Savory Seaweed Miso-Cup® relies exclusively upon natural, unpasteurized light miso, which is freeze-dried fresh from the aging barrels, without additives or preservatives. We take extra care to use freeze-drying methods which maintain the naturally occurring living cultures for which fresh miso is prized. Next, high quality vegetable ingredients are added to make Miso-Cup® complete. It makes wonderful soup in seconds with just hot water and contains no added sugar, cholesterol, saturated fats, MSG or preservatives. Vegan. Gluten-free.
