Miso’s many nutritional benefits have made it an important part of the Japanese diet for hundreds of years. One of those major benefits is miso’s rich source of probiotics. Probiotics are good bacteria, essential for a healthy digestive system.
The protein, fiber, and lecithin that you get from the soybeans in miso also have their own wealth of healthy benefits, such as lowering cholesterol and preventing arterial blockage.
The Japanese have always attributed cleansing and detoxifying qualities to the traditional morning bowl of miso soup, and indeed, miso soup is full of ingredients and properties that contribute to overall good nutrition and health.
