As well as health benefits, more and more home makers, chefs, and even manufacturers are recognizing the incredibly wide range of applications for the rich, robust flavor of miso. Miso has been eaten in Asian countries for centuries and has a plethora of health and anti-aging benefits. In addition, it has a delicious mild flavor and is a perfect soothing option when you are under the weather.

It was once thought that soy was the reason for the low rates of heart disease, breast and prostate cancer in Asia, more evidence shows that it’s the consumption of traditional fermented soy products that are providing the benefits.

Creating miso is an art form in Japan. It prepared from soybeans and koji, a culture starter  made from beneficial molds, yeast and lactic acid bacteria. Choose unpasteurized miso, to reap the benefits from the live friendly microflora.
