What's beneficial about Miso?
To a certain extent, you may think that miso is a food that has been 'pre-digested'. This is because the fungus Aspergillus and other microorganisms used in the fermentation process help metabolise proteins, carbohydrates and fats in chickpeas and transform them into smaller molecules that can be more easily absorbed and digested. Also, sometimes you can also find Lactobacillus (a lactic acid bacteria) which is essential in maintaining the normal flora in your gut and prevent intestinal infection.
What's more, miso is known to contain phytonutrient antioxidants and it is also found to be related to the fermentation process. Some studies discovered that when the fermentation is longer, the level of certain antioxidants also rises. Since our miso is not made with soy, so you can make the soup and consume it in a carefree way - it will not induce food allergy. Now, try to make a coconut curry miso bomb! ;)
