Ishigaki Green Noodle 碧の麺 - 180g
Ishigaki is a Japanese island, where you can enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the seven-color shining sea. This Green Noodle is named after the rich nature and みどり色 (Midori color) of the Ishigaki sea. It has also been exhibited in the Okinawa Fair in 2016 and received a lot of recognition from both local and overseas people.
The green in the noodle comes from Chlorella originated from the Yaeyama region of Ishigaki. Chlorella is a green algae with many health benefits - ex. boosts immunity, acts as an antioxidant, improves cholesterol, and has anti-inflammatory properties etc.
With Chlorella added to wheat flour, the gluten and alpha starch of the noodle is strengthened. The noodle becomes more elastic and turns into a 'mochi' like texture due to better water absorption and retention. The nutritional ingredients of the noodle can nourish the body and mind.
