Miso Koji Starters (Powder type)

Higuchi Moyashi makes and sells koji starters perfect for the miso industry, drawing on our ideals of consistent quality and high purity, the ceaseless efforts of our research team, as well as the guidance of leading voices in the miso industry and miso related organizations. As research into miso making has advanced, expectations and demands for the realization of suitable koji starters have increased. However, given the variations in koji making such as in types of raw materials and koji-making machinery, standardization is not possible. Accordingly, as the necessity for a variety of koji starters has evolved, we have developed a wide range of miso koji starters to meet the diverse needs of miso makers. These products –including new products– are listed here. Please choose the one most suitable to your needs based on the distinguishing features in the table.
