Miso

Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning and health food that has been an integral ingredient in authentic Japanese cooking for many centuries. This thick, savory fermented soybean paste is high in protein, rich in umami, and incredibly versatile.

Miso exemplifies the many health benefits of fermented foods, being rich with enzymes, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, and essential amino acids. It is also claimed to have wide-ranging healing properties. The long fermentation used in traditional miso making does not only serve to develop the aroma, flavor, and color of miso, but also imparts miso with its high nutritional value. Miso is known to contain active enzymes, which aid digestion and support immune system health. Unpasteurized miso is thought to contain more of these beneficial enzymes than pasteurized miso. Mitoku’s miso range is organic and free from GMO and chemical additives.

At Mitoku, we have an extensive selection including Hatcho miso, which is aged for over two years and still made according to a method almost unchanged since the fifteenth century. Also available are brown rice miso, barley miso, sweet white miso, instant miso soups and freeze-dried miso powder.
