Lohas Hatcho Miso has no barley added and thus takes longer to ferment, usually a minimum of 12 months. Known as the "emperor's miso" and highly prized in Japan, it is an excellent medicinal, hardy, deep robust miso. The miso is placed in giant cedar casks, then covered with a wooden pressing lid and 6,000 pounds of stones placed as a pyramid on top. This tremendous pressure, along with the relatively small amount of water, enables Hatcho Miso to be made with considerably less salt than other long-aged misos. This famous miso is the most revered in all of Japan.
