“White azuki bar” product features
1. “Azuki Bar” using rare white azuki beans that are also used in high-end Japanese sweets
White azuki is difficult to cultivate, so the production volume is extremely low, and in 2020, the white azuki planted area in Hokkaido is less than 0.5% of the total azuki. White adzuki beans are prized as a raw material for high-end Japanese sweets due to their color and strong flavor. This time, Imuraya used white adzuki beans for ice cream for the first time. We use 100% white azuki beans and slowly cook them from the raw beans using our original “Azuki Bar” method to create a flavorful azuki ice cream with good grains. Please enjoy the taste of white adzuki beans, which is rarely seen in distributed products.
2. Because it is a simple ice cream with only white adzuki beans, sugar, and salt, we are particular about the ingredients and use only Hokkaido products.
All the ingredients are made in Hokkaido, and it is manufactured with a simple combination of white adzuki beans, sugar, and salt. The refreshingly sweet sugar and mellow Okhotsk salt bring out the mellow sweetness and elegant flavor of the white adzuki beans, bringing out the original deliciousness of the carefully selected ingredients. “White Azuki Bar” and “Hokkaido Azuki Bar” Recommended Arrangements The “White Azuki Bar” and “Hokkaido Azuki Bar” are made with only three simple ingredients: adzuki beans, sugar and salt, and are characterized by the flavor and graininess of azuki beans. When heated in the microwave, they can be enjoyed as warm “zenzai”. . Please enjoy the arrangement for the coming season when it gets cold.
■ How to make
Place the azuki bar with the stick in a mug, heat in the microwave at 600W for 1 minute and 30 seconds, and stir lightly with the stick to complete.
