Omayu's Seaweed Heavy Road in the Rare Road -The Difference of Ausa and Aosa ~

Dry blue powder


If you want to cook okonomiyaki, it's not "Aosa" but after all "Aonori"! The scent is much different.

e? What is the difference between "Aonori" and "Aosa"? ? Isn't it the difference in the product name? Omayu's strange commitment?

Many may have thought so.

In fact, "Aonori" and "Aosa" are completely different seaweed! I don't mean I am independent.

These green seaweeds are similar. If you use "Aonori" instead of "Aosa", your usual okonomiyaki, takoyaki, and fried Isobe will be more flavorful and delicious!

In addition, you can also make use of exquisite dishes that are lively because it is Aonori.

I want many people to know about this delicious "Aonori" and enjoy it!

This time, I would like to introduce the varieties, characteristics, and the difference between "Aonori", and "Aosa".


"Aonori" and "Aosa" with similar but different varieties

Classification of green algae


The same companion named Aosa belongs to separate seaweed called "Aonori" and "Aosa". It belongs to the same office, but it feels like a group of "V -Chick" and "T〇Kio".

Suddenly, here

Aonori Quiz 1st Question!

Green powdered seaweed with product names such as "blue glue powder" and "haus powder" seen near the okonomiyaki powder of supermarkets. These are all blue, 〇 or ×? !

〇! Everyone who answered immediately, sorry! I'm sorry! The correct answer is △ near x.

Of course, there are times when it is "Aonori", but recently there are more "Aosa" products.

The second question of Aonori Quiz!

A dark green raw seaweed with a notation such as "Raw Blue Nori" sold in a tray at the fresh fish corner. These are really blossom, 〇 or ×? !

You say "blue glue", right? Sorry, incorrect! The correct answer is x.

In fact, this is a seaweed of another group that is neither "Aonori" nor "Aosa". (See the classification diagram) "Aonori" is generally not distributed in a raw state.

And the trouble is this "Hitogusa". Most of the product names "Aosa" and "Aosanori" are sold in a dry powder type. Most of the "Aosa" in the restaurant's soup is this human speech and is also used as a raw material for seaweed tsukudani.

"Blue glue powder" is actually Aosa, and "raw blue nori" and "Aosanori" are actually human speech. 。 It's confusing.

・ ・ ・ Only here, we may be confused by the Siebeji staff (whispering that the president cannot hear)

So where is the real "Aonori"? !


Rare and expensive blossom

The most fragrant and well -known "Sujoi Nori" in Aonori lives in a brackish waters mixed with sea and river water, and is known as Kochi and Tokushima prefectures.

At present, there are few natural products in the production area, and the production volume of sea level aquaculture is drastically reduced, and it is treated as a high -end item due to its rare value, and it is sometimes traded at a price of nearly 50,000 yen.

It features the scent of the beach, the bright green, and the goodness of mouthfeel.

Sea Vegetable's "His Suji-Aonori" uses only Sujia Onori, which is said to be the finest variety in this Aonori!

(Eh? Why can you sell a stable amount of blossom in Seabejitable?! !!)

Aosa and Hitogusa have a large production, so they are reasonably priced, so they are widely available in general supermarkets. I think that many people have used it for everyday dishes because it is easy to get.

Although it is a little luxury but the strength of the scent, the Aonori is outstanding.


Is "Aonori sticking to your teeth" a lie? !

Here, let's take a look at the raw Aonori and Aosa.

Aonori is too narrow and looks like a bundle of threads. As the name suggests, the Suzia Onori used by Siebige is characteristic.

A form that is somewhat healed, like a tentacle, swaying like a tentacle.

Aosa, on the other hand, has a fluttering figure like a thin film.

I think some people have the image that "blue glue powder is easy to stick to your teeth", but the reason was that Aosa, a raw material, was flat.

The generally distributed ones are dried and crushed, so the square shape seen from above is almost "Aosa". 

In that respect, the elongated shape of the blossom is likely to be a reason why it is hard to stick to the teeth and is good.

Of course, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, and fried Isobe.

Aonori, which has a gorgeous fragrance enough to be treated as a luxury item, has a rich taste accent when matched with white fish and dairy products.
