A friend of rice
It was in Taisho early that friends of rice cakes were made in Kumamoto. It was invented by Mr. Sueyoshi Yoshikimaru, a pharmacist.
At that time Japan was in the age of food shortage, and calcium was chronically shortage. In order to make up for it, Mr. Yoshimaru thought about "to finely divide the fish with bones, to taste deliciously and eat with rice".
And it was "friend of rice" that was born.
Friends of rice with history like this have been accredited as the original sprinkle of sprinkle at the nationwide sprinkle association. Children who do not like fish today also have great support from many people as a sprinkle that delivers tasty calcium.
(From Futaba official website)


Photographs taken by Noahara. Brown granules "to refine the fish with each bone and taste it deliciously" is the reason why friends of rice cook fried rice. After taking a picture, it was delicious.

A friend of rice is popular also in Instagram.


Also for lunch.

To the manufacturing site of a friend of fried rice

So we had a chance to visit the manufacturing site of the friend of fried rice, so I will show how it is!


Mr. Kiyota, director of Futaba Production Department, Inc., got informed. Thank you!
Oh, what I am wearing is an original T - shirt, designed with rice cooked on rice. I have not written anything as a character as a friend of rice, but Kiyota who is truly being made noticed by one shot (lol)


The first thing I saw was a friend of rice, before shipment. Vortex is piling up high. How many cups of rice? What?


As I enter the manufacturing factory, I wear cleanwear (sanitary clothing). We will also take the chile with care.


The wind blows up. There is something exciting.


Wash thoroughly hands and alcohol disinfection at the end. Again, where we handle foods is sanitary environment strict.

Into the manufacturing site

Now, you are ready to enter the manufacturing site, you are infiltrating into the site where a friend of rice is made.


When entering, it was filled with the fragrance that reduces the stomach mixed with soy sauce and fish scent. I can go for 3 scallions of white oyster just by scent.


First of all, we visited from the seasoning of the main powder of rice, fried rice powder.
Picture is a paste powder. Iruko seems to have powdered on its own after screening quality items that meet friends of rice.

Iriko
Boiled potatoes. In western Japan we call it "Noriko".
It is also written as Irico or roasted. Nagasaki Prefecture is a major production place.


We mix with soy sauce etc. made for friends of rice and season it.

After that, we will process the pasta flavored with seasoning to the unique grain of rice with friends, but that is a company secret and shooting.
(There may be a secret of deliciousness there)


This equipment is dryer. Garlic baked rookies still contain a lot of moisture, so you need to dry them.


20 thing passing through the dryer. It is in the same state as what is enclosed in a friend of rice.


It will be carried on the belt conveyor more and more. It seems to be able to produce as much as 1 days 1 tons in a dryer.
1 ton = 1,000kg, 1,000,000g So it is 2.5g for a meal type sachet ....
Simply think 40 a million meals! What? It seems not to be working everyday, but it is amazing! !
