About the product
Kintsuba is an abbreviation of “Kintsuba yaki” (Kintsuba grill), the Ogura red bean paste wrapped in dough made of wheat flour, and grilled at the surface. They are traditional sweets, produced since the Edo period. What’s being sold now uses agar to encased and shaped squares for mass production. This form was devised in the Meiji era.
The red bean paste that is used in many of traditional Japanese sweets can be classified into 3 types, depending on how the beans are treated after being cooked. Tsubu-an is rough-grained, and textured with shells of the beans. Koshi-an is finely filtered and is in smooth texture. Ogura an is a combination of Koshi-an and large sized Azuki beans cooked in sugar still in their shape mixed in, although some people refer to Tsubu-an as Ogura an as well as they look very similar.
