Aji Nori Furikake is one of the most popular and basic Furikakes in Japan. Aji Nori Furikake has color, texture and a traditional taste. You get an emerald green look and a fresh sea taste from the small nori strips. A delightful crunch and nutty sesame taste from the Toasted White and Black sesame seeds. A perfect balance of sweet and savory from a dash of sea salt and sugar. Its finished off with another dash of complementary color and sea flavor from the sundried black Hijiki. Use Aji Nori Furikake as a tasty topping for a variety of dishes.
Furikake was originally developed in Japan around 1912 by a pharmacist as a helpful solution to nutrition deficits. Then it was called Gohan No Tomo, A Friend for Rice. It was then a ground product to be sprinkled on top of cooked rice, vegetables, and fish. Over the last 100 years Furikake has developed into the product we know today.
