The digestive system contains 70% of the body’s immune cells, making it the cornerstone of our immune systems. To strengthen these crucial cells and shore up your virus-fighting power , I recommend enjoying 1 tsp. of miso paste daily. Popular in Japanese cooking , this probiotic paste adds a salty, slightly meaty flavor to soups , stews and even salad dressings. Tip: Darker colors deliver a more pronounced flavor but no greater benefits , so opt for a light , white or sweet miso if you prefer a milder taste!

I will suggest this to my sister. She has major digestive problems. I’d like to try adding the paste to soups for more flavor. Does heat kill it?
Yes, heat will kill the probiotics in miso. It is suggested that you take a few tablespoons of soup broth and put them in a cup. Let it cool slightly and add the miso paste, stiring until disolved. After you remove the soup from the stove and let it cool to serving temperature, stir in the miso.
I ate the macrobiotic diet for a number of years so I am familiar with miso. I’ve always loved the flavor!
