White Miso Paste

Traditionally associated with Japanese food, white miso paste is much more than an ingredient for a flavorful soup. Miso is made from soybeans, rice, salt and water, fermented with Aspergillusoryzae (a culture also used for sake and soy sauce). Nutrition-packed, white miso paste is a great source of high-quality protein, making it ideal for those who don’t eat a lot of meat.

The flavor of this Hikari miso paste is salty but mild, so you’ll never end up with overly salty dishes. Mix it with dashi for the traditional soup, or get creative and create marinades for steak and fish, flavorful sauces, and even spread it on a sandwich. Salty Hikari miso paste is deliciously versatile.

Cooking tip: boiling will curdle the miso, so always add this to the end of the prepration.
Seasoned with Bonito tuna for extra flavor. Hikari Miso uses non-genetically modified soybeans only to make their products.

Ingredients: soybean paste (water, soybeans, rice, salt), water, alcohol, seasoned bonito extract (bonito extract, salt, kelp extract, alcohol), monosodium glutamate, salt, disodium inosinate, disodium guanylate, dried frigate mackerel powder.
Availability: Usually ships within 1 business days. Product is non-perishable and can ship via Ground service.
