Nagano White Miso Paste 2.2 Lb.

Miso is a traditional Japanese seasoning produced by fermenting rice, barley and/or soybeans, with salt and the fungus k?jikin, the most typical miso being made with soy. The result is a thick paste used for sauces and spreads, pickling vegetables or meats, and mixing with dashi soup stock to serve as miso soup. High in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals, miso is still very widely used in Japan, both in traditional and modern cooking, and has been gaining world-wide interest. Miso is typically salty, but its flavor and aroma depend on various factors in the ingredients and fermentation process. White miso has a slightly milder, sweeter flavor than red miso.

Not what you ordered, or at the cost you thought.

Multiply the cost of white miso paste by 5 before deciding to order, because shipping is outrageously expensive. Packaging on the website is misleading, as you will not receive it in a resealable container. Taste is good, but find a very clean, airtight container to store it in your fridge.

Refrigeration Necessary?

Didn’t know until this moment when I randomly read the reviews that it needed to be refrigerated. Item did not arrive in a refrigerated package. The label is all in Japanese and nothing was mentioned on the item description about refrigeration. I had used it after it was sitting in my pantry for about a month and the taste was still a five star rating but needless to say, I will be throwing the rest out which infuriates me because I hate wasting.

expensive shipping

this product must be refrigerated thus has to be overnighted which makes the shipping 3x the price of the product. however it will last in your refrigerator for a year.

Miso Paste

Arrived in package having burst but the mess was contained and understandable since the heat and the shipping handling. Still great product that arrived promptly.

Simply delicious

This miso paste is very tasty, although shipping is quite expensive. I put about 3 tablespoons of the miso paste into 4 cups of dashi stock and add scallions, tofu, and wakame. It’s super easy and takes less than 10 minutes to make restaurant quality miso soup.

Yummy

Just the right amount of flavor and saltiness.

Makes wonderful miso with perfectly suspended clouds throughout the soup.

No problems with shipping.

Strong, but Good

This stuff is strong, less than a teaspoon of paste per 10 oz dashi stock will do you fine. Makes perfect clouds in the broth, and has a good smooth mouthfeel.

Has become a staple item.

Great price. Excellent procduct. Keeps well. Have found many recipes for use other than miso soup. Glad it did not have a short expiration date. Has become a staple food for me. Going healthy.

Delicious and Has multiple uses.

This Miso paste makes a fantastic soup stock, as well as a fish marinade or fish gravy stock. It’s low in sodium, for those watching sodium intake, reasonably and has deliciously unique taste. The only reason I rate it with 4 stars is the better taste of Minute Miso

However, due to Minute Miso’s price I would rate Minute Miso with 4 stars too.
