All Natural Japanese Ketchup, 8.46 oz
Produced by Ikeichi Saika-en based in Kochi Prefecture, the Ike Tomato is well regarded for its high sugar content (about 9-12°Bx), well-balanced acidity, firm flesh, and rich aroma. This premium tomato is the main ingredient of All Natural Japanese Ketchup. The company strives to grow this premium tomato by using no herbicides, limiting the amount of watering, enriching soil with natural fertilizers made from bonito, tuna, kombu kelp, and shiitake mushrooms, and allowing the ripening to take three times as long. One package of All Natural Japanese Ketchup contains 15 Ike Tomatoes, capturing their rich sweetness, acidity, aroma, umami, and nutrition. Not only that, it is simmered to a much higher sugar content (about 20°Bx) in a vacuum pot at low temperatures, concentrating the fresh flavor. No artificial flavorings, sugar or preservatives are used. It can be enjoyed as is and also mixed into cooking. However you use it, you’ll notice the difference from the very first spoonful.
You can use this premium ketchup for French fries and omelets as is, just like any other ketchup. But the ketchup’s exquisite flavor truly upgrades the taste of your dishes. It’s also great for mixing with other sauces such as tomato sauce for pasta, meatballs, and pizza as well as barbecue sauce and shrimp cocktail sauce. If you cook stir fry or fried rice, try this ketchup as a seasoning. It will add both depth and freshness at the same time.
