Hanamaruki Liquid Shio Koji 10L
ハナマルキ 液体塩こうじ グルテンフリー10l

Ideal for stocks and marinating meats and vegetables. Koji is one of the best-kept secrets in Japanese cooking. It increases 'umami' levels in most things and its special enzymes break down the proteins in meats and fish to make it much more tender. Try it, you'll never go back.

Why use Koji?

1. Koji can remove typical strong smells of meat and makes it soft and tender.
The enzyme within koji softens meat and brings out its flavour.

2. Brings out the flavour of many foods.
By adding just a little shio koji causes the amino acid within it to breakdown proteins, providing in a fully-flavoured finish.

3. A natural seasoning.
Shio koji is made from fermented kome (rice) koji, salt and water, creating a simple and natural condiment. 

4. A highly versatile liquid
The Hanamaruki brand manufactures shio koji in liquid form, allowing it to easily be used just like soy sauce, mirin or sake.
