I've searched through many a local supermarket in many a Chinatown, and this is the dashi that I default to. If you look at the ingredients, you'll see that the first ingredient is bonito flakes and the second is mackerel flakes. Salt and MSG aren't even on the list. What you get is a real fish based dashi flavor instead of the salty liquid that you get with just about every other product. This lacks all of the salt and MSG that you may be used to, so be prepared for a more delicate, subtle flavor. This is what you use when you want real flavor.
The packages come in individual packets made of what appears to be cheesecloth. It's not a powder or a mix. It's actual fish flakes. The whole packet looks quite a bit like a giant teabag.
Why did I drop a star? It is rather pricy, but you get what you pay for. This price is very similar to what you'd find in a real Asian supermarket. Also, it's tough to buy 50 packages of dashi unless you use it quite often...
It's tough to find great tasting dashi without MSG. This has the perfect mix of smokey, salty, and fishy flavors that are a must for the best miso soup and other dishes. Bonus - the price is right.
Very good. A little lighter in taste than few other dashi I have bought in the past but the flavor is pleasant and I enjoy the miso soup I make with it.
