Shio Koji is an ancient seasoning that has enjoyed a recent resurgence of popularity in Japan. Slowly, the rest of the world is catching on. Shio Koji is an amazingly versatile seasoning which can be used as a direct salt replacement. The magic of Shio Koji is that when salt is replaced, you increase the flavour enhancing properties because of the high levels of umami and you end up using less salt overall!

We use Shio Koji in everything, we put half a teaspoon in our porridge, cook mushrooms in it, add it to our Indian cooking - anything that needs a pinch of salt gets a splash of shio koji.

Shio Koji can also be used to marinate meat and fish - the salt acts to draw out moisture and the natural umami infuses into whatever you’re marinating to create a unique flavour that leaves you wanting more.

Our fresh Shio Koji is untreated and will continue to ferment when left at room temperature. We will send Fresh Miso via Express Shipping to avoid pressure buildup (and possible leakages) while in transit.

Shipping: We offer free shipping for orders $35 or more. All other orders have a flat rate $8 shipping fee.
