Umami / Sweetness / Tenderising. This pre-made shio koji is a natural MSG. The Koji inside attaches to any protein or starch you add it to. The Koji then breaks these down into amino acids and complex sugar molecules. This process tenderises meat or fish, boosts umami and brings out sweetness naturally. This is a game changer for western cooking.
As it's all-natural, you get the same umami taste as you would while using MSG but without the additives.
