Nutrition contained in Amazake |

Hello. This is Ren MURO Kagurazaka store.

Recently, rice koji amazake, which is said to be a “drinkable drip”, has been attracting attention for its health and beauty benefits, and contains various nutrients.

Today, I will briefly explain the nutrients contained in such rice koji amazake.

① Glucose

It is made by breaking down the starch in rice with the enzymes of koji mold, and is a nutrient that serves as an energy source to move the brain and body. Amazake, which contains these ingredients, is ideal for times when you don't have time to eat, such as in the morning, because it doesn't need to be digested in the body and directly becomes energy for the brain and body. It also gives you a feeling of fullness, which helps you lose weight.

②Vitamin B group

Amazake contains vitamins B1, B2, B6, niacin, and other essential nutrients for our bodies that are involved in protein synthesis and lipid metabolism. It promotes the metabolism of lipids, so it can help with dieting, and it activates the cells of the skin and mucous membranes, so you can expect a beautiful skin effect. Amazake, in particular, has an absorption rate of over 90%.

(3) Oligosaccharides and dietary fiber

The abundant oligosaccharides and dietary fiber contained in amazake are nutrients that regulate the intestinal environment. Oligosaccharides feed good bacteria, and dietary fiber traps accumulated wastes and promotes bowel movements. This will improve the intestinal environment and improve immunity.

④ Essential amino acids

Amazake contains all 9 kinds of essential amino acids that cannot be produced in the body, and it leads to various effects such as recovery from fatigue, improvement of immunity, beautiful skin effect and sound sleep effect.

⑤ Kojic acid

Kojic acid, which is produced when koji mold ferments rice, suppresses the production of melanin, which causes spots and freckles, and is expected to have a whitening effect. It also has anti-glycation and antioxidant properties, helping to prevent aging in the body.

In addition, various effects can be expected from the cooperation of the nutrients contained in amazake, such as a relaxing effect due to essential amino acids and glucose, and an anti-aging effect.

The above five are the main nutrients of rice koji amazake.
In order to experience this effect, you want to choose real rice koji amazake.

In particular, we would like you to be careful when choosing “sake lees amazake”, which is the same type of amazake.
It also contains various nutrients, but it contains a small amount of alcohol, so please be careful not to drink it by children or pregnant women.
