Kyoto Shiro miso is typically made with 1.5 to 2 times as much white rice koji as cooked soybeans and a lower salt ratio than other miso. It is known for its lighter color, smooth texture and milder flavor. One preferred application is to thin it slightly with sake and spread it on fish to marinate prior to grilling.
