Natto Starter, 10g

Natto is a traditional Japanese food made by fermenting whole soybeans with Bacillus subtilus var. Natto.

This fermentation results in the formation of a slimy texture and very strong flavour and taste. Natto is eaten in Japan with cooked rice as a breakfast food, but is now becoming popular in all parts of the world because of its health benefits. When the Bacillus subtilus bacteria grow on the cooked soybeans they produce a mucilaginous coating. The high viscosity of this mucilage is an important quality criteria for natto. It has a distinctive smell, somewhat akin to ammonia or overripe cheese. Many find the taste unpleasant and smelly, while others relish it as a delicacy.
