Mozuku Udon

“We want to share the merits of Okinawan mozuku”Our noodles are made with such a desire.
Focusing on the slippery texture peculiar to mozuku, we were committed to the manufacturing method, material and texture of mozuku udon(noodles). The ingredients of the noodles are only raw mozuku produced in Okinawa and wheat flour produced in Tokachi, Hokkaido. No salt is added.
Through this process, raw mozuku accounts for about 30% of noodles,

The noodle broth is made from carefully selected kelp broth produced in Hokkaido and a great amount of kelp powder without any chemical seasoning.
Noodles become more delicious when eaten with the broth.

Mozuku

Mozuku is one kind of seaweed, which has been eaten in Okinawa for a long time as vital longevity food.
In particular, Okinawan mozuku is characterized by its thickness and chewy texture and contains minerals and a lot of nutrients.
