Umeboshi, a salt pickled/sun-dried ume plum (Prunus mume) is one of Japan’s most ancient superfoods. Since the 10th century, the Japanese have used umeboshi as a healthy tonic, whereas Samurai warriors used it as an energy enhancer. It contains considerable amounts of citric and phosphoric acids, which have a paradoxical alkalizing effect on the blood. This is why Umeboshi is often referred to as “the king of Alkaline Foods.” Umeboshi is also a unique culinary addition in your kitchen, providing an unusually salty, sour, and subtly sweet flavour to any foods you eat with them. This healthy pickled condiment is pureed and packed in an easy-to-use screw-top stand pouch and is ideal for sushi, dips, sauces, and salad dressing. Ingredients: organic Umeboshi (organic Ume plums, sea salt), Organic ume vinegar (Organic ume plum, Sea salt, organic shiso Leaves).
