Kuromame Kinako (Black Soybean Flour), 2.46 oz
Once you taste a bit of Kinako on top of mochi or ice cream or baked in a cookie or piece of candy, you'll want to stock up on this special soybean flour! Many soybean flours are made from the common beige-colored soybeans, but this premium brand is made from 100% black soybeans. The larger soybeans are also a bit healthier and sweeter--this Kinako flour delivers a slightly sweet taste somewhat akin to peanut butter. It is a popular topping for desserts in Japan, and can also be used to make many baked goods and candies. Try adding it to buttered toast, yogurt, and other foods!
