Mitoku Traditional Natto Spores
Product Review (submitted on February 13, 2013):
Initially I was frustrated a bit when my natto batches were just not coming out as I remembered as a child. Then i realized I was using soybeans that did not look at all like the ones I used so many years ago... they were too large. Large beans will not allow the natto spores to penetrate the bean enough to allow them the needed nutrition to make good natto. So it took a long time in searching and then my wife noticed there is a family farm in Iowa that has started growing really honest to goodness natto soybeans... the tiny ones! Well we ordered them up right away and oh my what excellent natto!!
