Umeboshi plums have been a staple of Japanese cuisine for centuries. This little fruit with a tart sourness and salty flavor is also known as Japanese plum or Japanese apricot, as the ume fruit is closely related to the apricot.
Although this tasty fruit paste is very acidic, it happens to be very alkaline forming in the body, and acts as an excellent flavor booster in salad dressings, dips, or applied as a marinade.
Umeboshi paste helps support digestion and liver health, so it makes a great addition to a miso broth to wake up the digestion first thing in the morning to stimulate appetite, and to help the elimination pathways of the body, supporting the elimination of toxins.
Umeboshi plums also happen to improve and support bone health, as well as strengthening the teeth and balance blood sugar.
Our Umeboshi is traditionally prepared, high quality paste that will delight the senses.
Be sure to keep your Umeboshi Plum Paste refrigerated before and after opening. Use a clean spoon each time you get more miso, being careful not to introduce outside bacteria to the jar.

In the past, I've occasionally enjoyed umeboshi. However, I had to make an effort to remember that I even had it in the kitchen. A few months ago, after reading another Shen Blossom review, I started drinking a cup of miso/umeboshi soup when I first get up, along with a couple of drops of the Black Bamboo vinegar under my tongue. My body loves it. My physical foundation is stronger and more balanced. It feels like it's nourishing areas that other foods weren't getting to. It's an excellent way to start the day.
The quality is great. It helps my digestion a lot. It makes my body feel balanced and alive
