The Local Hashima Story
During ancient times in China, Hashima was harvested from the Changbai Mountain wood frog undergoing winter hibernation and was regularly served to the Chinese emperors for its purported health benefits.
Today we can enjoy locally-produced, handpicked and carefully dried Hashima of the highest quality. Jurong Frog Farm (JFF) is the first and only producer of Hashima in Singapore to date.
Our Hashima is harvested from the locally-grown American bullfrogs and cleaned thoroughly before undergoing a bespoke dehydration process to lock in nutrients. Through this process, the rich collagen and amino acid content is preserved, ensuring that you receive the maximum benefit.
Launched in 1999, years of research and development went into this process beforehand to ensure repeatable and safe results all achieved without the use of preservatives. This production process enables maximum absorbency delivering you higher value.
This popular beauty-enhancing ingredient is also now available in a naturally hydrated form – look out for JFF Premium Bottled Hashima with America Ginseng at all leading Chinese medicinal halls and supermarkets. This offers you the convenience of enhancing beauty and health in a bottle.
Research has been performed to show that Hashima when consumed regularly induces the production of elastin, collagen and fibrilin which may have beneficial anti-aging effects.
JFF Hashima is guaranteed of its cleanliness. This leaves you with only 3 steps – Soak, Cook, Serve!
