1. Our specialized product
・Seasoning Oils with an animal-fat taste for plant-based food.
We are a manufacturer of seasoning oils which feature real animal-fat flavor from 100% plant-based ingredients. Our cutting-edge blending technology creates specialized flavors and tastes, outstanding one is ‘Umami’, a traditional Japanese flavor. Umami offers a unique, more complex flavor which is quite different from other basic flavors like typical garlic oils which are just made from plain oils + garlic.
2. Our innovative global brand ・ botanova
We are bringing ’food innovation’ into the plant-based food industry. In order to differentiate, we have established the ’botanova brand’ using our world-class unique technology. ’Bota’ comes from ‘Botanical’ and ’Nova’ stands for ’Innovation’.
3. The special properties behind the botanova brand.
We have succeeded in creating a brand-new taste that mimics the special properties of animal-fat taste but is from 100 % plant-based ingredients. First, we thoroughly analyzed the ingredients that create the aroma of animal-fat flavors such as that contained in conventional lard and beef tallow. Then, using our unique blending technology we created an aroma and taste that matches animal-fat but is entirely plant-based.
