Clearspring Amazake - Sweet Grains Dessert is made using time-honoured production processes and just 3 simple organic ingredients - water, whole grains and a pinch of salt. These undergo true alchemy to produce this thick, creamy, dairy-free traditional Japanese dessert. Literally translated as “sweet sake” a koji culture converts the carbohydrates from the whole grains into simple sugars giving rise to the naturally sweet flavour of amazake.
In Japan Amazake (sometimes spelt Amasake), is normally consumed as a drink where it is diluted with hot water, sieved and drunk as a comforting winter warmer. However, it is very versatile and can also be used to add texture and protein to your favourite fruit smoothie, natural sweetness to pancakes and muffins or as a batter to make dairy-free French Toast.

Two of my girlfriends got the giggles when they shared a cup. I had not seen them laugh quit so much before this occasion. I have read that the drink is served to children in Japan at festivals. Pleasant taste, easy to prepare and very special.
Any foods that are now raw, you should take digestive enzymes with and this includes the fruit puree and Amazake
Didn't know quite what to expect with this - ended up eating the whole jar when I was planning to use it for porridge or cooking of some form. A pleasant and subtly sweet taste.
... I didn't actually like it. I'm so sorry. It's just that all I could taste was salt, and I was so disappointed, because I had read that amazake was supposed to be sweet. I'm really sorry.
This said, delivery was prompt, and everything was packaged well! =)
Hi Fiona, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're surprised to hear this, because this is a very sweet product. As you can see from the nutritional info, there's only 0.05g of salt per 100g. If possible, can you reply with the production date, best before date and batch number so our Quality team can investigate?
Nice straight from the jar but really quite sweet. It's a little like frangipane in texture, so I made pastry tartlet cases, filled them with amazake and put frozen raspberries on top. Baked them in a hot oven for 20 minutes and had them as a pudding with a little icing sugar sprinkled on top. They were delicious. The raspberries worked well because they were quite sharp, contrasting nicely with the sweetness of the amazake. Next time I might try it with Bramley apple and/or blackberries. I think blueberries would work well, too.
