Eden Ponzu Sauce is made from simply combining shoyu soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, barley malt, and the juices of yuzu and sudachi. 'Yuzu' is Japanese for citron, a yellow thick skinned fruit (Citrus medica) that resembles a lime or lemon but is larger and not as acidic. It grows in semitropical climates and originated in China. Sudachi is another Japanese citrus fruit thought to be a cross between Chinese lemon and a citron. It has the appearance of a small lime, and is native to the Tokushima Ken area of Shikoku, one of the southern Japanese islands.
Eden Ponzu Sauce contains no artificial coloring agents or flavorings, chemical additives or preservatives. Eden Ponzu sauce is made without oil and has about one tenth the calories of French dressing. It adds volumes of flavor yet zero fat.
Eden Ponzu Sauce is convenient, quick and easy to use. Frequently used as a dipping sauce for vegetables cooked in an earthenware bowl called 'do-nabe'. Today it is used in a variety of ways for dipping noodles, cooked vegetables, tofu and fish. It can also be used as a salad dressing as a an ingredient in salad dressings. The unique combination of ingredients in Eden Ponzu Sauce gives it a distinctive salty, sour, mildly sweet, and slightly pungent flavor. We love it on the table and in the kitchen.
