Miso (pronounced mee-so) is a delicious all purpose, high-protein seasoning which has played a major role in Japanese culture and cuisine for centuries. It is most often made from a combination of soybeans, cultured grain, and sea salt by a unique, double fermentation process, which was elevated to a state of fine craftsmanship in traditional Japan.
Miso is best known as a seasoning for soup. It is used for flavoring a wide variety of other dishes as well (see recipes). Miso offers a nutritious balance of natural carbohydrates, essential oils, minerals, vitamins, and protein of the highest quality, containing all of the essential amino acids.
Sweet, savory, and highly versatile, this caramel colored miso works well in light soups, salad dressings, and marinades. A natural foods restaurant in our area has been using Sweet Tasting Brown Rice in their popular Honey Miso salad dressing for over twenty years.
