The Difference Between Dried Rice Koji And Fresh Raw Koji


Dried koji refers to koji that has been dried by removing the moisture from raw koji (freshly made koji). Since raw koji has a lot of water content, germs can easily grow and it has the disadvantage that it cannot be stored for a long period of time. Dried koji was created with the idea that the finished raw koji could be stored for a long period of time. For dried koji, only the amount that you want to use at the time can be rehydrated with water, and the rest can be stored.
