What to Make with this Koji Rice
This rice koji is suitable for making miso, and to age meat. It has a very strong protease type enzyme activity (proteins).
Its balanced enzymatic activity in amylase and protease is perfect for brewing homemade sake and making shio-koji (salty koji).
Produced in Montreal, Canada, this dried koji is made from steamed rice inoculated with Aspergillus oryzae spores. It is then slightly dehydrated and packed to preserve its vitality.
The rice and culture are incubated for 45 hours to produce a dry, fragrant koji with a grainy texture.
During this process, the starches, and proteins in the rice are converted into carbohydrates and amino acids, making them more digestible.
