3. Miso and Natto

There are also two very beneficial fermented foods made from soybeans: Miso and natto, both of which originate in Japan. Many people are first exposed to miso in the form of miso soup, which is served as an appetizer in many Japanese restaurants. Miso is a concoction of fermented soybeans and koji (a type of fungus). It strengthens the immune system and reduces the risk of cancer. Miso can also be made from brown rice or barley.

Natto is another Japanese dish made from soybeans fermented with the bacillus subtilis. Natto contains an enzyme called nattokinase which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps fight cancer.
