Amazake is a sweet sake without alcohol. It is known as non-alcoholic sake because the process is very similar to sake making. The main difference is that when the rice has been fermented in natural sugars, thanks to koj, the fermentation is stopped so that there is no alcohol produce.
The amazake can be enjoyed as a drink or as a cream. It has a similar appearance to yogurt and because is fermented it has numerous derived benefits. That is why it is the main dessert of macrobiotic diets, where in addition to using it as a dessert they also use it as a substitute for sugar, as it is a natural sweetener, easy to digest and nutritious, which makes it very beneficial for health. It is also used as a substitute for milk as it provides lactose-free creaminess
