Ecila Choco Inc. is Canada’s first chocolate company specializing in using sake and sake-kasu in chocolate. I am the founder of the company. I invented new recipes to create and develop sake chocolate & sake-kasu chocolate in different flavours.
I use delicate dark chocolate shells, each containing at least 70% cocoa content, to envelop the irresistibly smooth fillings, ranging from pure sake ganache, sake ganache with dried fruit, sake jello, sake-kasu matcha, sake-kasu chocolate mousse and sake-kasu soy milk.
What is Sake-kasu?
Sake-kasu is the solid cake left over from the filtration process during sake production. It is highly nutritious and contains undissolved rice, yeast, and about 8% alcohol. The lees obtained by sake brewing is jam-packed with protein, carbohydrates, fibre and other nutrients.
The remarkable health and beauty benefits of sake and sake-kasu, such as improving blood circulation, moisturizing and whitening the skin, were discovered in Japan hundreds of years ago. In recent decades, scientists have been conducting scientific research into this field and gathering evidence to prove the health and beauty benefits.
“To form the magical link between creative flavours and health.”
All of my products are made by hand in Canada.
