Organic miso paste is made from a blend of cooked soybeans and grains of usually rice or barley, mixed with salt and a fungus called Aspergillus oryzae, or koji. This left to ferment in pots from a few weeks to over a year. Depending on the type of grains and how long it’s left to age, misos can range from light to dark, along with their flavour profile.
The Japanese are well known for their longevity which has been largely attributed to their eating habits. Miso has shown in some cases as a suppressing effect against cancer and in eliminating radioactive substances in our body. Miso also helps to lower cholesterol levels, prevents skin ageing and maintains nutritional balance.
