** Miso and Tamari will keep for an unlimited time when refrigerated. **
South River Miso and Tamari are unpasteurized, living foods, rich in enzymes and beneficial microorganisms. These products are in continuous fermentation which may cause expansion or leakage when activated by warmth and vibration during shipping. THIS DOES NOT AFFECT THE QUALITY OF THE PRODUCT. We try to minimize expansion by shipping only during the cooler months.
Because of this sensitivity to warmth, OUR MAIN SHIPPING SEASON IS FROM September 15th to April 15th with the following exceptions:
WE DO NOT SHIP ANYWHERE AFTER MAY 25TH.
