WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT RED MISO?
We use Certified Organic Red Miso as a base for all of our Ramens, as it is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals delivering wholesome benefits. It has been dried using a low temperature drying method (freeze drying technique) to retain most of its nutritional benefits, taste and colour. During its processing soya beans and rice were fermented with the probiotic fungus Aspergillus oryzae, to enhance the miso flavour and health goodness. Our beautifully tasting and satisfying Ramen Broths couldn’t get any better than this!
WHERE IS THE MISO RAMEN FLAVOUR COMING FROM?
Our 3 ramen varieties have no added flavours! The wonderful rich umami Japanese ramen taste comes from our Certified Organic Fermented Red Miso.
WHAT IS UMAMI (AND DOES IT EXIST)?
Umami is one of our five basic tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and umami. It is translated as “pleasant savoury taste” and it was created in 1908 by a Japanese Chemist. It describes the “brothy and meaty” taste with a long-lasting, mouth watering sensation over the tongue. It only became officially recognised as a fifth taste when scientists were able to locate the taste-bud receptors for umami validating its existence. The umami taste can be perceived through taste receptors that typically respond to special compounds commonly present in fermented foods (like our red miso), meat broths, cheeses, mushrooms…
WHY IS THERE MCT OIL POWDER?
We wanted to offer a complete “Multidimensional Ramen Broth Experience” that would deliver the unique umami taste together with the mouthfeel sensation associated with a rich homemade broth. That is why we added Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) Oil powder to our formulas. MCT Oil Powder contains fats extracted from coconut oil, that have a reputation for being beneficial and popular amongst keto followers. Our Ramens have “good fatty acids” that create a “creamy” unique mouthfeel sensation.
HOW ARE DEACTIVATED NUTRITIONAL SAVOURY FLAKES MADE?
They are made from a single-celled organism fungi called Saccharomyces cerevisiae grown on molasses. They are harvested, washed and dried with heat to ‘deactivate’ them and then rolled to form flakes.
ARE DEACTIVATED NUTRITIONAL SAVOURY FLAKES FORTIFIED WITH VITAMINS?
Nutritional Yeast Flakes are fortified with vitamins in the initial stages of growth. As the yeast grows they organically bind to these vitamins and proliferate them. The yeast itself also digests these vitamins to a degree and proliferates its own nutrient content creating a naturally vitamin rich food that can easily be incorporated into all savoury meals.
WHAT DOES “DEACTIVATED” NUTRITIONAL SAVOURY FLAKES MEAN?
Deactivated is a term used to describe the quick heating process that stops nutritional yeast from being able to proliferate any further. Just like good and bad bacteria, there are good and bad yeasts that exist within our digestive tract. Unlike unhealthy yeasts such as Candida spp., nutritional yeast is made from a healthful yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae which helps to stop unhealthy yeasts from colonising in the digestive tract by a process of displacement. Therefore even though nutritional yeast is deactivated and unable to proliferate in the body, it is still having the favourable effects of a beneficial yeast in the digestive tract.
ARE THE RAMENS GLUTEN FREE?
Yes, our Ramen Broths are gluten free! The recipes do not contain any gluten containing ingredients and we make sure that they are manufactured and packed in a gluten free environment. On the top of that, we test every product before it hits the shelf, just to triple check.
IS IT PREGNANCY & BREASTFEEDING FRIENDLY?
Yes! In saying this, we do advise on all our products to seek advice from your health care professional on taking our products if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. We only say so as we believe that every pregnancy is different, taking a toll differently on each individual body in vitamin, mineral and energy levels. We invite you to research the product to ensure that you are not sensitive to any particular ingredients.
ARE THEY VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN?
Our Beef and Chicken Ramens are definitely not vegan/vegetarian.
However our Vegetable Ramen is vegan, as it does not contain any animal derived ingredients.
But if you are allergic to dairy we would recommend you to pay special attention to our disclaimer on the pack that states “May contain traces of milk protein”. The ‘may contain’ labelling is used for products that do not have milk as an ingredient, but are for instance made on production lines that share milk-containing ingredients.
