With varieties ranging from dark and robust to mild and sweet, miso is one of Japan’s most versatile foods. Despite its long history, there are still many new forms and new uses for miso waiting to be discovered. While respecting tradition, Mitoku seeks to innovate and adapt to changing times, and this is reflected in such products as our salt-reduced miso and organic spicy miso.
Organic Miso Powder
Mitoku’s miso powder is an innovative form of miso. First, carefully selected organic ingredients are transformed into miso paste using traditional methods. This paste is then freeze-dried without any additives in order to preserve all its goodness.
The resulting powder dissolves easily and will enhance the umami of stews, salads or sautéed dishes. Its salty taste can even intensify the sweetness of desserts like ice cream or chocolate brownies. Simply sprinkle to taste on your favorite dishes. Mitoku’s miso powder is available in three distinctive flavors: full-bodied brown rice miso, sweet white miso and traditional Hatcho miso, fermented naturally for two summers and two winters.
Organic Salt Reduced Rice Miso – Unpasteurised
Reducing salt intake in our diet is thought to be one way to avoid lifestyle-related diseases. Now Mitoku offers an organic low sodium choice for miso. This unpasteurized miso contains about 25% less salt than our standard miso without compromising flavor. It has a rounded and satisfying taste similar to our brown rice miso.
Organic Yuzu Miso
Yuzu miso is a variety of traditional miso that is integral to Shojin Ryori (Buddhist vegetarian cuisine). Mitoku’s yuzu miso is produced with great care, so as not to loose the rich yet delicate flavor and aroma of yuzu. Yuzu is combined with mellow white miso to create a gentle miso with depth and complex sweetness.
This elegant and distinctive miso will uplift any dish. Enjoy with no further preparation, as a topping for vegetables, or a dip or sauce for grilled and deep-fried dishes. Alternatively, mix with vinegar or oil for a refreshing dressing.
Organic Spicy Miso
We are extending our miso range by adding convenient sauces with great flavors. This deliciously hot and satisfying sauce is prepared by combining Mitoku’s full-bodied and wholesome blend of brown rice miso with the comforting piquancy of chili.
This all-purpose miso sauce is so versatile you can use it to extend your repertoire of hot and cold dishes alike. As a handy ready-made sauce, you can add an exciting flavor dimension simply by using it to dress grilled or roasted vegetables, pouring it over stir-fried dishes, using it as a marinade base, or enjoying it as a vegetable dip or hearty dressing!
