In Japan, these dried tuna flakes are sometimes called bonito and katsuobushi. Bonito refers to the slipjack tuna and katsuobushi is the name for the way these flakes are prepared. Bonito flakes are used in many Asian recipes - you can stuff them in rice balls or use them to make a broth for miso soup, incorporate them into a sauce, or even grill them and throw them a salad. Check out our Tuna Flakes blog to learn how to use this extremely versatile ingredient, and to see a few recipes. Give it a shot, and we know you'll love it!

This has been one of our favorite products from Asian Food Grocer for long time but...recently seems new method is being us in packing that fills bag with something similar to air, maybe some kind of gas to maybe preserve freshness of the dried tuna. Makes bag like a balloon and turns dried tuna slices into crumbs. We hope they catch on soon to problem and fix it.

Great for making dashi! And then I will dry some of the used flakes to use for kitty treats (they love the stuff!). Good price even compared to local store prices.
