Japanese researchers find use for discarded fish, mandarin peels

Seasoning created by Kindai University students to hit stores by spring 2023

The rice seasoning created by a team of Kindai University researchers is made from red sea bream juveniles and mandarin peels that would otherwise be thrown away.

OSAKA -- A research team at Kindai University's Faculty of Agriculture has developed a furikake rice seasoning made from unused red sea bream juveniles and mandarin orange peels that would otherwise be thrown away.

The powder, which is rich in calcium and iron, is meant to reduce food waste by putting the unused ingredients to good use, contributing to the achievement of the U.N.'s sustainable development goals, the researchers said.
