As for the taste, the flavours are strangely reminiscent of very ripe camembert cheese.
Natto is very nutritious, extremely rich in vitamin K2 (beneficial against vascular calcification and osteoporosis) and amino acids, as well as having beneficial effects on intestinal flora.
Natto is very popular for traditional Japanese breakfasts. People add whatever they like to them. We recommend them seasoned with slightly sweet soy sauce, karachi mustard or strong French mustard, egg yolk and nori crumbs. Mix everything up and enjoy your feast. 50g of rehydrated natto is enough for one person.
We also recommend it for making "gunkan maki". A slice of nori surrounds rice and rises 1.5 cm above it. Add the natto, a quail egg yolk, a hint of karachi mustard, a hint of grated ginger if you like, a little chopped spring onion or chives and you're done. A special sashimi soy sauce is perfect for seasoning just before eating.
Our natto is unique because it is freeze-dried and so you won’t have any preservation problems. All you need to do is rehydrate the amount required.
For one person, take 20g of freeze-dried natto and lay the beans flat out in a soup plate. Add 2.5 tablespoons of water and leave to rehydrate for 3 to 4 hours. Mix well before eating and season with a little salt or soy sauce. Then eat immediately.
