ABOUT MISO

Miso, fermented soybean paste, is made from soybeans, rice or barley, sea salt, and koji (fermentation starter). The majority of miso marketed in America is kome miso, made from a combination of soybeans and rice. The different colors of miso types are indicative of the different ratios of soybeans and rice used to make the miso and the length of the fermentation period.

WHAT IS AKA MISO?

Aka miso is made from about 70% soybean and 30% rice or barley. The long fermentation period, about one to one and one half years, produces darker colored, strong and salty miso. Aka miso contains about 13% salt by volume, or about half teaspoon salt per tablespoon of miso.

WHAT IS SHIRO MISO?

Shiro miso presents a yellowish beige color. The fermentation period is shorter than for Aka miso. Shiro miso is slightly less salty and less robust in flavor than Aka miso..

WHAT IS SAIKYO SHIRO MISO?

Saikyo shiro miso is made with more rice and less soybeans with a short fermentation period. Saikyo shiro miso has a pale yellow color and distinctive sweet flavor. The salt content of this miso is about five to ten percent. Because of its mild flavor and less saltiness, Saikyo shiro miso is a favorite miso used to marinate fish and vegetables.

WHAT IS HATCHO MISO?

Hatcho miso is made from almost 100% soybeans. A long fermentation time of about two years produces a dark brown (chocolate-like), firm textured miso. Hatcho miso has a distinctive soybean flavor and slight sweet aroma.

WHAT IS BLENDED MISO?

This type of miso is a blend of aka miso and shiro miso. Blending the two types produces milder and more complex flavor in this miso.

WHAT IS KOJI MISO?

Koji miso is made using large quantities of koji (fermentation starter) inoculated rice, producing miso with rich taste and noticeable sweetness.

WHAT IS GEN'MAI MISO?

Gen'mai miso is made from brown rice and soybeans, resulting in miso with a rich and robust flavor.

WHAT IS KYOZAKURA MISO?

Kyozakura miso is a high quality red miso used by professional chefs in Japan. The miso has the flavor of blended aka miso and hatcho miso. Kyozakura miso has a dark brown color, moist texture and rich and round flavor.

WHAT IS KINZANJI MISO (#20066)?

This unique miso is made by fermenting vegetables such as eggplant and lotus root along with soybeans with koji (fermentation starter) inoculated wheat and salt. Kinzanji miso is used as condiment.

WHAT IS HISHIO MISO (moromi miso #20195)?

Hishio miso, also called moromi miso, is a popular miso condiment served with fresh raw vegetables such as crisp baby cucumber, plain table rice or prepared dishes. Hishio miso is made from barley, soybean, salt, and millet syrup. It is a pleasantly mellow, sweet and delicious miso with chunky texture.
