It’s not a paradox – Sophie’s Kitchen is a revolution in ready-to-eat, vegan / vegetarian plant-based food products! The current dependence on dwindling foods from the sea concerns us! We’ve taken Elephant Yam Root (Konjac, Amorphophallus konjac, pronounced Koun-jaek), that has been used across Asia for centuries, as the base for our products. The Japanese have traditionally used Konjac as a health food with a high source of fiber, and contains very few calories. We use traditional land and sea plants (such as highly nutritious seaweed) as the foundation of our philosophy and our products! We created our products as a seafood alternative – a delicious and sustainable alternative to seafood from the ocean! Children (like our Sophie) of all ages enjoy the unique flavors of the ocean without being tempted to eat precious fishes!
