Twice the koji for full flavour and nutrition.

For a miso paste that is both as sweet and hearty in flavour as they come and incredibly good for you, Marukome's fresh koji miso is a perfect match. This additive free miso is made up of 24% fresh koji (twice the amount of standard miso pastes), giving the miso a unique sweetness and deep umami quality. The extra koji content has the additional benefit of aiding digestion. Use this miso for soups or as a flavour-enhancing, odour-eliminating seasoning.

Background

Miso paste is a staple Japanese cooking ingredient made by fermenting soy beans, and occasionally other ingredients such as barley or rice, with koji (an edible mould that is cultivated on rice and other starches). Miso can vary in flavour and texture from sweet and smooth to savoury and course, depending on the ingredients used and fermentation time. If you are looking to explore the wide world of miso, Japan Centre's Miso section is a good place to start.
