“Wagyu” Japanese beef

“Wagyu” Japanese Beef

The deliciousness of Japanese black beef consists of the following factors: the taste and flavor that spread out in the mouth and the smooth texture. Amino acids, including glutamic acid in meat and broth, which contains inosine acid, cause us to sense savoriness, and a lot of oleic acids, which is a component of flavor, is also much contained in WAGYU. Therefore, “Japanese black beef” is different from other species of cattle but has a special deliciousness of its own.

Smooth velvety texture, juicy flavor, and delicate but rich taste will linger on the palate. These unique characteristics are created by the large proportion of amino acids (the basis of its umami or savoriness) and unsaturated fat.

In addition, “marbling” affects its taste. We have especially valued marbling on beef as a symbol of high quality, so it is the key to grade beef. However, the marbling fat in the beef is never too rich. Indeed, it will almost melt in your mouth as you put the piece in your mouth. The marbling is evidence that cattle have been specially raised in the vast, lush wilderness using carefully selected feed, pure water, and clean air.

We are sure that once you taste “Wagyu” Japanese beef, you will find a new value and taste of beef.
