With this versatile wafu dashi powder you can quickly and easily prepare a rich, flavorful broth for seafood. Save yourself the trouble of having to prepare a bunch of different ingredients to make a dashi broth. This awase, which means "combined," contains kombu (kelp) which helps balance the strong flavor of the bonito. Along with bonito dashi broth, awase dashi broth is commonly used as a fundamental staple for a tremendous amount of Japanese dishes. It is brimming with umami and perfect for making immensely flavorful stews and udon noodle dishes. It contains no food additives, chemical seasonings, or MSG.

While you can certainly make your own dashi from scratch, many Japanese people nowadays prefer to use dashi powder for its convenience and quick preparation. With this basic wafu dashi powder, everything you need is already in the package. Simply add one sachet to hot water to make a basic and versatile awase dashi broth. Then you can add vegetables, noodles, fish, and many other ingredients to your liking. You can also sprinkle it directly onto soup or other ingredients to add a subtle dashi flavor. This box contains 8 sachets (0.21 oz each) of easy-to-use granulated awase soup stock.

Delicious soup base. Very very good

Wafu Dashi Packets

I don't like chemically enhanced dashi packets, even if it's just MSG. So, finding this packets with no additives made me very happy. I normally make my own dashi, but when I'm in a hurry or for a small amount, this packet is great.

Excellent Dashi

Brought a delicious flavor to my Shoyu Ramen broth. The only downside is there was no recommended ratios on the package. (And no English alternatives)
I think one packet brings good flavor to about 4-5 cups of water. That said I was extremely satisfied with this dashi, the flavor is excellent and the price was great. Shipping was fast. I will be using Umami Insider in the future for sure.
