There are several types of miso. They can be made from soybeans, rice, buckwheat, or barley. They also come light to dark in color. The lighter varieties are less salty and more mellow in flavor, while the darker ones are saltier and have a more intense flavor. Choose the miso that best suits your personal taste for this soup, as you can use any of them.
