All Kombu from OKUI are preserved and aged in a special ageing cellar, at controlled temperature and humidity, using the Kura-gakoi technique, as for the preservation of wine.
This method reduces smell of the sea and unpleasant taste of Kombu flesh and brings out the true UMAMI, offering subtlety and elegance to the tasting. Cellar and storage boxes are made of Japanese cedar wood.

Our perfect pairings : this kombu powder, extremely fine, is a real secret ingredient to enhance flavors of many preparations: clear broths, butters, purees, minced meats, fillings of meat or vegetable pies, ravioli pastes, pasta ...

 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 a balance with acidic foods such as meat and fish.
