Tekka is a rich, hearty and concentrated condiment that is moist yet powdery. Clearspring Tekka, also known as Miso Condiment, is made using time consuming and laborious processes: first gently sautéing chopped burdock root, carrot, and lotus root in unrefined sesame oil. Hatcho (soya bean) miso is then added followed by six hours of simmering where all the liquid evaporates leaving a condiment deeply black in colour while crumbly and semi dry in texture. Chopped ginger is added towards the end of cooking for additional flavour.
Specially formulated by George Ohsawa the founder of modern macrobiotics to enhance the balance of a grain and vegetable based diet and counteract the effects of highly processed and refined foods.
The Japanese do not have a tradition of sprinkling raw salt on their food, instead they prepare condiments in which salt is either cooked with other ingredients or roasted and ground prior to use. Tekka is prepared in this tradition with its saltiness coming solely from hatcho miso.
Tekka should be used sparingly as it is very concentrated and flavourful.

This is lovely to sprinkle on all sorts of foods - hence the title of the review
So glad to have found Clearspring's Tekka. I used to buy Tekka in London over 20 years ago but since moving to the West Country I've struggled to find it. Such a versatile product, a strong savoury, yeast/malt flavour which can be sprinkled on stews or added in the cooking to make a perk up a sauce. Really surprised that Tekka isn't better known in the UK. It's vegan too.
Makes food taste delicious
i'd never tried tekka condiment before and i'm blown away - i'm literally putting it on top of everything now, it just gives such a nice, earthy flavor to things! 200% recommended!
Thank you Clearspring. Great service. Speedy delivery & Great product.
