    • 1994: Noodles selected as one of the 100 World Foods by New York Times

    Production Process

    The key to the great tasting noodles is to allow plenty of time when mixing the dough and drying the noodles. They use a custom-made super mixer, which mixes the dough at low temperatures for an hour and a half which promotes rapid gluten formation. This process will create the firm texture the Japanese call “Koshi” and the finished product is similar in style to the very traditional hand-kneaded noodle (“Teuchi” udon).

    The drying process is also important and our producer uses a chain slow air dryer. This slowly air dries and matures the noodles to concentrate their flavour. Another advantage of using this type of dryer is that they can adjust the air speed for different kinds of noodles. Combined with their experience and craftsmanship, they are able to produce consistently good quality noodles throughout the year in different seasons, temperatures and humidity.

    Nowadays the majority of noodle producers make production efficiency a priority – one whole day is usually enough to mix, dry and pack the noodles. In contrast, our producer spends 2 days on thin noodles (e.g. somen and soba), and 3 days on udon and this is just the time taken to dry them!!
