Aojiru is a health drink originally made from squeezed green leafed vegetables.
The vegetables mainly used for aojiru are kale, young barley grass, Komatsuna, and green tea leaves. The origin of aojiru is not certain but it is said that in 1943, a doctor started prescribing aojiru, a squeezed kale juice, as a nutritional supplement to his patients. In 1969, aojiru made from a young barley grass was first introduced in Japan. 28 years later in 1997, we launched a further developed young barley grass aojiru called Ryokko Aojiru. Since then, more than 1.7 million people have been enjoying our product.
