Product of the week: Favabean Red Miso

How good is Miso soup? I used to have it so often at Japanese restaurants, until I asked how it was made and was shown a little sachet with a whole bunch of nasty ingredients in it! I'm talking E-numbers, MSG and other artificial preservatives and flavour enhancers. Yuck!

So I was very excited to meet Alice Lau from Sunshine Organic Miso, and try her delicious, authentic Miso. Alice's Miso is made with love right here in Brisbane from top quality organic ingredients - no nasties at all! 

Alice uses traditional methods to make her Miso, slowly fermenting it for up to 18 months to achieve optimal flavour and nutrition.

Alice is excited for you to try her newest creation - Favabean Red Miso. It's soy-free miso! So if you're not a fan of soy, you can still have miso.

And it's soo good for you! Fava beans are an excellent source of folate, copper, manganese, magnesium, iron, vitamin K, protein, zinc and fibre. Fermentation makes the fava bean miso rich in enzymes and beneficial bacteria. The high fibre content of both the brown rice and the fava beans provide prebiotics - you can get your good bugs and feed them too!

What's in it?

  • Biodynamic organic fava bean (aka broad bean or faba bean)
  • Biodynamic organic rain-fed brown rice
  • Australian sea salt
  • Artesian spring water (ultraviolent light treated)
  • Inoculate with Aspergillus Oryzae 

Use 1-2 teaspoons of fava bean red miso in any soups, stews, stocks, dips, stir fries & spreads. 

Fava bean miso is gluten free, dairy free and vegan friendly.  It is an substitute for soybean based miso. The fava bean red miso is made in a licensed shared kitchen, traces of peanut, tree nuts and nuts may be present.
