MiSoLa produces miso and other koji products
made from Finnish grains and peas.
We also have a basic range including miso made from rice koji.
Miso is a traditional Japanese food made by fermenting a mixture of koji, beans and salt. In addition to miso soup, miso is also used to marinate meat and fish, and as a dip for vegetables. It is also interesting to note that even in Japan, each region and family has its own unique style of making miso. The variety of koji and beans used to make miso allows for a wide range of taste variations.

Koji & Koji Products
Koji is the fermentation of grains and beans by the growth of Aspergillus oryzae. It is widely believed that koji has been used in Japan since the Nara period (710-794), about 1300 years ago. Many seasonings and other foods essential to Japanese cuisine, such as miso, soy sauce and vinegar, are derived from koji, and in 2006 koji was designated the “national fungus” by the Brewing Society of Japan.
Shio koji is a very popular seasoning in Japan. It can be used as a substitute for salt and it brings out the flavour of meat, fish and vegetables while making them tender.
Soy sauce koji has a milder and more savoury taste than soy sauce itself. It is also versatile as a sauce for main dishes.
Amazake’s “ama” is for sweet. The only ingredients used to make Amazake are rice koji, cooked rice and water, with no added sugar or sweeteners. It is enriched with vitamins and minerals and can be drunk as it is, or added to smoothies and cakes.
All of MiSoLa’s koji are fresh koji. Perfect for making miso,
handmade shio-koji, soy sauce-koji and amazake.
