What is Nuka?
Nuka, also known as rice bran, is the hard outer skin of the rice grains that is removed when polishing brown rice to make white rice. It is gluten-free unlike the traditional wheat bran and contains a high nutritional value and typically used in Japanese cooking to make dishes such as fermented pickles called nukazuke.
Nukazuke are a type of Japanese pickle made by fermenting vegetables in Nuka. Almost any edible vegetable may be pickled using this rice bran such as eggplant, daikon, cabbage, and cucumber. Many Japanese households have their own nukazuke crocks, which are basically like beds that contain the Nuka bran so you can start the fermentation process.
