The Perfect Miso Soup

Did you know that miso soup is considered one of the world's healthiest foods? The consumption of miso found in soups, stir-fry's and other dishes has been linked to some amazing health benefits. 

In addition to being an anti-oxidant rich food source, miso is also a good source of minerals; manganese, copper, zinc and contains protein, fiber, and a wide variety of phytonutrients [source]. These nutrients help the body create a shield against disease and illness. Talk about being a power food.

Miso soup is a big staple in Japanese culture, and most frequently consume the dish in Japanese restaurants. However, it is one of the simplest and cost-friendly dishes you can make right from your own home. It is even great as a savory breakfast dish (think outside of the box for a second). Yes, breakfast! It's a great way to start the day with a boost of nutrients to make you feel great all day long! 

TIP: 90% of soybeans in the U.S. are being genetically modified, so we highly recommend to choose organic soy and miso products!
