ORGANIC MISO, Chickpea (soy free)
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Ingredients: chickpeas, rice koji, sun-dried sea salt, mountain well water, koji spores. See nutrition facts below (disregard number of servings per container)
Production: This short-term aged, soy-free miso uses garbanzo beans (chickpeas) instead of soybeans as its base. It has less salt and more rice koji (rice inoculated with Aspergillus spores) than traditional misos. Reducing the salt speeds up fermentation, while increasing the grain content makes more starch available to turn to sugar, producing a milder miso.
Qualities: This miso is soy-free so that the benefits of eating miso can be enjoyed by anyone, even those with soy allergies. Miso has been a staple ingredient in the Japanese diet for thousands of years and is a healthy, fermented food that provides a large set of available nutrients. Due to the fermentation, it is filled with beneficial, live probiotic cultures that support and balance gut bacteria.
Short-term aged misos also have their own distinctive health benefits. Perhaps because the aging time of chickpea miso is so short, typically 30-60 days, the abundant food supply of starches is not exhausted by the time the miso is packed and refrigerated.
Common Use: This chickpea miso delivers a unique flavor profile that enhances not just Japanese dishes, but many other cuisines as well. This mild salty-sweet taste is perfect for dips, spreads, salad dressings, sauces, and summer soups. Avoid boiling of miso in order to preserve the probiotic cultures.
Storage: This product is unpasteurized and should be refrigerated. Refrigerated shelf life is up to 18 months.

Food delicious... comes with too much plastic
I've enjoyed all of the food products...most of them were dried goods...all seem fresh and delicious. My only complaint is all of the plastic. It would be so awesome if as a client could choose the packaging. I'm going to put what ever I've ordered into a glass jar so why can't I get it in a cotton or linen bag. I would pay extra if necessary.
First time Buyer
My experience with Essential organics was great. I live on the East Coast and the shipment comes from West Coast. I found them responsive to my questions. When an item was not available that I ordered, they didn't charge me additional shipping on that order. When the item became available a week later, they worked with me to get the order. The shipment arrived well packed and stable. I do wish it had been packed with a cooler pack however. The product is fermented so it should be okay but that is the only item to be aware of if buying cooler items and there is a large shipping distance.
