Excellent, especially for the price Apr 06, 2009
By Anya C.
I also use this to get the magnesium in my diet. I pour about a half teaspoon into water, swirl it around to dissolve it, and throw it back like a shot. Follow with a little coffee and it's over with quickly. Having enough magnesium gives you great energy - almost like coffee without feeling lousy afterwards.
As for the company, the nigari was shipped very quickly and arrived at my office in less than the expected time. I was impressed enough that I am about to order another bag from them.

Magnesium chloride at its finest. Apr 07, 2010
By Ken M
I am on my second bag of this now. I use RO (Reverse Osmosis 'sort of distilled') water a lot and was worried about missing some important minerals. I take a thermos with cold water to work daily and usually put about 1/4 t(teaspoon) of this with 1/8 t potassium chloride, and about 1/4 t of plain old baking soda. If I have some lemon or lime available, I will squirt in a little juice. To me it tastes good and provides a good source of magnesium.

Ohsawa Nigari is tops Sep 27, 2009
By Thomas Van Gorden
I've been making tofu for years. Ohsawa nigari is very smooth, finely granulated and makes a perfect product. I am very pleased with this nigari. It's the best.

Makes good tofu Jan 31, 2012
I needed a little Nigari (magnesium chloride) to experiment with making tofu in my rice cooker (Sanyo). It worked and after reading a little, I was able to make good tofu the way I wanted. This bag will make a ton of tofu and I would have appreciated a smaller package, but since it is essentially a salt, it likely has a long shelf life.

It Works Magic in Soy Milk! Jan 29, 2014
By Sondra G. Oravetz
Every time I make tofu I'm always amazed what happens when you add the Nigari - pure magic! I make about 8-10 pounds of tofu at one time which is 25 cups of soy milk (made from scratch from 6 cups of soaked beans) using 8-10 tsp. of Nigari coagulant and I get the most beautiful fluffy curds to press into blocks. I find the flavor of the tofu is sweet and natural without any nasty lemon or vinegary flavor that you can get when using lemon or vinegar. One pound of Nigari will last me maybe a year or more so I have lots of tofu in my future to eat....love the stuff! Will buy again.
