“Natto can be described as the “food which is made of boiled soybeans with natto yeasts growing on the surface, producing very unique sticky paste called the ‘strings of natto’ and special flavor of natto.” When they grow, natto yeasts make it nutritious food by dissolving proteins in soybeans for their easy absorption, while creating various vitamins and enzymes.
The fermentation process of natto is short unlike that of miso bean paste or soy source. The fermentation of natto takes only about 20-22 hours from the start. From the start of processing to shipment, it is about 3 days at shortest.”
