Miso (soybean paste) is a fermented food made by adding salt and koji (malted rice) to grains such as soybeans, rice, and wheat. It is a traditional Japanese food.
There are two theories about the origin of miso: one is that it came from China, and the other is that it was made in Japan during the Nara period (710-1192).
Fermented foods have become popular both in Japan and abroad, as we now know that fermented foods are good for the body.
