We would like to introduce AAA Gokujo Uni to all Uni lovers around the globe.
The term "Gokujo" 極上 signifies the highest or exceptional quality, often referred to as AAA grade. Gokujo Uni is procured through Uni auctions, where a vast quantity of Uni is brought to the market each morning, with an average of 1,000 trays being sold daily. The Uni auctioneers then evaluate the Uni and assign grades, which typically fall into categories such as AAA, AA, A+, A, and regular.
Wholesalers then purchase the Uni from the auctioneers based on the auction price. The quality of the Uni may fluctuate due to various factors such as weather, season, and condition. If you request the auctioneers to provide the best quality Uni available on that day, they will typically purchase the AAA grade Uni for you.
Experience the ultimate in luxury with Gokujo Uni that is only available at Hokkaido Uni Shop.
Brand Name: Ginjiro, Kaneo, Orion, Kawamura, Takahashi, Kissho, etc.

What is Mutenka Uni?
AAA Uni is also referred to as "Mutenka Uni". Mutenka or 無添加 means organic Uni that is processed naturally with no chemicals. Most of the Uni we eat, regardless of where it comes from, is processed with alum (preservative) to maintain its shape and aid in preservation. Only AAA grade Uni can hold itself together without these additives (unless it is kept in saltwater) so you can enjoy the pure taste of Uni.
