Shio Koji adds depth and subtle sweetness to your cooking. Its active enzymes tenderize meat, poultry and fish while adding umami flavor.
We make our Shio Koji using handcrafted organic rice koji made from premium short grain Akitakomachi rice, ancient salt from Utah and California spring water to create the best umami experience. Also, our Shio Koji has a creamy consistency, so it is versatile to use.

Wanted to experiment with koji marinated Ribeye steaks and this stuff was awesome. I marinated for 24 hrs, cleaned it off, threw it in my sous vide for a couple hours, pat-dried it then seared it 🔥🔥🔥. The koji added an aged flavor that would normally take weeks to get. Highly recommended!
