This is awarded the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries prize in 1997. This is a concession of Akita Konno.
We had continuously studied Koji for improvement, with the result that we succeeded in development of white fungi and got a concession (no.274973, no.274974). These white Koji fungi which are pioneer of Koji producing industry have the same enzymatic activity with that of progenitor fungi and these are clearly Asp. oryzae in mycology. Method of producing Koji is the same as traditional one. Completed Koji always keeps its white. Please, use this excellent Tane-Koji made by Akita Konno which has been favorably reviewed since sale.
