Shiro Miso is a fermented soybean paste made by steaming soybeans and white rice and allowing it to sit in cedar vats for a short period making a young light colour miso with a sweeter flavour. During fermentation, which is made quicker by the young white rice, the complex proteins, oils and carbohydrates of grains and soybeans are broken down into more readily digestible amino acids. Shiro miso is used more in summer making lighter soups and sweeter sauces.
