| About NUKAZUKE |

Nukazuke (糠漬け, a salted rice bran bed) are a type of Japanese pickle, made by fermenting vegetables in salted rice bran. Vegetables pickled in nukazuke have been enjoyed in Japan since ancient times. Nuka-beds can be kept indefinitely and are often passed down from generation to generation in Japan.

The are prepared by pickling vegetables in rice bran bed and mixed with water, salt and then naturally fermented with lactic acid bacteria.

Because the fermenting process depends on colonies of live organisms, flavors and smells can vary considerably from day to day. As the fermentation period increases, the taste of the nukazuke will also increase, becoming a complex unique aroma and taste for each family.
