There’s Something About Miso

In our Issaquah Japanese restaurant, you can start off your meal right with a bowl of good, old fashioned miso soup. It’s a common dish, probably one that you’ve had in countless Japanese venues without giving it a second thought. But did you know that it’s also amazingly good for you?

The truth is that miso is made from fermented soy, which is the very healthiest kind of soy. The production of miso involves mixing soy with a culture starter called koji, which loads the final product with highly beneficial microbes. A diet rich in miso can protect you from all sorts of ailments, including viral infections, radiation poisoning, and prostate, breast, lung, and colon cancer. It also serves as a powerful antioxidant, combatting the effects of aging and preserving healthy, youthful skin. Nutritionists believe that miso may be one of the secrets behind Japan’s superior health record!

So come on down to Aji Sushi & Grill today and start making miso a bigger part of your diet. You won’t regret it!
