“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.
