Umeboshi, a salt pickled / sun-dried ume plum (Prunus mume) is one of Japan’s most ancient super foods. Since the 10th century, the Japanese have used umeboshi as a healthy tonic, where Samurai warriors used it as an energy enhancer. It contains considerable amounts of citric and phosphoric acids, which has 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 flavor 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 ideal for sushi, dips, sauces, and salad dressing.
