Vana (C-Grade) is uni that doesn’t fall into a Gold or Premium category. It is dark yellow or orange, or may even appear brown in color. Uni pieces may be intact but are mostly broken. Vana offers a slightly bitter, almost nutty flavor and ultra-soft consistency. For this reason, it is not recommended for sushi presentations. Vana may still be enjoyed raw, but because of its melty texture it is often used in pastas, soups, and sauces as a thickener and to create desirable umami flavor. Please note that we are now selling this item frozen in block form rather than in a plastic tub. Once defrosted, transfer to a sealable container.
