How does our Pre-Order Uni works?
One reason for this is that uni is considered a mysterious food because its taste is not related to its color or shape. Therefore, it is difficult for ordinary people to judge its quality based on appearance alone.
While it would be ideal to rely on a buyer who has expertise in judging uni quality, establishing a direct connection with a buyer can also be challenging. As a result, it is extremely difficult for the general public to obtain good quality uni from Toyosu Fish Market.
It's a Mysterious seafood
Uni remain a mysterious delicacy that is often reserved for connoisseurs and professionals.
It is typically associated with sushi restaurants.
Similarly, at the Toyosu market, there is limited knowledge among brokers regarding the origins and optimal seasonal flavors of Uni.
We offer carefully selected Uni sourced by experienced buyers who possess comprehensive knowledge of this delicacy.
The Color of Uni does not have much influence on its taste
The color of uni can vary, and it is influenced by factors such as their diet, age, and gender.
Uni are hermaphrodites, starting as females and later transitioning to males as they grow.
The part we consume is called the gonad, which refers to both the ovaries (in females) and testes (in males).
There is little difference in the gonads between males and females, and they are not separated or packed separately.
It is commonly believed that females have lighter colors while males have darker colors, but it is not clear whether this distinction is due to gender or simply the result of aging. Additionally, the color can also be influenced by the type (color) of seaweed in their diet.
Ultimately, the relationship between color and taste is not straightforward and clearly understood.
How Buyers select the best ones?
When it comes to determining the quality of uni at their place of origin, it can be challenging to assess the raw material based solely on appearance.
Identifying uni that have consumed a favorable diet is difficult by external appearance alone, and there is an element of uncertainty that can only be resolved by opening them up.
Furthermore, even after opening them up, it remains challenging to discern the taste based on visual cues, as mentioned earlier.
Therefore, acquiring high-quality uni requires a high level of expertise and discernment. Experienced buyers with a wealth of exposure to numerous uni have developed an AI-like ability to identify indicators of excellent uni quality.
Taste of Uni is determined by their food
Uni primarily consume seaweed, with kelp being the preferred type for enhancing their flavor.
