I discovered that I can buy frozen natto at the T&T Market, and so I've been enjoying it as a snack lately. It is fermented soybeans and looks a lot like lumpy mucas that has a strong cheesy smell. In Japan, it tends to be one of those foods that the Japanese people test on foreigners to see what reaction they'll get. I developed a taste for it so I wouldn't be one of those who "failed" the test.

It is a popular food in Hokkaido and everyone I talked with there claimed it was really healthy for you. I just looked at my translated label and discovered the following is in each serving:

Fiber 12g (48% of daily req)
Protein 8g

That's pretty impressive. I think I'll continue to seek it out every chance I get. I wonder how that compares with edamame (regular ol' soybeans)?
