What is miso?

Barley Miso Production

 

Miso is a staple, traditional fermented Japanese ingredient and seasoning made from different types of grains. Mainly made of soya, it works with a unique koji fermentation culture.

During the 18 years, Clearspring's founder Christopher Dawson lived in Japan where he became an expert on miso quality. The Clearspring range is his selection of the finest traditionally made Japanese miso. All traditionally fermented Japanese miso is prepared by cooking the finest organically grown ingredients (whole soya beans and cereal grains) and combining them with a koji culture (grains or soya beans inoculated with Aspergillus oryzae mould spores), sea salt and water. Naturally aged in cedarwood kegs over many months at ambient temperature the enzymes from the koji, along with naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria, gradually break down the complex grains and beans into readily digestible amino acids, fatty acids and simple sugars. The resulting miso has rich and complex flavours and an abundance of umami, the fifth taste.

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.

 

Are Clearspring soya foods non GM?

Organic certification does not allow genetic modification, so all Clearspring organic foods are therefore certified non GM. Clearspring is careful to only trade products where there is a declaration from the supplier that all the ingredients are non GM.

 

What are the different varieties of miso?

Like with French wine or Belgian beers, miso comes in numerous varieties, each with its own unique taste, colour and texture.  These reflect the local culture, crops and growing conditions of different regions of Japan. While sweet miso has lower soya content, reduced salt and more koji flavours are popular in the south of Japan.  Darker miso, often called "aka" or red miso, contains more soya and less koji, and traditionally comes from the northern part of Japan. The Clearspring range includes the best of each type of miso, both dark and light, as well as pure soya bean and grain based varieties.

 

Should miso be cooked?

Unpasteurised miso contains an abundance of live enzymes that can be destroyed through prolonged cooking. However the nutritional properties, as well as the flavour of miso are left unaltered by cooking, and some recipes suggest cooking miso to develop the flavour of other ingredients in the dish.

To maximise the enzymatic benefits of miso, choose an unpasteurised variety (or freeze-dried miso soup) and select recipes where miso is added towards the end of the cooking process.

 

What kind of dishes can it be used in?

Miso can be used instead of salt to flavour dishes such as soups and stews. It mixes well with ingredients such as ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, tahini and citrus zest and juice.
