Shinshu Miso Brewery's Original Miso Soup Mini Gift Box
Savor the essence of Shinshu's 'Three-Year Miso' in an Instant Miso Soup
This refers to miso that is brewed in the spring, aged through the seasons, and the winter, and then matured for a full three years before it is ready for shipment.
This three-year miso is highly valued for its exceptional flavor and aroma, making it the true essence of Shinshu miso.
Most miso soup available in the market is filled with the strong taste of artificial seasonings and preservatives.
That's where this "Shinshu Miso Brewery's Original Miso Soup" comes in – it was developed to provide a convenient way to enjoy authentic Shinshu miso soup while preserving its nutritional value and flavor.
It uses naturally fermented miso including the three-year miso without any additives, and its true taste is brought to life through the freeze-drying technique.
With just hot water added, you can recreate the authentic taste of miso soup from a local brewery.
What makes them special?
Conventional miso found in supermarkets often relies heavily on artificial additives and is produced using rapid fermentation methods to hasten delivery, typically taking just about a month from start to finish.
The sterilization process employed in this method leads to the destruction of yeast and lactic acid bacteria, causing a loss of valuable nutrients.
Regrettably, over 90% of Japanese miso falls into this category.
Their Miso, on the other hand, remains committed to preserving the traditional production methods of yesteryears."
Dedication to Ingredients and Water Quality
1. 100% Domestic Soybeans, Primarily from Shinshu
They exclusively use domestically sourced soybeans, primarily from Shinshu, as the key ingredient in their miso.
To preserve the traditional flavor of their Miso, they rely on the abundant dietary fiber found in domestically grown soybeans.
2. Utilizing Spring Water from the Japanese Alps
In the art of miso making, the importance of water cannot be overstated.
Matsumoto, Nagano prefecture, is recognized as one of Japan's "100 Best Waters of the Heisei Era" by the Ministry of the Environment.
The blessing of this pristine water from the Northern Alps is indispensable to the craft of their Miso.
This gift from the heavens is also our treasure.
How it's Crafted?
1. Steaming the Rice
The natural miso-making season in Shinshu begins in spring, typically around the time when peach blossoms bloom.
They start by thoroughly washing and steaming carefully selected domestically grown rice, marking the first step in miso production.
2. Cultivating Koji Mold
After steaming, the rice is inoculated with koji mold spores and placed in a koji room. The quality of the rice and the temperature in the koji room are crucial factors in the koji-making process.
The rice with koji mold is left to rest overnight, allowing the koji mold to propagate.
This step is another vital part of the process.
4. Koji Completion
After two days (48 hours) of meticulous care in the koji room, the koji is ready. Next, we move on to cooking the soybeans.
5. Boiling the Soybeans
They thoroughly wash domestically sourced soybeans and boil them in large pots until they become tender.
The softened soybeans are then measured and evenly distributed, left to cool overnight.
6. Lactic Acid Bacteria and Yeast
The cooled soybeans accumulate plenty of airborne lactic acid bacteria and yeast, contributing to the unique flavor of natural miso and promoting overall health benefits.
7. Filling the Cedar Barrels
Soybeans, koji, and salt are combined and packed into cedar barrels.
While modern miso breweries have increasingly turned to stainless steel containers for efficiency, their Miso continues to use cedar barrels for this step.
8. Turning the Barrels
Miso that has sufficiently fermented during the summer is transferred to different large barrels in early October, often coinciding with the dance of red dragonflies in Shinshu. In late January of the following year, as the cold sets in, the miso is moved to a cold storage area for another year of maturation.
9. Miso Completion
During the maturation process, amino acids from the soybeans and sugars from the rice koji react, resulting in the formation of melanoidins, a brown pigment.
This melanoidin is the hallmark of proper maturation.
Well-aged miso exhibits a rich color and a distinctive matured aroma.
"Three-Year Miso" is a genuine Shinshu miso that has undergone a slow and thorough maturation process.
It contains no additives, shortcuts, visual enhancements, or preservation methods.
It is never subjected to heat treatment, remaining entirely additive-free and retaining its enzyme activity.
Theirmiso is truly alive.
