Sake lees, which is made by squeezing the raw material’s sake made by fermenting sake and koji, contains large amounts of amino acids, vitamins, protein, folic acid, and fiber. For this reason, sake lees is said to be a treasure trove of nutrients in Japan. It has long been known that eating sake lees, which is rich in nutritional components, can suppress obesity, improve metabolism, relieve constipation, improve the intestinal environment, and have beauty effects on the skin. In this way, sake lees is both a health food and a nutritional food.
Sake lees is an excellent nutritional food, but its consumption in Japan has been decreasing in recent years. The reason for this is that the number of households making sake lees dishes (amazake, kasujiru, kasuzuke, etc.), which are a bit troublesome to prepare, is decreasing.
Because the production and consumption of sake lees cannot be balanced, a large amount of sake lees is disposed of every year. Disposing of sake lees is a waste of limited and valuable nutritional resources. Creating consumption commensurate with the amount of sake lees produced can be said to be an action that leads to the implementation of SDG’s.
Powdering is an effective way to easily store sake lees at room temperature for long periods of time. By combining sake lees powder with white chocolate, Belair company has developed Sake Kasu(sake lees) chocolate, a health food that can effectively utilize sake lees powder. We consider the reuse of sake lees to be part of SDG’s initiatives, and will continue to work on developing new ways to use sake lees.
