What is Aspergillus Sojae?

Healthy Japanese Ume Extract

Aspergillus Sojae is a type of koji spore that is specially used for making soy sauce and miso. Unlike the common koji spore starter (Aspergillus Oryzae), A.Sojae will result in koji with less sweetness, making it perfect to make salty fermented food like soy sauce or miso.

While sake making requires koji starter that has a high ability to decompose rice starch, during soy sauce or miso making, it’s important to use koji starter that can decompose soybean protein, which is the raw material of soy sauce and miso. When A. Sojae and A. Oryzae are compared with each other, it’s clear that A. Sojae has more protease genes that A. Oryzae and work better when decomposing soybean protein. That is why A. Sojae is great for soy sauce brewing.

What’s Special About This Koji Starter?

This koji starter is packed with Aspergillus Sojae bacteria. As soon as it is kept in a warm temperature, the spores can grow quickly. The starter is characterized by low alpha-amylase and high proteinase with the distinctive scent of A. Sojae fungus. It is a spore starter that has been favored for a long time with little coloring.
