Made with Carefully Selected Japanese Ingredients

INGREDIENTS

Made with Carefully Selected Japanese Ingredients

Made with barley grass grown in Japan (Kyushu), with no chemosynthetic agrochemicals or chemical fertilizers. Barley grass grows best in areas with wide ranging temperatures, making the wide open expanses of Kyushu perfect for barley grass cultivation. In this ideal climate, the farmers take great care to make great soil. During cultivation, absolutely no chemically synthesized agrochemicals are used, and the soil is carefully tilled by tractor with compost. Seeds are also painstakingly placed under careful climate observation to prevent spread of disease and weeds.

PRODUCTION

Harvesting By Hand

PRODUCTION

Harvesting By Hand

In order to process the ingredients on the same day while still fresh, harvesting is done in the early morning. To prevent dead grass and dirt from getting mixed in, the grass is cut by hand with a mower down to a height of approximately 10cm. People work in groups to cut the barley grass quickly, get it packed up on a truck, and ship it off.

PRODUCTION

Processed on the Same Day to Preserve Nutrition and Color

PRODUCTION

Processed on the Same Day to Preserve Nutrition and Color

Harvested barley grass is immediately taken to the nearest factory for preliminary processing. The grass is washed, cut, and then steamed. This process is very important in both sterilizing the grass and preserving its nutrients. The grass is then allowed to dry for six hours after it has reached its greenest hue. Each step of this process is extremely important in the quality of the final product. Each step must be done with utmost care. Because each producer has a direct connection to a factory, the grass can be processed very soon after harvest, thereby preserving the nutrients and brilliant green color of the barley grass.

"Grass of Longevity" from Okinawa's Yonaguni Island

"Grass of Longevity," called chomeiso and botanbofu in Japanese, is a wild grass grown on Yonaguni Island, the westernmost point in Japan. The grass normally grows on the rocky outcrops and cliffs of the island. In the fields where the grass of longevity is cultivated, weeding takes 14 hours a day, and to keep the conditions for cultivation as close to natural as possible, the fields are watered with seawater once a month. The minerals from the seawater turn into nutrients that help protect the leaves from disease. The grasses contain plenty of vitamins and polyphenols, and are said to "give you an extra day of live for each plant you eat." This plant is said to be the secret to the long, robust lives of the residents of Yonaguni Island.

A Day's Worth of Vegetable Nutrition in a Single Cup

Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare recommends at least 350g of vegetables per day. It is actually extremely difficult to get the recommended 350g of vegetables each and every day. One pack of EGAO Aojiru Mansai Green Juice contains the same amount of vitamin B6 as about 5 bunches of spinach (about 1,737g of spinach leaves, boiled) and the same amount of folic acid as about 27 raw green peppers (about 899g of peppers). Just dissolving a single packet in a glass of water makes it easy to get the vegetable nutrients you need.

Fine Grinding is the Key

TASTES GREAT

Fine Grinding is the Key

By using so many vegetables, but also aiming for good flavor and color, we often ended up with a grainy texture. We tried many different methods to get a smoother texture, and found that finely grinding the main ingredient – the barley grass – was key. A finer powder makes it easier to dissolve in both hot and cold water, making for a tastier, easier to drink aojiru.
