Dried Rice Koji Powder

We offer single-origin Organic Dried Rice Koji Powder, sourcing rice harvested from the JAS certified organic rice farms in Kurashiki-City in Okayama Prefecture, Japan. The rice is carefully handcrafted into rice koji in small batches. The result is a nutty-flavored rice koji, perfect for Amazake and Shio koji making. 

Using Rice Koji Powder is a convenient way to make smooth-textured Amazake and Shio Koji in one step without further processing. In addition, making Shio Koji normally takes a week to a couple of weeks. However, with this rice koji powder, Shio Koji can be made and ready to use in just one day. Rice koji powder can also be taken as supplement (1 tsp per day) or added to yogurt or other foods, providing extra nutrition and liive koji enzymes, such as amylase, lipase, and protease. See below for how to make Amazake and Shio Koji.
