Rausu kombu offered here comes from Shiretoko Peninsula shores, northeastern region of Hokkaidō Island and overlooks the Sea of Okhotsk, an area that is very famous for its high quality and highly prized Rausu kombu.

The making of Tororo kombu is totally handmade and requires a mastered know-how.
Indeed, the kombu, first soaked in vinegar, then trimmed and compressed, is very finely planed into long thin strips. Black surface strips are called kuro-tororo and the light inner ones are called shiro-tororo.
The smoother and stickier it is, the higher its quality.

 Kombu contains glutamic acid, a type of amino acid with UMAMI. Glutamic acid umami can be enhanced by aging Kombu and it also increases synergistically by combining it with inosine acid included in dried bonito.
Kombu is also rich in dietary fiber, calcium and iodine. Its alkaline nature helps maintain balance with acidic foods such as meat and fish.
