For adding spicy, umami flavour.

Give your cooking an extra kick of savoury fire with Clearspring's organic Japanese umami paste with chilli. This paste combines organic soy sauce and fiery chilli with rice koji; a type of rice mould that, as well as being the main fermenting agent for soy sauce, miso and sake, is also able to convert tough proteins into amino acids, making savoury foods both more savoury and more tender. Add this paste to sauces, stews, and dressings, or enjoy as a savoury dip.

ITEM ID: #11434

Background

Koji, otherwise known as 'rice malt' or 'rice mould', is a special kind of edible fungus that grows on rice. Koji is full of enzymes and used primarily as a fermenting agent in soy sauce, miso, sake, and other Japanese foods and beverages. However, koji can also be used as a seasoning in its own right, as the enzymes in it break down complex proteins and starches into amino acids and glucose, as well as tenderise food, eliminate odours, and aid in digestion.
