A new product from Camstar Ingredients

Camstar ingredients latest product development involves us creating a version of Yuzukoshō (柚子胡椒, also yuzugoshō) using imported fermented green jalapeno chillies and 100% yuzu juice. Yuzukoshō is a type of Japanese seasoning. It is a paste made from chilli peppers, yuzu and salt, which is then allowed to ferment. The most famous types of yuzukoshō come from Kyushu, where it is a local specialty.

Originally yuzukoshō was used in nabemono, but it is now also found as a condiment for Japanese meatball soup, udon, miso, sashimi, tempura, and Japanese grilled chicken. Further, since becoming available all throughout Japan, it is being used in various ways. For example, it is being used on spaghetti, salad dressing, tonkatsu, ramen, and shumai.

Large-scale manufacturers have also started using the flavoring in their products. Calbee makes snack foods such as potato chips that are flavored as yuzukoshō although these are found in only certain locations. Ezaki Glico makes PRETZ with the flavoring, and Meiji makes a curly corn chip that is sold only on the island of Kyushu, a place where Nestle offer Kit Kats with yuzukoshō flavor . Kameda makes fried mochi chips and senbei as well. As snacks must not have any moisture in them, the flavoring is created by combining yuzu powder and chilli powder, and real yuzukoshō is not used.
