Ogimi’s green shekwasha peel powder
Shekwasha is a citrus fruit which is cultivated mainly in Okinawa in Japan. Green shekwasha is harvested while unripe.
Shekwasha contains the healthy ingredient nobiletin. In particular, the pericarp of green shekwasha in Ogimi village contains an abundant amount of Nobiletin. Analysis of the pericarp of the Ogimi village's green shekwasha found that on average there are 620 mg of Nobiletin per 100 g of the peel. The concentration of Nobiletin in juice extracted from pulp with the peel of usual shekwasha is only 3.6 mg / 100 g, which indicates that the peel of the Ogimi’s green shekwasha has approximately 170 times more Nobiletin.
This product contains 9 mg of Nobiletin per two packets. This is equivalent to the Nobiletin of ten pieces of shekwasha*.
Nobiletin is a type of flavonoid. It is one of the ingredients that protect fruits from the strong UV rays in Okinawa as well as pests. The concentration of Nobiletin increases in the summer to early autumn when sunlight is strong, there are many pests, and the fruit is unripe.

Miyako island’s sugar cane dietary fiber
Miyako island is a small island about 290 km away from the main island of Okinawa and was created by uplifting coral reefs. Most of the farmers in the island grow sugar cane so Miyako island is called “an island of sugar cane”.
Sugarcane is famous as a base material for refined sugar. After squeezing molasses out of sugar cane to make sugar, its fibers remain.
As the name suggests, sugar cane fiber is rich in dietary fiber which accounts for about 90% of the total weight. Iron is also 17 times more abundant in sugar cane fiber than chicken liver. The fiber also contains functional ingredients such as ferulic acid and octacosanol. As sugar cane is a base material of refined sugar, you may think it has a lot of sugar, but as the molasses is squeezed out to make sugar, the remaining sugar content in the fiber is as low as 5%.

Shell ginger leaf powder
Shell ginger is one of Okinawa's most famous herbs. The leaves are large, and from May to June it will sprout spiked white flowers.
In Okinawa there is a tradition to eat rice cakes called Muu Qi on December 8th in the lunar calendar, praying for health and longevity. It is believed that the shell ginger leaves are used because the leaf has been thought of as a medicinal herb that repels evils.
Since shell ginger grows naturally in Okinawa, though there are few farmers who grow shell ginger. To ensure food safety we searched and found a farmer who cultivates shell ginger with organic farming techniques in Itoman city in Okinawa prefecture.
