Without any preservatives, bleaching agents or food colorings. They draw clear water for only necessary amount from well every morning, and spend time and effort to make these Mitsugashi (sweetened food). The vegetable flavors are embraced as they are in sugar, I feel like to eat vegetables rather than sweets!
