Product description

Hoshiimo - Beniharuka

What is Hoshiimo?

Hoshiimo is made from sweet potato which is steamed, dried and sliced. It has a sticky texture, a bright yellow/orange color and a strong sweet almost caramel taste.

The white or sometimes dark powder on the surface is crystallized natural sugar from the dried sweet potato itself. Hoshiimo does not contain added sugars or artificial colourants.

Hoshiimo can be made from different sweet potato varieties resulting in a different taste and texture. In this case Beniharuka sweet potatoes are used.

The name Beniharuka originated from the obvious excellence in taste and appearance. “BENI” means “red”, while “HARUKA” means “far superior”. The amount harvested annually is the same as, or slightly larger than the TAMAYUTAKA variety. More potato farmers are increasing their production in this variety because of it has popularity due to the high sugar content. It has a Sticky- like texture, bright yellow skin, and a strong sweetness to the taste.

How to use Hoshiimo?

Hoshiimo can be used as a side snack/dish. The sugars can be caramelised by using a torch on the white sugars on the surface. It's a great combination in any ice-cream dessert.
