History and Crafting Process:

Perilla powder has a long-standing tradition in Korean culinary heritage, crafted from finely ground perilla seeds renowned for their nutty flavor and aromatic qualities. At Kevin's Choice, the crafting process is a labor of love. High-quality perilla seeds are carefully roasted at low temperatures to preserve their natural essence. Meticulous husk removal ensures purity, while fine grinding guarantees a smooth texture and enhanced flavor profile. This dedication to craftsmanship results in perilla powder of unparalleled quality, embodying the essence of Korean culinary heritage.

Why Kevin's Choice Perilla Powder Stands Out:

Kevin's Choice prides itself on sourcing the finest domestically grown perilla seeds, cultivated with dedication on a family owned farm in Nonsan, Korea. The family’s over 20 years commitment to excellence extends to every stage of the production process, with stringent quality management systems in place to ensure cleanliness, freshness, and safety. Unlike mass-produced alternatives, Kevin's Choice perilla powder is free from benzopyrene, pesticide residues, and chemical additives, making it a wholesome and health-conscious choice for discerning consumers.
