Producing pharmaceutical-free, safe and delicious meat Rearing healthy and lively pigs
Having devoted ourselves to this goal, we eventually discovered “Kakegawa Yeast” (registered as Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Kakegawa). Yeast is the fermentation agent essential to all fermented foods. By using yeast-fermented feed, healthy and lively livestock can be reared. Kakegawa Yeast is a precise strain that provides all the benefits of yeast.
40 years for development of Kakegawa yeast fungus.
The fermented material is then sterilized and amino-acids are formed. It is then finally turned into high-quality Kakegawa Yeast-Fermented Feed. So it is savory, digestible, nutritious, and benefits blood circulation. This allows pigs to grow up healthily without any burdens, thereby producing excellent meat that has both muscle texture and fat.
Kakegawa Yeast-Fed Pork is only derived from pigs that are fattened on sterilized, yeast-fermented feed without the use of antibiotics or pharmaceuticals. (The term “fattening period” refers to a stage of fattening where animals are fed with grain-based feed.)
The fat of this pig is a very healthy，and with high content of unsaturated fatty acid (same ingredient as olive oil).
The entire production of Kakegawa Yeast-Fed Pork, from making the proprietary yeast-fermented feed to rearing the pigs, is fully controlled and operated by our company using a secure integrated manufacturing system.
High-quality fat allows for unprecedented taste
The pig breeds chosen for fattening with Kakegawa Yeast-Fermented Feed are known for having relatively low levels of animal fat and yet still possess relatively high “plant fat” content. The meat from these pigs is also famous for having high concentrations of unsaturated fatty acids, thus producing healthy and mellow pork fat.
