Created mainly from soybeans, rice, salt, and filtered water, miso is a Japanese favorite that can be eaten on its own as a meal or used to add flavor to a number of recipes. When it’s made, miso is typically formed into a paste, which can then be used in miso soup or other dishes. But the miso paste can also be freeze dried and ground into a fine powder, making it easier to store and more versatile to use. Miso powder is available in a range of options—ranging in color from white to brown.
Miso powder is created using filtered water, rice, koji, soybeans, and salt. During its creation, miso is aged and fermented to give it its flavor, color, and texture. Lighter varieties of miso—which are mellower in flavor—are made using fewer soybeans and aged for a shorter amount of time. Darker varieties, on the other hand, tend to have much richer and sharper flavor profiles as a result of their longer aging processes.
While miso soup is arguably the most common use of miso powder, this Japanese staple is versatile enough to be used in a wide variety of dishes. Red and white miso powder can be used in the production of spices, seasonings, sauces, soups, chips, desserts, and more.
