#621.9 Miso Paste White
Net Wt: 35.2 oz (1kg)
White miso, one of the most common types of miso, has sweet overtones with a mild saltiness. It is heavily used in Japanese cuisine; however, miso is becoming a rising star in a variety of cuisines. Use White Miso Paste as an ingredient in marinades, dressings, soups, stocks and spreads. While you might be used to a lighter color for white miso, it is a fermented product and the color change is called the “Maillard Reaction” defined as a chemical reaction between the amino acids and reducing sugars that gives the miso its distinctive “umami” flavor. The dark color occurs during the fermentation process, especially if kept at a higher temperature environment. The dark color change does not affect the flavor profile of this product, therefore, it is safe to use and consume.
