Miso is a traditional Japanese food made by fermenting soybeans with salt and koji. Miso is often made with various grains added; rice, barley and other grains with flavors varying from sweet to salty and earthy. Unpasteurized miso has live beneficial bacteria which aid in digestion. Adding miso at the end of cooking over low heat will help to protect these nutrients. Sweet white miso has a light and delicate flavor.
