Marukome Shio Koji 500g

As seen on: James Martin's Saturday Morning.

Shio koji is a natural seasoning used to marinate, tenderise, and enhance the umami, or richness (one of the five basic tastes), in foods. It's made of just a few simple ingredients, salt, water and rice koji. As it's all-natural, you get the same umami taste as you would while using MSG but without the additives.

Shio koji is a traditional Japanese ingredient that is made by fermenting rice malt, salt, and water. It is often used in Japanese cooking as a seasoning or marinade to enhance the umami flavour of foods.

It is rich in enzymes that help to break down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, making it an excellent natural flavour enhancer.
