Miso is one of the most well-known Japanese condiments in the world today and it is recognized for its tremendous health benefits! It has been used for more than 1300 years.
At its most basic, Miso is a paste derived by fermenting soybeans. These soybeans are mixed with salt and a type of mold called koji (the same as is used to make sake).
The result is a delicious, appetizing paste that can infuse serious flavours in your tofu, ramen, soups, and even burgers, marinades, fish and stir-fry. But it’s most widely used for Japan’s most famous dish – miso soup.

Since its establishment in 1854, Marukome has offered fermented food products, including miso, to consumers for over 160 years. Marukome has now become the No.1 Miso Company thanks to their constant pursuit of innovation, production methods and new ideas.
For instance, in the old days when miso was delivered in barrels, Marukome was quick to start using cardboard boxes which were much easier to carry. Moreover, Marukome kept innovating in the miso industry to develop world’s first miso including Dashi (soup stock) and introduce new packaging styles which is more convenient to handle.
Nowadays, Marukome continues to evolve while producing not only miso but also koji and soybean products to spread Japan’s proud fermented food culture to the world.
