In fact, it is said that there are 500-600 nutrients in sake lees that are beneficial to humans.
It is not just a fermented food, it is an amazing food that can be expected to have a variety of benefits if you keep eating sake lees.
Sake lees are made from rice, which is saccharified and broken down by the Japanese national fungus 'koji mold', and further enhanced in nutritional value by the action of bacteria such as 'yeast' and 'lactic acid bacteria'.
This issue is about one of these amazing nutrients , ferulic acid.
Ferulic acid, an antioxidant component of sake lees, is an organic compound present in plant cell walls.
It is present in other foodstuffs such as rice, wheat, rye, barley, coffee, apples, artichokes, peanuts and oranges.
As an antioxidant, it reduces cell oxidation and is effective in preventing ageing and cancer.
In particular, this ferulic acid has been shown to have an anti-tumour effect on breast and liver cancer.
Recent research has also shown that it may be effective in preventing Alzheimer's disease.
It helps prevent the build-up of phosphoproteins in the brain, which is a cause of Alzheimer's disease.
Ferulic acid is amazing, not just for anti-ageing.
To fully reflect the nutrients in sake lees, it is said that 50 g per day is required.
