♦Hokkaido grown “Momiji series onion” is used

Basic ingredient of onion dressing is mainly Hokkaido grown “Momiji series onion”, such as “Kita Momiji 2000” or “Super Kita Momiji”.

Momiji series onions are bitter. This bitterness component makes your blood flow smoother, so it is very healthy. In addition, this bitterness becomes sweetness when it is heated up, so you can enjoy its sweet juicy taste.


▲It has a mild sweet juicy taste when used in pasta.


♦By using patented BRC process, it has been determined that its juicy (Umami) and healthy attributes are 15 times more than other varieties!

A “sulfuric chemical compound”, which makes up the bitter component of Momiji series onion produces a similar effect as garlic and onion fragrance, which in turn has antibacterial and antioxidant activity.

By using patented BRC process, this sulfuric chemical compound has been determined to provide healthy contributions to the human body.

This onion cooked using patented BRC process has concentration of flavors that you can surely taste and differentiate from other varieties.

It tastes amazingly juicy and its sweetness comes from being additive-free.

Another healthy attribute found by the BRC process was that the tissue component provides a “remedy for memory defects”.

This is the second patented attribute. Along with antioxidant activity, it can be expected to activate the brain.


♦Plenty of diced cut onions bring out the richness in flavor!

In addition to tasting with roasted beef, we also provided the dressing alone.

Some customers commented that, “It has a pronounced onion taste”, “rich in flavor”, or “tastes like a big chunk of onion”.

The secret of its richness and intensity is that there are 50g of diced onions in one bottle.
