The Starch Syrup Daikon (水飴ダイコン(みずあめダイコン), Mizuame Daikon) is a breed of common daikon with the taste of starch syrup. Prior to the fall of Meteor Spice which devastated the natural resources of the Human World, the Starch Syrup Daikon was a very common ingredient of little worth, but once the Meteor Spice fell and the global food shortage began, the Starch Syrup Daikon, as well as any fresh ingredient ended up having their prices raised 100 times what they were worth and stores were forced to keep any fresh ingredients in reinforced glass cases. To avoid starvation, Food Tablets were used as substitutes for real food until the food shortage could be resolved.
Billion Bird ArcEditA single Starch Syrup Daikon was available for sale at a small Food Tablet shop, however its owner took pity on a young boy named Suguru who frequented her store and freely gave him her last Starch Syrup Daikon so he could feed his mother. However the daikon was sadly stolen from him by two corrupted Gourmet Security Guards who had been driven mad from hunger and proceeded to beat the boy down for the daikon. Just then, a giant Starch Syrup Daikon fell from the sky and landed next to Suguru, having been a gift from the returning Toriko. A large piece of meat also fell on the two guards, forcing them to let go of the daikon.
