Aka miso by Namikura Miso Co. is a perennial Japanese condiment, red miso paste made from fermenting soybeans with white rice koji, a culinary mold carrying umami flavors. This paste is aged at least for six months and is made with higher soybeans content - that’s why it brings robust umami to palates.
Miso is a quintessential ingredient of many traditional Asian, predominantly Japanese dishes. It’s a paste made from fermented soybeans, white rice koji, a naturally occurring mold necessary for making not only miso but fabled sake, too. This Japanese condiment is loved for its salty and umami flavors - an irreplaceable addition for miso soup, tofu dishes, udon, and ramen. There are more than a thousand different types of miso, varying in color, flavor, texture, thickness, and red miso is one of them.
