An extremely RISKY item to serve ... But we love it!! 'Miso soup with sea weed' at Terrassen.. The most nourishing and hearty thing you can have it for the day. Replace it for a cup of coffee or have it have as a soup. Miso is a paste of boiled soya beans fermented over a year. One specific health benefit of miso is the protection it provides against exposure to radiation and heavy metals. This was verified during research after world war 2, when doctors treating nuclear Holocaust survivors realized that they are not affected by radiations induced diseaseas. Miso.. Is high in UMAMI, the fifth taste. It leaves a lingering aftertaste in your mouth. Its an acquired taste, but taste worth acquiring.
