  Product Brand  Marukura
  Product Name  Dried Brown Rice Malt Domestic Japan-Made Healthy 500 gx20     Packs
  Place of Origin  Japan



Rice malt traditionally hand-crafted by artisans     

We are the OEM for many manufacturers overseas     

Uses only domestically-grown rice


Brown rice malt is a product we at Marukura are proud of.

While many manufacturers produce white rice malt, there's a good reason why only a few manufacturers make brown rice malt.  Brown rice has a bran, whose thickness is very difficult for Aspergillus oryzae, the mold used in making malt, to penetrate. This means that A.oryzae cannot reach the white kernel of the rice. But if scratches are made in the rice bran, so small as to be invisible to the naked eye, A.oryzae can penetrate the bran and create brown rice malt. Our method for scratching the rice bran involves a very difficult adjustment to the rice mill, and because the scratches are invisible to the eye, we check the rice by touch. Under the first layer of the bran is an oily portion. We judge whether the scratches have been made by feeling for this oily part. It takes at least two years for a worker to be able to make this judgment.




You can add a sweet aroma and deep flavor to French bread or bread rolls by adding malt. It's a multi-purpose condiment that you can simply add to salmon or meats to give them tenderness and a mellow flavor.       



Those who are concerned about their skin or have an interest in health and beauty will certainly find value in adding this to their lifestyle by drinking it daily. You can even try it as a smoothie!     


Salted malt can actually be used in a wide variety of cooking applications. Not only can you marinate fish and meat in it for tenderness, it also goes well with noodles like udon and somen and, because it has less sodium, it can even be used in baby food.


You can even use it when making sweets or pastries, because the activity of the malt brings out the sweetness!



Use salted malt in your fried chicken to boost its flavor - this recipe will bring your boys to the table!

Place bite-sized pieces of chicken in a bowl and add the salted malt from before. Knead the pieces and let sit for ten minutes. By adding it over time, you can boost the flavor and aroma of the meat!



You can also use salted malt to make your own dressings. A fruity dressing made with satsumas (mandarin oranges) and ginger improves circulation and aids the metabolism!


<Making Shiokoji from Malt>


One thing you can make with malt is Shiokoji, or salted malt.

By using salted malt in your cooking, you can bring out the flavors in your ingredients. Salted malt breaks down starches and proteins to draw out sweetness and umami, and meats marinated in salted malt become more tender.


It not only brings out flavor, it also has a variety of beneficial effects to your health. Vitamins like B6 contained in salted malt help to alleviate fatigue, while amino acids abate stress and lactic acid bacilli aid digestion. You can also expect an anti-aging effect and improvements to your skin condition, because salted malt works to neutralize free radicals. It's effective for both health and beauty!    



Salted Malt Recipe

Prepare Marukura dried malt, table salt, and water.

Place these ingredients in a bowl and stir thoroughly.

Let it rest. It's done!


Our company was founded as a rice dealer during the Meiji era (1868 - 1912). After World War II, Japan entered a period of rapid economic growth, which resulted in an increase in the number of large rice dealers in the prefecture, and many smaller rice dealers went out of business. It was around this time that my father and predecessor decided to start adding value to rice before selling it. In addition to making the shift from a rice dealer to a malted rice dealer, the company name was changed to Marukura Foods by placing a circle (maru) around the "kura" from Kurashiki. As Marukura Foods, we have continued to produce high-quality fermented food products for over 40 years.
