Lake Biwa has become a cute jelly
The blue color jelly is ramune-flavored and colored with butterfly pea. There are milk agars that looks like white pebbles and Ayu fish made from Yokan in blue color jelly. It is said that it is a skill of a Japanese sweets confectionery that can punch out such a small Ayu fish.
It is said that the color of Lake Biwa seen from Takashima City is very similar to the transparent blue color of butterfly pea. Desire to express the beautiful Lake Biwa … and desire that more people to know about Shiga. “Lake Biwa Drops” was born from these desires. It seems that it was a series of trial and error, such as devising to bring out a transparent blue color, balancing jelly and milk agar, and the necessary processing to keep it for a long time.
“I would like to develop products using butterfly pea cultivated in Takashima City and convey the charm of Shiga. I would like many people to eat jelly packed with Lake Biwa,” said the managing director. Mr. Katsuhito Nishizawa. They are particular about the packaging so that you can feel Lake Biwa from the moment you pick up the product, and you can also use it for gifts. It is scheduled to go on sale around the summer of 2021, and can be purchased at stores and online shops.
