GREEMINAL®OM, color preserving matcha of AIYA
(Registered trademark No. 5221678)

 Appeal of matcha lies in its green beauty along with the taste and aroma. However, the color brightness was inevitably lost at the time of food processing. Developing matcha which does not lose color when heat is applied was a longtime dream of the industry.

 After 10 years of thorough researches, AIYA produced color preserving matcha GREEMINAL®OM. With a special production process, impalpable powder of matcha is uniformly coated with edible oil. The product can be used in the same manner as ordinary matcha.
