To make miso you’ll need koji. Koji is steamed polished rice inoculated with the Aspergillus oryzae culture. It is responsible for the fermentation process of not only amazake, but also miso and a number of other fermented foods such as sake, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Its function is to convert starch, protein, and fats to their simpler easier to digest compounds (sugars, amino acids, fatty acids and glycerol), transforming the original food into a new food and releasing beneficial nutrients in the process. Nature at work! A “How to make miso” flyer is included. Also check out our Rhapsody Blog for information on how to make miso using our koji here.
