In 1952 our family producers set up their business to produce Karinto, a traditional Japanese sweet snack in Himeji, west Japan. They then diversified into producing rice crackers 4 years later.
They have since become well-known as a 100% Organic Brown Rice Cracker producer and were inspired by the philosophy of the macrobiotic diet in 1961. They use the highest quality ingredients, traditional recipes and time honoured processes to produce these authentic wholesome snacks.
The process starts with 100% organically grown brown rice. The brown rice is slowly and carefully processed and steamed to make a dough. This process takes three to four times longer than when using white rice. The dough is then cooled with water and the texture is carefully checked by hand.
Sesame seeds and tamari are added. Sesame seeds suppress the smell of brown rice bran and adds a delicious aroma to the crackers.
The dough is then moulded into rice cracker shapes.
The crackers are slowly dried on a net for more than half a day to reduce their moisture content and left overnight to settle. They are then dried again using far-infrared dryers for another night to remove the last of the moisture. This long and slow drying process has a significant influence on the finished product. Finally, they are baked in an oven to make these light, delicate and crispy crackers.
I ordered these from a search for Japanese rice cakes with black sesame - a product I used to buy a long time ago in England. Although these were not the ones, I found them very tasty.
Delicious crackers - very moorish!
I absolutely adore these crispy, crunchy, tangy, tasty crackers. They’re great on their own or dipped in humous for a lunchtime treat.
These are the best rice crackers I’ve ever tried. Crispy snap and gorgeous umami flavour. They will be a regular purchase. One problem, whenever I open a packet, I end up eating the whole bag!
