A refreshing taste bringing out the flavor of every ingredient
Quality designed to enhance the flavor of hot pots and a variety of other dishes
With the original use of AJIPON in hot pots, Mizkan was focused on quality and taste, evaluating this meticulously to see if the flavor would stand up even when diluted.
In addition to AJIPON’s use as a seasoning for hot pots, we designed quality by conducting taste tests on a number of Japanese dishes, including chilled tofu, gyoza and ohitashi (boiled greens in bonito-flavored soy sauce).
Only a select group of evaluators that specialize in the ponzu vinegar category at Mizkan take part in evaluating taste, appearance and aroma.
Carefully selected ingredients for that refreshing feeling
Citrus juice: Mizkan’s original blend of several types of citrus juice was used to create a refreshing feeling yet with a sense of richness.
Soy sauce: We selected a soy sauce that would produce a refreshing taste, carefully focusing an aroma that was not too strong and a quality that would allow it not to settle too easily when used in ponzu vinegar.
Vinegar: We hand-picked the suitable vinegar for a refreshing, clean taste from those brewed by Mizkan for more than 200 years.
