Mighty, Mighty Miso

In our Lynnwood Japanese restaurant, just like in any good sushi place, you can start off your meal right with a good side of miso soup. You’ve probably had this dish before; it’s common, it’s simple, and it’s delicious! But did you know that it’s also amazingly good for you? Indeed, it is largely believed that fermented soy products like this may account for much of the healthier trends across east Asia.

The procedure that goes into making miso involves mixing soy with a culture starter called koji, which loads the final product with cultures of highly beneficial microflora. A regular diet of miso can protect you from all sorts of problems, including viral infections, radiation poisoning, and several types of cancer including prostate, breast, lung, and colon. It also serves as a powerful antioxidant, combatting the effects of aging and preserving beautiful skin. It’s even been known to reduce the effects of menopause!

With that in mind, come down to Wild Wasabi today and start making miso a regular part of your life. Your body will thank you for it!
