Shio koji is a natural seasoning used to marinate, tenderize, and enhance the umami in foods. It’s made of just a few simple ingredients: sea salt, water, and rice koji.
Made from premium grade koshihikari short grain rice, grey sea salt, and purified water, we ferment our shio koji for a minimum of two weeks to fully balance the flavor.
You can use shio koji to marinate meats, make pickles, flavor your vegetables or use it as a salt substitute. When used as a marinade, it imparts a delicious flavor to your foods and tenderizes proteins, while bringing out a natural sweetness and umami that is unique and versatile.
In a recipe that calls for one teaspoon of salt, you can substitute with 2 teaspoons of shio-koji.
