The Story of Miso-Cup
Miso (pronounced meé-so), one of Asia's most important foods, was created by the ancient Chinese more than two thousand years ago. Buddhist monks later brought this versatile soyfood to Japan, where it evolved into the delicious miso soup we know today.
Miso was originally reserved exclusively for nobility, but it was eventually shared more widely, and has now become a treasured staple in kitchens throughout the Orient. The popularity of Japanese cuisine has made miso soup a worldwide favorite, thanks to its wonderful flavor and unique nutritional profile.
To make Organic Traditional Miso-Cup with Tofu, our miso craftsmen age certified organic soybeans and certified organic rice with a special starter culture. Sea salt, time and pressure are employed to regulate this natural aging process. Next, we freeze-dry the fresh, unpasteurized organic miso to retain its maximum benefits, adding only select natural ingredients, such as mineral-rich wakame seaweed and organic tofu (another great soyfood), to make Organic Miso-Cup complete.
Like yogurt, miso is considered to be a living food. That is why Edward & Sons takes extra care to use costly freeze-drying methods that retain, as much as possible, the naturally occurring living cultures for which fresh miso is prized. Miso-Cup is a vegan soyfood, boasting a rich, satisfying flavor that easily replaces meat or poultry as the foundation for soups, stews or gravies. It is a natural source of isoflavones, and totally free from cholesterol and trans fat.
Like all Edward & Sons products, Miso-Cup offers discerning consumers true "Convenience Without Compromise!" Perhaps the first "convenience health food", Miso-Cup has been nourishing people on the go since 1978 and has become internationally famous as America's leading natural instant soup.
Organic Traditional Miso-Cup is produced in a facility that is both HACCP and Organic Certified. From the farmer's field to the final packed, independents monitoring of regulated procedures is your assurance of product safety and organic integrity.
