MAKANAI Miso Soup™

This is the ultimate clean label instant miso soup, made of miso, dried bonito flakes and cut garnish without any chemical seasonings such as MSG. To develop the product, we interviewed miso craftsmen and people at HIKARI MISO who are familiar with miso soup. According to them, the easiest way to make delicious miso soup is to “add miso, dried bonito flakes and roughly cut garnish in a bowl and then simply add hot water.”

In order to realize the best miso soup, we carefully chose rich miso aged in a storehouse. We also included an individual packet of dried bonito flakes. By sprinkling it on the soup just before eating, the aroma and deep taste of freshly shaved dried bonito will enhance the miso soup making it even more delicious. Since the launch of the first two products under MAKANAI Miso Soup in 2021, the sales of the range has been very strong. To supplement the brand, HIKARI MISO is now launching the third one Kuradashi Kanjuku Shiro-tsubumiso.
