When you have dashi with these Fermented bonito flakes, a refined aroma will waft from the transparent, beautiful stock and you will feel the mild umami flavor of Fermented bonito. With only one sip the flavor will spread through your mouth. They can be used to make a very refined dashi stock, suitable for foods that showcase the taste of ingredients and the aroma of Japanese-style stocks.
