Ultimate Saikyo Miso, 23% Koji Rice, 500g

Saikuo Kyono Hana

究極の西京味噌 麹米23% 500g

Ultimate Saikyo Miso is a premium version of Saikyo miso, a traditional Japanese fermented soybean paste that is known for its mild and sweet flavour. Saikyo miso is made using a special production method that involves a longer fermentation time and a higher percentage of rice koji compared to other types of miso.

It is made using only the highest quality ingredients, including locally sourced soybeans, rice koji, and sea salt. The fermentation process is carefully controlled to ensure a consistent, high-quality product.

The resulting miso has a delicate, sweet flavour with a subtle umami undertone. It is lighter in colour and milder in taste compared to other types of miso, making it a popular choice for marinating fish and other delicate proteins. It is also a popular ingredient in sauces, dressings, and soups.

Keep out of direct sunlight and keep at room temperature.
