Chef Katie’s Tips:

White Miso vs. Brown Miso:  White miso has the most mild flavor while darker red and brown miso will bring richer, assertive flavor.

Gluten-Free Check:  Miso can be made with a blend of soybeans, barley, and other grains.  If gluten-free is a concern, double-check the label for a certified Gluten-Free paste
