EDEN Organic Genmai Miso is a more recent variety of miso made with whole brown rice instead of white rice. Until recently, it was unusual to produce miso made from whole brown rice as it was difficult for the koji Aspergillus oryzae to penetrate the hard bran layer of the rice. It was found that by simply adjusting the milling machine (normally used for making white rice), to lightly scratch the bran surface of the rice removing only a small fraction of the bran enabled the koji to easily penetrate the bran, producing this high quality, nutritious brown rice miso. This is a major innovation since the intact bran layer of brown rice contains most of the health promoting vitamins, nutrients, minerals, and natural oils.

Eden believes in local first whenever it makes sense, and most ingredients are grown from a few miles to a few hundred miles of Eden's Michigan headquarters. These include organic soybeans, dry beans, cabbage, spelt, apples, tart cherries, strawberries, pastry wheat, and tomatoes.

Note: consumers may wonder why Eden Foods products do not carry the green "USDA Organic" seal. Eden Foods explains: "Though all EDEN organic food is grown, handled, processed, and certified in a way that meets and exceeds the requirements for using the 'USDA Organic' seal, Eden chooses not to use this seal on its food labels. In short this seal does not approach Eden's standards for organic, in practice or in spirit."
