Miso is a salty, savory, umami-rich Japanese fermented soybean paste. Due to the fermentation process it carries quite a few health benefits since it’s packed with protein, vitamins and minerals. Because of its potency, most recipes will usually only call for a teaspoon or so of miso paste. Red miso has the strongest, saltiest flavor of the three types of miso. The longer the miso ages, the more the flavor intensifies. Use to make soups, stews, marinades, dressings, noodle dishes and if you are real chefy, use it to enhance your sweet recipes!!

The Yutaka range of Japanese food products was introduced to the UK market in 1995. The growing range now includes ingredients for sushi, sauces, soups, rice, noodles and “easy to use” meal kits. Having been the first in the market, the brand continues to be the leading Japanese ingredient brand in 16 countries across Europe and the Middle East. Tazaki Foods, the name behind the Yutaka brand, was the pioneer of Japanese food in the UK when the company opened the first Japanese restaurant in the country over 35 years ago. Since then we have been the leading supplier to the Japanese restaurants, hospitality industries and food manufacturers in the UK. It is these many years of experience in dealing with the finest quality Japanese food ingredients that goes into the development of every Yutaka product – demonstrating the Japanese meaning of Yutaka being “Good Harvest”.
