Musashi Foods Introduces First Green Sriracha and Authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo in United States

Sriracha has lived in the spicy condiment spotlight for the past few years making a flavored appearance in everything from popcorn to potato chips and every possible application in between. Musashi Foods has broken the mold of traditional red sriracha with the launch of its Midori Sriracha made from green serrano peppers, turning the heat up on this popular hot sauce.

Additionally this New York-based specialty food company has launched an authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo, the only of its kind on the market today. Both the Midori Sriracha ($4.99) and Japanese Spicy Mayo ($5.49) are available now for purchase at Amazon.com and musashifoods.com.  Also, these unique and all natural products will be on store shelves throughout New York and beyond in the weeks and months to come.

“I saw a need for an authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo in the marketplace and spent the  past year perfecting the recipe and developing the necessary infrastructure to bring this product to a mass market,” said Musashi Foods Founder and President Gideon Sarraf.

Sarraf is an accomplished entrepreneur with a passion for hot and spicy food. In fact, Sarraf has long made his own sriracha sauce at home, perfecting the heat level to satisfy his advanced palate. After realizing how popular truly authentic Japanese Spicy Mayo is, Sarraf set out to bring this product to market a little over a year ago. During the process and research he also spotted a need for a green sriracha with a different flavor profile than the traditional red sriracha on store shelves today.

“The response to these products has been wholly positive, and we hope to bring it to supermarkets across the country. People have been actively searching for these products; now they finally have a place to buy them,” he said.

Musashi Foods will be at the Summer Fancy Food Show in a booth located in the “New Brands on the Shelf” Pavilion, located on Level 1, behind the 3400 aisle.

Pata Negra to Introduce Imperial White Chorizo at Fancy Food Show

ImperialPata Negra LLC will offer a taste of chorizo as it was made during an era in Spain before red peppers arrived from the new world in the 16th century. This Imperial Vela Blanco chorizo is dry-cured and features a gourmet mixture of premium American pork meat, garlic and other hand-selected spices. Because the chorizo is made without paprika, it features a milder taste and cooler color than the more common, crimson red chorizos – like Imperial’s Vela Mild and Vela Hot. 
“We want to bring chorizo making in all its authenticity to the United States,” says General Manager of Pata Negra LLC, Ignacio Saez de Ibarra. “Our most recent creation takes chorizo making back to a time before paprika was available in Spain, producing a dry cured sausage that lends a milder taste for charcuterie enthusiasts everywhere. ”

The Imperial line is carefully crafted under the guidance of master chorizo-maker Dr. Antonio Libran, a veterinarian expert with more than 30 years of experience in the food and Spanish cured meats industries. The team sources premium American pork meat, the world’s best Spanish paprika and only the finest hand-selected spices. Each features a lengthy, dry-curing process to ensure all natural ingredients season slowly to lend each chub the authentic flair and flavor of old Spain. This Spanish artisan technique produces a signature bouquet and texture not found in mass-produced chorizo varieties, both domestic and imported.

imperial-chorizoThe Imperial brand was introduced in 2013 and is crafted by a group of Spanish entrepreneurs who came to the United States to produce authentic, dry-cured chorizo that with each bite exudes the flair and flavor of old Spain.
