Mitoku "Bitterns" Natural Nigari
Japanese Coagulant derived from Sea Salt

Mitoku Nigari is a natural bitterns (coagulant) derived from the Japan Sea. Nigari is a traditional solidifier used in the making of quality tofu. Mitoku natural nigari is derived from sea water and is the mineral-rich residue that slowly drips off moist sea salt and is then sun-dried.

Mitoku's producer, Yoshikawa Co. has been making high-quality Nigari since 1861 and is the oldest nigari maker in Japan. They produce 100% pure, Nigari derived from natural seawater. It is traditionally made whereby all impurities are removed using no extraction chemicals. This creates a pure and natural magnesium chloride nigari. Mitoku Nigari is an easy-to dissolve flake form and yeilds delicious tofu that meets the highest quality food quality standards.

Liquid Nigari

Liquid Nigari is a derivative of seawater and used as coagulant to make tofu from soy milk. It requires soy milk with a protein share of 11% and works best with natural soy milk for making fresh tofu. One packet of Liquid Nigari (5ml/.17 oz.) is required per each 125ml or 1/2 Cup of soymilk.
