View Full Version : is miso raw?

I was wondering if miso is raw and if so, what type? I've heard of people putting miso in their raw recipes. does this mean the fermented soybean paste or a powder? I haven't thrown out my miso paste yet but I'm not sure if I should use it

Miso is a fermented soybean paste. I buy Miso Master which claims to be fresh & unpasteurized. That said, I personally don't consider foods like that to be truly raw, but they add enough value to some dishes (and I use them in such small quantities) that I allow it. Here's the link to what I buy: http://www.great-eastern-sun.com/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/42/s/miso/category/15/

thanks! I may use mine in smal quantities and then get a different brand like the one you recommended, because I really like miso and need some things like that to keep me on track with eating raw.
What type of tool do you use to cut your noodles with? they all look AMAZING ! All your food does!:drool:

aww, thanks! :-) :-) I actually just bought the Benriner spiral slicer today, which worked so well! I also have a spirooli, but I don't think it's going to get used much now that I have the Benriner.

did you order the slicer online or find it in a store?

Miso is made from boiled soya but the unpasteurised ones do have live stuff growing in them so they are better than the pasteurised sorts. It is hard to find soya that isn't genectically modified though so do try to buy organic if GM bothers you.
