“Imoya Kinjiro, which manufactures and sells various sweet potato snacks such as imo-kenpi (sweet potato chips) and sweet potatoes, started selling ‘Imoya’s Mixed Grains Rice’ from April 1, 2024. It uses ‘Kogane-senkan,’ a sweet potato variety well-known as a raw material for sweet potato shochu. It effectively utilizes the finely chopped parts produced during the process of making imo-kenpi (fried snacks) by combining them with 16 types of domestically produced grains such as azuki beans, glutinous brown rice, and Job’s tears. It is rich in dietary fiber. Each bag weighs 25 grams. [5 bags for 700 yen, 15 bags for 2000 yen].”
