Organic kinako - Japanese-style roasted soy powder
It's hard to forget this delicate condiment once you've tasted it! This ally for your recipes is very easy to use, as much for pastries, smoothies and lattes as for your savoury dishes.
This tasty powder is used in many desserts in Japan, especially in traditional pastries, such as warabi mochi. Its light roasted taste is reminiscent of the flavours of peanuts, roasted hazelnuts and buckwheat. This is a great way to add a delicious umami touch to all your preparations!
Very easy to use, it can be incorporated or sprinkled into both sweet and savoury recipes. It will become a must in your kitchen, which you will enjoy putting everywhere!
Kinako has its own sweetening power, thanks to its richness in sweet tasting amino acids. It thus allows you to reduce the use of sugar in your preparations.
This Japanese condiment is produced using the delicate processes of the traditional recipe, from soya grown and processed in France, and packaged in a compostable bag.
Advice for your sweet and savoury recipes
This traditional condiment offers a very wide range of uses for all your dishes and desserts, far beyond its reputation as a basic ingredient in traditional Japanese pastry making.
- Incorporated in your pastries and cakes, pies, pancakes, creams and ice creams, yoghurts, compotes, chocolate truffles or simply sprinkled on before tasting.
- In cereals, smoothies or milk drinks for a tasty, satisfying and protein-rich breakfast
- In savoury preparations, where it will give intensity and body: sauces, croquettes, breads, fritters, marinades. Don't hesitate to sprinkle it on salads and fricassees!
The umami in detail
Kinako has its place among the umami (pronounced oumami) flavours. Generally translated as tasty or delicious, umami is one of the 5 basic flavours, along with salty, sweet, bitter and sour. The umami flavour is a pleasant taste, close to sweet.
Chihiro Masui, Japanese author of many cookbooks, says that "it is the taste of what is good", and this includes cheese, ham, pizza, asparagus, and many other foods we eat every day! More than just a taste in itself, it is a sensation that happens at the level of the tongue, above the palate. Something very palatable, very round, greedy, slightly salty. Something that makes you want to come back to it!
