Hokkaido Yellow Grade Bafun Uni 北海道黄級馬糞海膽
Due to the fact that our uni from Japan are auctioned. Therefore you will not receive the same brand each time. But we can guarantee you will always get a quality product from us.
In general, “yellow” (male) tastes sweet and have a texture that melts in your mouth, while “red” (female) is said to be rich in umami and leaves a strong after taste.
Freshly caught Bafun Uni has a bright, distinct orange colour and a firm texture. The resulting taste profile should be slightly briny without a fishy inking and melts in your mouth. Visually, each tongue of Uni should also be dry and firm, and should not look as though they are melting or sagging.
Uni is actually very healthy. A 100g portion of sea urchins contains appx 150 calories and very little fat. The fat is also almost all unsaturated fat. For every 100g of sea urchin, there are only 1.75 grams of polyunsaturated fat. Sea urchins also contain omega-3 fatty acids, which can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of an abnormal heart beat.
