Miso is rich in nutrients and very useful ingredient in the kitchen. Traditionally, miso is made from whole soybeans but we make it using tofu refuse so you can make it easier and quicker!! Though soy pulp is healthy food and rich in nutrients , it is disposed of as industrial waste!! This is an effective use. Very friendly seasoning both people and environment, soy pulp miso.
