Halal Miso Ramen
Having in recent decades become a truly international food with a broad global footprint it can be said that Ramen now transcends borders.
Literally and figuratively – both physical and cultural ones.
Ramen is ubiquitous and omnipresent, spanning countries and continents, cultures and traditions, persuasions and religions.
A versatile and diverse food genre as it is, Ramen derives its universality from its great capacity to adapt to local tastes and circumstances owing to a very broad and flexible nature of the Ramen concept itself, and a continuous process of innovation that has been occuring in the Ramen world since it has been introduced into the Japanese cuisine.
By its nature Japanese culture is remarkable for its ability to adapt to and transform cultural influences and artifacts brought to it from abroad.
Japanese culture and its cuisine are also characterized by their distinguished inclusivity and tolerance, leaving no one feeling excluded or alienated, and their ability to be accepted by people all over the world.
In this regard, Yamato strongly believes that Japanese cuisine in general and Ramen in particular have a tremendous potential to serve as a great unifier — which is so much important in our ever more disunited world.
Ramen is peace. Ramen is unity. Ramen is equality and equity, toleration and respect.
Ramen nourishes and comforts, calms and invigorates, gives sustenance and instills with hope. And it does it without exception or discrimination.
Among things that constitute our cultural identity religion plays an important role, and in many instances such role can even be the most important one in a person’s worldview.
Religions define our beliefs, ways of life, and to a no small degree our culinary practices and in some cases regulations.
Islam is one of the major world religions with many adherents in many parts of the world. Islam obliges its believers to follow a particular set of food-related rules known as Halal, mainly referring to the types of animal products allowed for consumption, and ways of their preparation.
Being an international company with a global outreach and staff consisting of members hailing from many parts and countries of the world, Yamato is honored to have in its ranks a number of Muslims working as part of our diverse but united team of noodle professionals.
In light of this, as well from a position of a company that has been at the forefront of Ramen equipment development and Ramen education, Yamato believes it is in a strong position to offer its insight on how Ramen cuisine can be adapted to the regulations of the Halal code.
On August 5, 2022, join Yamato for a free online class dedicated to Miso Ramen adjusted to conform to Halal requirements.
In particular we will discuss
- why Miso Ramen can serve as a perfect Halal option
