WHAT IS KOJI?

Miso, soy sauce, shio koji, amazake, rice vinegar, mirin, sake and shocyu are all made by koji.

Koji is a kind of mold ( aspergillus oryzae ) that is cultivatad to steamed grains.

Koji creates more than 100 different enzymes that break down starch and proteins into glucose and amino acid. The beauty of fermentation is that it enhances the flavor of ingredients and increases their nutritional value.
