Clearspring guarantees to deliver the best quality organic miso from Japan. Miso is an authentic vegan fermented food which has been produced in Japan since the 8th century, over 1,000 tons being consumed there daily in many dishes and soups.
Due to the high demand for Clearspring miso, we contract produce organic miso at several manufacturers in different regions in Japan. All our miso is made to traditional recipes with the best possible organic ingredients but since miso is a live product the taste, colour and consistency will vary slightly depending on the region and the season. The lighter coloured miso often comes from the southern region, where due to the warmer climate the required maturity time is shorter than in the northern region which typically make darker miso.
Occasionally however the miso may continue to naturally ferment in the jar and as a result the colour of the miso will gradually darken over time. This continuing maturation may also cause the lid to bulge but rest assured that the product is still delicious and safe to consume. To slow down this fermentation, simply keep the product refrigerated.
