Hoshi-Imo Dried Japanese Sweet Potato Snack 320g

$21.98

Satsumaimo means Japanese sweet potato and has a sweet taste and smooth texture. Among all the varieties of Satsumaimo the Beniharuka is one of the sweetest and creamiest. These characteristics are optimal for making this delicious and healthy Hoshi-imo (or also called Japanese dried sweet potato).

This healthy Japanese Dried Sweet Potato Snack is rich in taste and nutrition. Hoshi-imo is free of cholesterol and rich in dietary fiber, potassium and vitamins B, C and E.

This pack of Hoshi-imo contains only dried sweet potatoes made in Ibaraki which is the largest producing area of sweet potatoes in Japan. Ibaraki has a fertile soil and a cold and dry climate which are the optimal conditions to produce high quality Satsumaimo.

Hoshi-imo is best eaten as-is fresh out of the pack, no preparation necessary. It pairs well with salty foods like cheese, and/or a dry white wine.

Some hoshi-imo will have white powder coating them, this is potato starch, a natural sugar which has crystallized. It's safe, and comes from within the sweet potato itself. This is not mold. Mold that grows on dried sweet potatoes is typically blue or red, not white.

The longer you store your hoshi-imo before eating, the more crystalized starch will appear. There's no need to wash it off before consumption, as it's totally fine to eat!

    Great with a drink

    Liked the chewy gummy texture. A bit pricey for the amount that comes with it though.. but still nice to give a try!
