Be careful with Konnyaku jelly

Konnyaku jelly is more elastic than jelly without Konnyaku. He cautioned that there is a risk of accidents for children and the elderly who have weak chewing ability. The industry has also dealt with such things as reducing the usage rate of Konnyaku powder and displaying warning signs to encourage children and the elderly not to eat. Since many minicup jellies are "lacking safety", they decided to create indicators such as shape and hardness to reduce risk, and suggested the possibility of legislation.

Overseas, measures such as a ban on importing mini cup type Konnyaku jelly (US) and a ban on using Konnyaku for mini cup jelly (EU, South Korea) have been taken.


Konnyaku jelly, which is hard and has high elasticity, does not collapse naturally in the mouth, so it is important to chew it well before eating. Basically, it is better not to give to infants who can not crush and chew well yet. Whenever a child or older person after the age of 3 eats Konnyaku jelly, be sure to watch over someone's side.


Children and the elderly shouldn't eat, they should be eaten with care and always watch over. Whenever a child eats Konnyaku jelly, I always watch over it. It's softer than the Konnyaku jelly sold before, so I think it's easier to eat.
