Facing challenges while food shopping is not uncommon if you do have a delicate digestive system. Japan Energy Food from Yokohama, Kanagawa, manufactures nutritious healthy energy bars with mainly Brown rice (Genmai) & Miso.
According to their CEO, Mr Kazuhiro Aizawa, these 2 nutrient-rich superfoods help boost the body's immune system. The low GI genmai contains dietary fiber & minerals, while miso contains essential amino acids, as well as vitamins, minerals & iso-flavonoids. The company currently offers 3 different flavoured energy bars — Miso, Ume & Curry.

A lot of research has been invested into developing this portable yet nourishing & savory cereal bar. The production process involves mixing rice puffs in heated syrup & flavourings via a rolling mill. The end product is a firm, chewy-textured cereal bar with the umami of miso & bonito.
What's more, each bar has only approximately around 60 - 80 calories, making it the perfect snack in-between meals for one to satiate hunger!
