One of my most favorite cuisines to eat is Asian. A lot of Asian dishes are made with mirin, a Japanese sweet rice wine. Normally, we buy Eden brand mirin, but I was in Target the other day and took a glance at this.
So naturally, I turned to look at the ingredients.
This stuff is mostly loaded with corn syrup and sugar! I was surprised at what I saw here. Now let’s look at Eden’s mirin.
Now let’s look at the ingredients in here.
This looks much better! No corn syrup and no sugar. They just use the natural sweetness of the rice. If you were wondering, koji is white rice that has mold spores cultivated into it. It is actually how saki is made. If you would like to read more about it, click here. I love, and highly recommend all of Eden’s products. One great thing about them is that they support GMO labeling and stand behind all their ingredients. They rock!
