As Binchotan is a natural product, the weight may vary by a few grams. Due to the natural origin of the product and the density of the wood, the  shape and stick length may vary (sticks or sections).



All our Binchotan are labeled by the Wakayama Prefecture in Japan and they all bear the yellow certification sticker, as a sign of their authenticity.


Beware of counterfeits, 90% of the Japanese Binchotan coals from Kishu sold in France are actually from China, Indonesia or Laos.


If they do not carry the approval (yellow dot), you are probably dealing with coals produced outside of Japan and activated with chemical solvents.  Always demand the certification label with your Kishu Binchotan coals.

    Each month, all you need to do is purify your coal  by boiling it again in a pot of water for 15 minutes.


    Beyond 6 months, the carbon being saturated, it will be necessary to change it.


    It is recommended not to leave a charcoal in the same water for more than 48 hours. If this is the case, all you have to do is empty the water and let the charcoal act again for  8 h.
