Sake Kasu (Sake Lees - Soft, Japan)
This is a raw and beautifully soft dough-like sake lees imported from Japan from a variety of breweries. We have Imayo Tsukasa Junmai, and Stella Junmai Daiginjo at the moment. They are both beautiful and soft.
Sake kasu can be used for baking breads and cakes, the vegan cheese sauce from my book - the crackers from my book - drinks, soups, and various enzyme face masks - and more exciting even - as a pickling bed. We have to be grateful to sake for its by-product alone. x
This is fresh and unpasteurized; we pack it frozen with some ice packs, please pop into your freezer as soon as possible. Don't worry if it has defrosted somewhat on the journey to you - there is a little alcohol in there so it will be fine to refreeze.
Full of umami goodness - and enzyme-rich, so great for our bodies inside and out.
Sake Kasu or lees is the leftover mash after pressing to extract Sake (following fermentation). The kasu is raw, and filled with lots of nutrients including proteins, vitamin B, fiber, and yeasts. There is a small amount of residual alcohol remaining.
