Koji is an essential ingredient you will need to make your own amazake or rice milk. Koji is steamed polished rice inoculated with the Aspergillus oryzae mold. It is responsible for the fermentation process of not only amazake and rice milk, but also miso and a number of other fermented foods such as sake, mirin, 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!
