Organic & Gluten Free Options

Here at Japan Centre, we’re delighted to unveil our new ranges of organic and gluten free options both in store and online. We believe the Japanese diet offers great, natural, healthy alternatives to Western food. Let’s take a look at our shiny new categories.


The organic movement is increasingly appealing to those of us who want to know our food is produced in harmony with nature. Excitingly, Asia is seeing a massive drive towards a preference for organic food, particularly in China and Japan. Not only is organic food beneficial for dear Mother Nature (probably our favourite Mother, sorry Theresa!), it’s also healthier for our bodies, as it’s free from harmful chemicals and pesticides. We’ve got a great selection of organic delights here at Japan Centre, including tofu, miso, sushi rice, rice vinegar and more. And it’s not just day-to-day cupboard staples, you can even throw an au natural drinks party with organic sake. Now there’s no way you can say the organic movement is boring!

Gluten Free

If you’re intolerant to wheat, Japanese food can be a great basis for an alternative diet from the wheat-intensive Western one. Rice and other gluten free options are the staple of Japanese cuisine and can be transformed into all sorts of weird and wonderful creations. This is great for maintaining a diet free of wheat, rye, barley, triticale, kamut, malt and other pesky ingredients that can have adverse affects on some people. We’ve selected the best gluten free options including Malony Harusame Noodles made from potato and corn, low-cal shirataki noodles made from mountain yam and shiitake mushroom powder that gives a flavoursome boost to all savoury dishes.

So if you’re looking to live a gluten-free lifestyle but still eat wonderful food which you love, check out some of the options we’ve selected for you here at Japan Centre.
