Frequently Asked Question

How should I store Miso?

The best way to store miso, considered a living food, is to keep it in the refrigerator.

How long can I keep Miso?

Miso is a “preservative food,” that can be kept for a long period of time.

If kept in your refrigerator, the flavour would stay longer.

The colour of my miso turned a bit darker a while after I purchased it. Why?

The darkening colour of miso is caused by the ‘maillard reaction,’ which occurs when amino acids from soybeans chemically react with sugar and turn brown. Darkening of the colour occurs rapidly especially in a warm environment. It does not pose any food safety threat.
