The name “budou-buta” or “grape pork” comes from the grape husks that are regularly added to the pig feed. These husks come from the grapes used to make “Aya Wine,” which is popular throughout Japan. They are rich in Vitamin E, which has revitalization properties and create an even higher quality meat. The polyphenol which is found in these grapes, has anti-bacterial properties which helps to keep the pigs healthy and maintain their low stress levels. The meat of “budou-buta” has a faintly sweet taste with no odor and smooth fat.
