Event Overview

Improving food self-sufficiency ratio is a big issue in Japan, and increasing the use of domestic wheats is one of the effective means. Our laboratory has conducted studies to increase the use of domestic wheats for Udon noodles. “Norin61” (N61), a domestic wheat that was once popular in Japan, remains a perennial favorite because of its excellent sensory characteristics including the unique taste/flavor compared with Australian Standard White (ASW) wheat. Currently, N61 has been replaced by “Satonosora”, which is one of the successors of N61. Satonosora has desirable properties for agricultural producer such as disease resistance and crop yields like ASW, but it is inferior in Udon making because of a less unique flavor compared with N61. Through the chemical analysis to clarify the formation mechanism of the Udon flavor, I established a technique for flavor enrichment in the noodle-making process. The technique has been recently applied to the development of new value-added noodle products by various companies.
