Our best-selling white miso.

Bring a subtle savoury flavour to your dishes with this mild white miso paste. Made by fermenting soy beans and rice, this miso is golden yellow in colour and has a mellow and slightly sweeter flavour than other miso varieties. Use to make hearty miso soup, or as a seasoning in stir fries, sauces, and marinades.

ITEM ID: #1264

Background

Miso paste is a staple Japanese cooking ingredient made by fermenting soy beans, and sometimes barley and/or rice, with koji (an edible fungus that grows on rice and is also known as 'rice malt' or 'rice mould'). White miso is made from soy beans and a high percentage of rice which are fermented to create a light, slightly sweet taste. If you are looking to explore the wide world of miso, Japan Centre's Miso section is a good place to start.

Love the miso - English recipe miso's just don't have the same flavour! I use it as a miso soup but my daughter uses it to flavour her ramen noodles. I would definitely recommend this for a taste of authentic Japan!

I use this to make soups but also to flavour things like home-made hummous or sauces. The quality of the product is excellent
