Literally meaning “sprinkles”, furikake is Japanese savory flakes commonly used as a topping over rice. There are a number of different types, but shiso furikake is one of the most popular kinds thanks to shiso leaf’s refreshing aroma, beautiful color, and high nutritional value. Fukami’s Organic Shiso Furikake is made using red shiso organically grown in Wakayama Prefecture and umesu, a byproduct of making umeboshi, salt-cured “ume” plum. As a grower of organic ume plum and manufacturer of its products, Fukami uses their special skills to create this premier furikake. They carefully moisten and massage the Japanese herb with umesu—the liquid naturally produced when salt-curing plums—dry it using hot air, and then make it into flakes. This process helps the final product retain its fresh shiso flavor and aroma. You can use Organic Shiso Furikake not only as a sprinkling over rice but also for many other dishes such as noodles, grilled meat, pasta, salad, and more. No additives and MSG are used.
