MACROBIOTICS: The Key to Health and Happiness
More than a low fat, sugar- and dairy-free, high fiber diet, macrobiotics is a way of life that brings one into balance with nature. It encompasses every facet of life, not simply physical well-being. It includes an awareness that personal health is influenced by nutrition, fitness, food safety, environmental concerns, spirituality, lifestyle values, and social responsibility.
The foods we eat become part of us, and creating balance in each meal can be a practical, positive step toward creating a balance in all aspects of life. Creating balanced meals means choosing foods that are fresh, in season, and of the highest quality. Both scientific research and traditional lore have shown that grain-based diets, which include a variety of vegetables, beans, and sea vegetables, promote balance, health and vitality for most of the world's populations.
The macrobiotic approach emphasizes the choice of healthy foods, that is, foods that are organic whenever possible, non-GMO, sugar-free, and made without the use of preservatives or additives. Special Japanese foods such as green tea, kuzu, traditional soy sauce, rice vinegar, umeboshi, and miso are made by traditional methods that preserve and enhance their healthfulness and vitality.
Based on over 30 years of experience, Mitoku CEO Akiyoshi Kazama personally selects each of our company's foods. Mr Kazama has traveled throughout Japan finding foods that meet the highest macrobiotic standards of quality for both ingredients and traditional manufacturing. Mr. Kazama believes in the old Japanese adage "isoku dogen," which means "food is medicine". The Mitoku label is your assurance that these traditional foods are of extraordinary quality and are made to promote health and happiness.
