    What is miso?

    Miso is a traditional Japanese ingredient made by fermenting soybeans with salt and a specific mould called koji. It results in a thick, flavourful paste with a range of savoury and umami elements. Miso is used in various dishes and can be transformed into a versatile sauce or incorporated as a paste for added depth of flavour.

    What form does miso come in?

    Miso most commonly comes as a paste or a sauce. There are a variety of miso pastes available and these are commonly used in soups like miso soup, marinades for meats and vegetables, or as a base for glazes and dressings.

    Miso sauce combines miso paste with other ingredients such as soy sauce, vinegar, sweeteners and spices to create a flavourful accompaniment. Miso sauce adds a rich umami taste to dishes like stir-fries, grilled meats, and roasted vegetables. It can also be used as a dipping sauce.
