What is koji?

Koji is the culture that is used to promote fermentation in Japanese staples such as soy sauce, tamari, miso, saké and vinegar. It is made from steamed rice that has been inoculated with koji spores.

How is it used?
When used in cooking, the enzymes in koji break down food proteins to produce amino acids. These amino acids are responsible for creating umami, a natural richness in glutamate that makes food taste delicious.

What are the health benefits?
Fermented foods help to aid digestion, promote intestinal health, boost the immune system, improve fatigue recovery and aids in beautifying skin, whilst helping to balance cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

こうじのこと

麹は発酵食品。味噌や醤油・日本酒の原料に麹が使われていることはおなじみで、日本人は昔から普通に食してきたものです。あたりまえ過ぎて、近年塩麹が一大ブームになるまで特に意識することもなかったかもしれませんね。

体への効能
発酵が作る酵素は食品成分を分解して、体内では消化吸収を助けます。そうすると腸内環境が整って、免疫力アップ、疲労回復、美肌効果、悪玉コレステロールを減らす、血圧や血糖値を整えるなど、健康に良いことがいっぱいおこります。

料理に旨味をプラス
さらに、ただ健康的なだけでなく、調味料として使うと旨味や風味が増す、肉や魚が柔らかくなる、塩分が少ないのに満足、などいつもの料理がワンランク上の味に仕上げることが!!

この麹の素晴らしい力を豪州に住む人たちにも知って欲しくて、soramameはこうじ製品を作りました。

ハンドメイドにこだわり、放射能検査済み・遺伝子組み換えでない米麹、豪州産オーガニック玄米、オーガニックタマリ醤油、シーソルトなど、ナチュラルな原料だけを使用。砂糖や化学調味料、保存料などの科学添加物は一切加えず、麹の甘味と旨味で仕上げているので、安心してお使いいただけます。

ama-koji 甘こうじは、スムージーやお菓子作りの甘味に使ったり、少し薄めて甘酒として飲んだり。

shio-koji 塩こうじは、魚のマリネや、ドレッシング、野菜を漬ければ簡単に人気のカルチャーベジに。

tamari-koji タマリこうじは、パスタソース、炒飯や炒め物に最適。BBQソース変わりにも使っても美味。
