ORGANIC MISO, Traditional Red
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Ingredients: Organic whole soybeans, organic rice koji (organic rice koji spores, sea salt, water). See nutrition facts below (disregard number of servings per container)
Production: This miso is aged naturally without temperature control for 12 months in four-ton, hand-crafted Cypress, Redwood, or Fir barrels. The high soybean content in relation to the rice koji (grain inoculated with aspergillus spores) makes it necessary to age this variety through four full seasons because soybeans are more difficult to ferment, with their high protein and fat content, than the high-carbohydrate grains. This gives the aspergillus spores and lactobacillus bacteria sufficient time to completely break down the complex protein and fat molecules into their more digestible constituents.
Qualities: Miso has been a staple ingredient in the Japanese diet for thousands of years. Miso is a healthy, fermented source of soy 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.
Common Use: Red miso has a deep umami flavor that can overwhelm mild dishes but is wonderful for soups, braises, sauces, marinades and glazes. 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.

Tasty miso rice
Looking to up my rice game, I used the red miso to flavor the water when making brown rice in my Instant Pot. I make a lot of "bowls" with leftovers and wanted a new note to the rice. This worked very well. I can't wait to try making actual miso soup or miso glazed salmon.
Delicious & mild
What I like the most is that the ingredients are super clean. Other brands have fructose corn syrup. That doesn’t make sense. I use it to make dressing for my salads and of course in soup also. I ordered in winter. I ordered the small size. The miso was not packaged in any special temperature controlling cooling container. It was placed in a normal shipping box along with my other items. The miso container is plastic, not glass as pictured, FYI. All the ones I’ve tried in the past were in plastic also. It arrived fine. No spoiling nor breakage. It’s in the fridge now. No harm done. I will order again. I’m happy with my purchase.
