Aomori PG (Aomori proteoglycan) is made from the nose cartilages of
salmon. Only the alcohol and food-grade acetic acid are used to extract
proteoglycan. Even though proteoglycan itself has garnered much attention
since the '70s, extracting proteoglycan from the nose cartilages of salmon had been
quite difficult and costly - to the tune of 30,000,000 yen per 1 g - which
had also made proteoglycan such rare and valuable ingredient.
However, inspired by the cooking process of Aomori's traditional dish
called "Hizunamasu", which is sliced and pickled salmon head cartilage,
researchers succeeded in developing a technique to extract proteoglycan
using acetic acid.
As a result, extracting proteoglycan became much easier and simpler,
reducing the cost to 1/1,000 of what it used to be.
It also led to the incorporation of proteoglycan into daily items such as
cosmetic products and food, making proteoglycan a lot more affordable and
