Red shiso or purple shiso, Aka shiso in Japanese, from its vernacular name Perilla Frustecens, is a member of the mint family.

It is one of the most important herbs and condiments in Japanese cuisine. Red shiso is often used to color foods and in marinades. Aromatic and taste notes of the green variety are similar to those of basil.

Purple version is reminiscent of hibiscus, sour cherry and acerola. In Japan, this plant is considered a medicinal plant, renowned for its antiseptic, soothing, antiallergic and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as for its preventive effects against cardiovascular disease.

Red shiso is a "Japanese herb" with a good balance of vitamins and minerals. These leaves, processed as a condiment, are very rare to find in Japan.

Our artisan is located in Aomori, in northern Japan. He produces his own shiso on his own farm, harvesting each year seeds handed down from his ancestors that are unique to his farm.

During cultivation, leaves are sprayed with an enzymatic solution based on domestic rice vinegar. This healthy, natural insecticide also improves quality. Although this is the most time-consuming process, only medium-sized leaves are carefully selected and prepared for harvesting.

Red shiso leaves are prepared using only plum vinegar and sun-dried salt. No colorants, preservatives or chemical seasonings are used to maximize ingredients natural flavor. Plum vinegar is main flavor enhancer and key to aroma and flavor. It is also produced in-house.
