Umami Pantry is all about bringing real flavour back to real food and we’ve discovered an ancient fermentation practice to help us do that – miso. Miso has been around for over 2,000 years and is a paste of naturally fermented soybeans. The fermentation of soybeans, koji rice and salt results in a delicious savoury paste that is packed full of nutrients, packed full of protein and most importantly it is packed full of Umami.
Umami? Yep, you’ve probably heard the word but maybe you aren’t sure what it means. Umami is a delicious savoury flavour – it is the flavour that you get in some foods that leaves your taste buds craving for more. Umami is what makes miso a secret weapon in your pantry – add it to any cooking instead of salt and all of a sudden you have gone from tasty to mind-blowingly good! Umami Pantry is on a mission to make your food taste better and make it healthier all at the same time.
