White Miso is considered a short-term miso, which contains more of the rice koji (inoculated with aspergillus spores) than soybeans in their ingredient mix because they are designed to ferment quickly, as the aspergillus moves quickly through the abundant starches in the rice, transforming them into simple sugars. These misos also have much less salt in their ingredient mix than the long-term misos, which allows the fermentation process to happen faster. Because of its increased availability of starches, decreased protein and fat content, and lower salt proportion, Na'vi Organics' White Miso has a much sweeter, milder taste than our long-fermented misos. This distinctive, delicious salty-sweet taste is perfect for light summery miso soups and sauces. This short term miso delivers a unique flavour profile that tastes fantastic on its own as a hot drink enhances Japanese dishes, and many other styles of cuisine as well. Rich in the beneficial enzymes and lactobacillus that is produced during the fermentation process, packed in amber dark glass jars to protect these precious properties from light degradation, these are genuine misos of the highest quality. The producers of this miso are true artisans with a deep conviction and the most noble of intentions, devoted to creating and producing living foods, certified organic, that provide a vast array of exceptional functional properties. Ingredients are selected with the utmost of with care, using only the highest quality organic products.
