Ganso Hakata Mentaiju Mentaijyu uses kelp-wrapped mentaiko.
Mentaiko is marinated in a seasoning liquid containing various umami ingredients such as kelp and chili pepper, allowing the flavor to soak in.
In order to ensure a uniform taste, skilled craftsmen check and adjust the quality, grain texture, and degree of pickling SUN.

By doing so, the combination of mentaiko, which contains inosinic acid, and kelp, which contains glutamic acid, creates a synergistic effect of the umami ingredients, giving the flavor even more deliciousness and depth.
This is a very important cooking process to bring out the deliciousness of Mentaiju.

At our store, we have gone through a lot of trial and error not only in formulating special seasonings, but also in marinating time and temperature.
We adjust the type of kelp and pickling time to suit the product, so that customers can enjoy it deliciously even in different environments without affecting the taste.
