Description

The Ume apricot (the brine of which is also used to obtain the Ume Su vinegar) is grown in Japan and has a strong, slightly acid taste. It undergoes lactic fermentation during approximately one month in a sea salt brine with Shiso leaves, which give it its nice red colour. Umeboshi contains whole Ume apricots, which can then be cut in small pieces. Umeboshi-Past is exactly the same product, but in the form of a paste that can be diluted.

Use

Umeboshi-Past and umeboshi are two condiments with a refreshing and pleasantly salty flavour, which enhance the taste of sauces, pickles, vinaigrettes, veganaise, cooked vegetables (such as brocoli, cauliflower...), rice, veggie sushi, sashimi …

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.

Why do some vegetable drinks contain oil?

Our vegetable-based cereal drinks contain about 1% sunflower oil. We add this to obtain a stable emulsion as oats, rice and spelt do not contain enough fats. However, we do not add fats to soy drinks as they naturally contain enough fats.
