Why choose a hinoki cypress wood cutting board?
When it comes to cleanliness and food safety, wood cutting boards aren’t generally long-lived. Without resurfacing, grooves and scratches can start to harbor some pretty gnarly bacteria, particularly if the wood doesn’t dry very quickly. Of course, most home cooks aren’t particularly eager to spray down every food surface with harsh and corrosive chemicals after cooking. Wood cutting boards are easy on the eyes, but not the most hygienic spaces for food prep. The hinoki cypress cutting board, on the other hand, does some natural disinfecting for you
A lot of it comes down to a little chemical compound called hinokitiol. It’s found in many members of the cypress tree family, including junipers and sequoias. Your average cypress tree enjoys moist soil and a humid atmosphere. In such conditions, it pays to have a little protection from bacteria, infection, fungus, and insects. Funnily enough, a scientifically-proven and naturally antifungal, bacteria-stopping wood is also pretty attractive material for making wood cutting boards. Thus, the hinoki cypress cutting board.
