Nutritional values

The Japanese like to start the day with a bowl of miso soup, because it does not burden the organism, but gives warmth and strength for the start of the day. And more than the daily requirement of niacin is included - important for nutrient metabolism and energy production.

Miso is used according to traditional Chinese medicine depending on the season: In winter, dark, rather warming paste is preferred. Bright ones, as used in this soup, are not fully matured and are therefore suitable for the warmer months.
