the world who have dietary restrictions such as diabetes, high blood sugar, obesity, and allergies.
Therefore, we focused on konnyaku, an ancient Japanese plant-based healthy food. We aim to realize “a world where everyone can enjoy delicious food without restrictions” by utilizing “NinjaPaste”, a material that keeps konjac paste in a unique technology, as a next-generation ingredient.
■ Next-generation konjac material NinjaPaste
NinjaPaste is a next-generation konnyaku material that has succeeded in keeping regular konnyaku in a paste form without completely solidifying it. By mixing it with other materials, it reinforces the target fibers and forms konnyaku gel, realizing strong binding molding. Therefore, it is possible to mold protein bars that take advantage of the goodness of the ingredients without using wheat gluten, eggs, or starch syrup.

■NinjaFoods open innovation
If we only monopolize NinjaPaste and provide the final product, it is impossible to realize the world we aim for, “a world where everyone can enjoy delicious food without restrictions.”
Therefore, we believe that by providing NinjaPaste itself, which is the core material, to the outside, and by organizing and opening up knowledge about its utilization, it will be possible to make all kinds of food more flexible.
Currently, we are promoting the following co-creation projects with various external companies.
・ A protein bar project (https

In anticipation of the 2025 Osaka/Kansai Expo, we are disseminating various products such as SDGs diapers to the world. ■ Overlook prevention alert ・NinjaFoods official LINE: https://lin.ee/9pzLIjk For early adopters who want to try NinjaFoods products at a great price before anyone else, we will notify you as soon as possible when new products are released.
