Of Eden Shake VT says, "One shake of this seaweedy seasoning delivers instant umami." Eden Shake aka furikake is a sesame seed/sea vegetable sprinkle traditionally made in Japan of roasted black and tan sesame, green nori flakes, and pickled red shiso (beefsteak) leaves. It's a time-tested favorite and a very fun way to enjoy the benefits of sesame, shiso, and nori sea vegetable; very low sodium with just 25mg/serving and it has an easy dispenser cap. It's a versatile table condiment, a more flavorful replacement of table salt when sprinkled on whole grain, noodles, baked potatoes, salads, vegetables, pizza, and organic Eden Popcorn. It's an excellent flourish on grilled food and California sushi rolls, and makes vinaigrettes and marinades richer.
