Edamame beans are blanched soybeans that have been harvested unripe. The prepared beans, i.e. picked from the pod, are efficiently chopped with the KUJ V cube, strip and slice cutting machine, using the 5 x 5 x 5 mm cube set. The result is a chunky product that, despite the soft consistency of the beans, does not turn into a pulp because the beans are not squashed during the cutting process. The shredded Edamame beans can then be used, for example, as a filling for sushi or in salads.
