    What is Konjac?

     

    Konjac potato is a plant used as a raw material for Konjac, and it takes about 3 years to grow to harvestable size.

    Many are native to South-east Asia and are said to be about 130 types,

    but most of them are different from those harvested in Japan

    and are not suitable for Konjac products.

     

    Gunma Prefecture is Japan's No.1 Konjac production, and its share is approximately 91% (2013).

     

     

    Rich in dietary fiber and low calories

    Konjac has been said to improve our body condition from ancient times. Around the winter solstice, it has been eaten with the meaning of substantial body control and to remove a bad luck.

     

    More than 95% of the components of konjac are water, and glucomannan is a main component after removing water. It is said that konjac is hardly digested in the human digestive tract and is partially converted into fatty acids by microorganisms in the intestine for use. For this reason, it is a food with extremely low calories (5 to 7 kcal per 100 g), and is used as the best food material for those who need diet and calorie control. Glucomannan is a typical dietary fiber and is said to have the effect of lowering blood sugar level and blood cholesterol and has an Immune-enhancing activity.

    High heat-resistant

    Konjac has a high heat resistant, which means that it will not melt or over-cooked. Flour based noodles tend to absorb moisture and grow over time after boiling, however konjac based noodles stay consistent because of their physical properties are stable. By taking advantage of these characteristics, it is possible to warm up heat-sensitive foods, to distribute at normal temperature, and to produce soup canned or retort items as a new way of utilization.

    Carefully selected Konjac potatoes

    Good quality Konjac potatoes and clean water are essential for making delicious konjac. It is "resilient texture" that determines konjac taste.


    The quality of the water and the viscosity of konjac potatoes have a great impact. The water ratio (*) for a konjac potato is 30 times to 60 times higher than other product.

    Konjac potato is also a delicate food that dislikes moisture and is susceptible to diseases.

     

    Sunny and well-drained soil in wide slopes are essential for high quality and high viscosity konjac potatoes production.
