For five centuries, miso craftsmen at the Hatcho Miso Company have followed the same recipe to make their unique style of savoury miso. Widely known and celebrated as the miso supplied to the Emperor of Japan for over one hundred years, this pure soya bean miso is a powerhouse of concentrated nutrition, with 80% more protein and 25% less salt than either long aged brown rice or barley miso. Clearspring Organic Hatcho Miso is made from 100% soy beans, slowly made and fully aged in cedarwood kegs. In contrast with other types of miso, hatcho miso remains shelf stable even when packed in pouches, with no need for pasteurisation.All Clearspring products are 100% vegetarian/vegan, GM free with no artificial additives, MSG, colourings, preservatives or added refined sugar.
