Some molecules, such as proteins and starches, are too large to be intercepted by our taste buds.
The magic of shio koji is that it contains a large amount of enzymes.
These enzymes are able to break down large molecules into smaller ones.
These new molecules can more easily be captured by the taste buds, creating new flavors!
Shio koji also affects the texture of meat, making it incredibly juicy and tender. It also strengthens the flesh of fish and seafood.
