Mitoku Macrobiotic Organic Umeboshi are entirely hand-made by the traditional method. First, premium organic Ume (Japanese plums) are gathered in remote orchards. The tart fruits are pickled in sea salt, sun-dried, then aged in their own juice for up to a year. Shiso leaves (Perilla frutescens) is added to impart its deep red color and zesty flavour.

Besides their dramatic flavor, Japanese pickled plums have remarkable medicinal qualities. Their powerful acidity has a paradoxical alkalinizing effect on the body, neutralizing fatigue, stimulating the digestion, and promoting the elimination of toxins.
