Hikari's 'maru-yu' organic miso is their top-shelf premium quality miso. Non-GMO, organic soybeans are fermented extra long (minimum 6 months) to derive this divine naturally umami depth of flavor, filled with lots of probiotics too! It is this fermentation process that makes the soybeans easily digestible and significantly lowers the amount of "anti-nutrients" such as phytic acid (decreases the absorption of iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium), and phytoestrogen (disrupts the body's hormonal balance). Dashi miso is perfect for making a cup (or pot) of miso soup without spending the time pre-making dashi base. It is also a wonderful marinate to your favorite fish. Ingredients Organic soybean, water, alcohol, salt, yeast extract, dried fish powder, kelp powder, mackerel powder, anchovies powder.
