Deats was born from two traditional Japanese ingredients, “Okara” (a product created in the process of making tofu) and “Konjac”.
It is a next-generation health food, likened to meat and fish, but is low in calories and high in dietary fiber.
Deats’s DNA is based on the “Mottainai(let’s not waste) spirit” that the Japanese have cherished since ancient times. Our patented food technology is “Konjac”, combined with food residues (like “Okara”), that have typically been discarded, even though they can be eaten deliciously.
Soybeans × Konjac
Deats, born from Okara, is rich in dietary fiber!
No meat or fish is used.
In 2005~2010, it was trending as the ’go-to’ ingredient for dieting.
Because we wanted more people to live healthier and happy lives, Deats was reborn to become tastier and healthier.
With our trade secret technical process, unlike many other processed soy foods, our products produce no unpleasant odors. In addition, it can be delicately seasoned, while used as not only an alternative to meat, but also as a substitute in a variety of different meals.
In Europe and the United States, more and more people are choosing meat alternatives made with plant-based ingredients, instead of livestock meat (such as beef and pork).
For this reason, Plant-Based Food has a growing support group, for those who are highly health-conscious, and those who want to actively incorporate vegetable proteins.
There is an abundant amount of glucomannan (a type of dietary fiber) contained inside.
When exposed to water, it greatly expands, so it swells in the stomach by ingesting it.
You’ll feel satiated with lower than usual amounts of food, while improving your bowel movements.
In addition, glucomannan is said to alleviate the rise in blood sugar levels after meals, and lowers cholesterol levels. It’s said to also prevent lifestyle-related diseases, with the addition to dieting.
