Miso is an ancient, time-tested seasoning which has been enhancing human health for at least 2,500 years! It is a combination of grains and beans which are cooked and salted, then fermented in large wooden vats for weeks or several years depending on the variety. See more information about our miso making process.

South River Miso is the perfect seasoning for the nourishing squash, roots, greens and grains of the fall harvest. Look for many delectable recipes on our website.

Stay healthy and whole-hearted!
