Our miso is full of peptides and amino acids formed during fermentation – bringing you umami, nutrition, and a probiotic boost for gut health to your food. Some say it makes all vegetables taste better.
Defined as “Fifth Taste” meaning savory as the Japanese word “umami”, following sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness. Amino acids, including glutamic acid, provide savory umami. Umami has savory taste characteristics of foods like broth and cooked meats. Miso, as a fermented food, is often used as a base for vegetarian dishes in Japan.
