The traditional Ume Su is the red juice of umeboshi apricots that are put in brine with shiso leaves. Its slightly acid taste makes it suitable for the same purposes as vinegar. With one difference : Ume Su is very salty, and it is not necessary to add salt to your preparation. Ume Su is less acid than ordinary vinegar. Ume Su (Su=vinegar) is called vinegar, while strictly spoken it is the sour brine juice from the lactic acid fermentation. That's why its acidity level does not exceed 2.4°, which is lower thatn real vinegar. Ume Su is characterised by a refreshing and pleasantly salty taste.


Ume Su is used in vinaigrettes, mayonnaise, pickles... Its flavour is also delicious in combination with fried vegetables, rice, couscous or pasta. It enhances the taste of tofu. A few drops of a mixture of the two vinegars (Ume and Genmai) and a spoonful of olive oil are sufficient for a delicious salad!

Product FAQ

Which measures does Lima have in place for all its imports from Japan?

Various Lima products are sourced from suppliers in the south of Japan. Most of these suppliers are small, traditional businesses, with whom we have had quite close ties for several years already. Many of them depend on the partnership with Lima for the survival of their business. That is why we have decided to continue the distribution of their products for the most part. We have systematic checks for radioactivity in place to continue to guarantee impeccable products to our customers.

• We have halted some product imports (see map).
• Products originating from high-risk areas in Japan are inspected upon arrival in the Port of Antwerp by the Federal Agency for the Safety of the Food Chain (FASFC).
• The Lima Expert lab also takes samples of some products. These are then analysed by a specialised lab at Ghent University.
• We measure a product’s radioactivity, which is expressed in becquerel/kg (Bq/kg) and detect caesium, iodine and potassium by measuring luminescence.
• To date, we have not found increased radioactivity in a single product imported from Japan. The maximum radioactivity we measured to date in our products is smaller than the lowest quantifiable detection limit (5-20Bq/kg).
• Lima’s commitment to guarantee safe and healthy products remains the same.

Are there any Bisphenol A and Phthalates in Lima's packaging?

Lima’s packaging is also designed to impact the environment as little as possible. Our packaging complies with the current legislation regarding the presence and migration of harmful substances. Lima does not use bisphenol A, which is used in some plastic bottles and which directly comes into contact with food products. We also always prefer phthalate-free plastics.
