IMPORTANT NOTICE: Clearspring guarantees to deliver the best quality organic miso from Japan. Miso is an authentic vegan fermented food which has been produced in Japan since the 8th century, over 1,000 tons being consumed there daily in many dishes and soups.

Due to the high demand for Clearspring miso, we contract produce organic miso at several manufacturers in different regions in Japan. All our miso is made to traditional recipes with the best possible organic ingredients but since miso is a live product the taste, colour and consistency will vary slightly depending on the region and the season. The lighter coloured miso often comes from the southern region, where due to the warmer climate the required maturity time is shorter than in the northern region which typically make darker miso.

Occasionally however the miso may continue to naturally ferment in the jar and as a result the colour of the miso will gradually darken over time. This continuing maturation may also cause the lid to bulge but rest assured that the product is still delicious and safe to consume. To slow down this fermentation, simply keep the product refrigerated.

This robust miso, Genmai Miso in Japanese, has been developed for maximum nutrition. Since it is made using whole soya beans and brown rice, it has a very wholefood nutritional profile.

Depending on the region and climate where the miso is made, the skill and experience of the brewmaster judges when the miso has reached its optimum maturity. This can vary from 6 months during a hot summer period in certain prefecture to 18 months in colder regions.

Enjoy this hearty miso year-round in sauces, spreads, baked dishes, soups and stews.

What is miso?

Barley Miso ProductionMiso is a traditional fermented Japanese staple food and seasoning made from different types of grains but mainly soya and a unique koji fermentation culture.

How should miso be stored?

Generally, the best way to store miso to maintain its freshness and quality is in a cool cupboard or refrigerator. However, it really depends on climatic conditions and personal preference. High temperatures will encourage further fermentation, which although not harmful, will darken the colour and alter the flavour of the miso as well as possibly leading to a build-up of pressure within the packaging.

How salty is miso?

Salt plays an integral part in many fermented and pickled foods. It acts as a check to the fermentation process, creating foods with optimum nutrition but preventing them from spoiling. Miso contains enough salt to successfully control the fermentation, with the actual amount varying from 5% for lighter varieties up to 12% for stronger, darker varieties. Miso is a concentrated seasoning with considerable flavouring ability, so there is no need to use a lot of it. When substituting miso for salt, add approximately one to two teaspoons of miso for one quarter of a teaspoon of salt. This way salt intake can be lowered and full benefit gained from the flavour and nutrition of miso.
