Abstract:

To provide a method for producing brewed vinegar that is rich in amino acids, high in nutritional value and superior in color tone and flavor, that devises efficient utilization of shochu distillation waste liquid and shortening of its production period, and to provide processed foods.

The method for producing the brewed vinegar comprises the following processes of adding to shochu distillation waste liquid with Murasakimasari (a kind of sweet potato) as the raw material koji (malted rice) and a yeast-cultured liquid, followed by adjusting the temperature of the system to 20-40C for about the initial 24 hours, in order to promote yeast proliferation; conducting aerobic culture, under conditions of 0.2-1.0 vvm for aeration level and 200-600 rpm for agitation speed. Next, aeration is stopped for about one to six days, anaerobic culture is carried out under the condition of 0-250 rpm for agitation speed to obtain unrefined sake. Then to the unrefined sake acetic acid-cultured liquid is added, followed by adjusting of the temperature to 20-40C, and then conducting aerobic culture under the conditions of 0.2-1.0 vvm for aeration level and 200-600 rpm for agitation speed, thus ending the acetic acid fermentation in 20-50 h. After the fermentation, the system is subjected to sterilization treatment at about 85C for about 10 min, then is subjected to centrifugal separation by decanter, to membrane filtration, to degermination and finally to refining.
