About the product
Because our brewery-prepared shio koji plus arrives frozen, its enzymes are still alive.
Differences between this product and other commercially available products: ① Some products use cooked uruchimai rice as well as rice-malt in order to lower their own retail prices. ② Heat or alcohol are used in some products in order to suppress enzyme fermentation, and as a result their shio koji does not become very soft. ③ Some products taste very salty, but are lacking in umami. ④ Seasonings with a mixture of shio koji and animal-based flavors are not usually available.
Compared with other commercially available items, this product has 6.6% less salt. (Commercially available items 12% to 13%).
Seasonings can be a crucial part of a meal, turning plain food into a delicious experience. After all, sometimes we only think we don’t like certain foods because we haven’t tried them with the right seasoning! Sugarlady’s brewery-prepared shio koji plus and other seasoning products are safe and free of chemical seasonings and additives, letting the true, natural flavors of the ingredients themselves shine – and allowing you to enjoy your meal without worry.
How to prepare
Place the shio koji bottle in the refrigerator or beneath running water to defrost before use. It can be used to season or accent a broad range of foods.The koji is alive, and so once defrosted will continue to ferment. After defrosting, be sure to store it in the refrigerator and use as soon as possible. Separation may occur after defrosting, but will not affect the quality of the product. Shake well before use.You may see what appear to be dark brown fibers mixed into the shio koji. These are parts of the rice.
