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 also seeks to innovate and adapt to changing times, and this is reflected in products such as our salt-reduced miso and organic spicy miso.
Organic Umami Powder
Mitoku’s Organic Umami Powder is an innovative new 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 – without the use of MSG. Its salty taste can even intensify the sweetness of desserts like ice cream or chocolate brownies. Simply sprinkle to taste on your favorite dishes. Available in five varieties: Barley Miso, Brown Rice Miso Red, Brown Rice Miso White, Brown Rice Miso Red With Wasabi, and Brown Rice Miso White With Wasabi.
Organic Salt Reduced Rice Miso – Unpasteurised
Reducing salt intake in our diet is thought to be one way to avoid lifestyle related diseases. For this reason, Mitoku now offers a reduced sodium option for organic miso. This unpasteurized miso contains at least 25% less salt than our standard miso without compromising on taste. It has a rounded and satisfying flavor similar to our brown rice miso.
Organic Yuzu Miso
A traditional miso variety that is integral to Buddhist vegetarian cuisine, yuzu miso is made by combining the finest quality yuzu – a fragrant Japanese citrus fruit – with mellow white miso to create a miso with depth and complex sweetness. The miso must be produced with great care, so as not to lose the rich yet delicate flavor and aroma of yuzu.
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
Organic Spicy Miso is a hot and satisfying sauce prepared by combining Mitoku’s wholesome miso with the comforting piquancy of chili. As a handy ready-made sauce, use it to add an exciting flavor dimension to grilled or roasted vegetables, pour over stir-fried dishes, or use as a marinade base, vegetable dip, or hearty dressing! A soybean-free variety is also available.
