Koji magic! Sake, miso, mirin...Koji is what connects them. @iweg_canada: Sake brewing shares historic origins with miso and soy sauce! They all use a form of koji (that’s Aspergillus oryzae for all you nerds out there!), the magical ingredient that Asians have been using for thousands of years. It produces enzymes that convert starches to sugars, which are then fermented into alcohol in sake brewing. Full of vitamins and minerals, miso, mirin, soy sauce and sake...they’re all yummy and basically health foods. So get drinking! #fermentedfoods #sakeeducation #kojimagic ... See MoreSee Less
