Positive values mean drier sake, negative values suggest sweetness, and values near zero indicate a balanced profile. It helps consumers choose sake based on their taste preferences, with dry sake pairing well with savory dishes and sweet sake complementing desserts.
※Acidity・・・The “acidity” of Japanese sake is a measure of its sourness, with higher values indicating more acidity and lower values suggesting a milder taste. Moderate acidity contributes to a refreshing quality that pairs well with food. Typically ranging from 0.7% to 2%, acidity varies based on production methods and ingredients.
