I have been on a mission, due to one of my latest internet preoccupations, to learn all that I can about the vitamin K group. In the process I found out about the many qualities of natto and the amazing health benefit claims made about the gooey soy bean ferment. That was enough for me I had to try it, I was like a dog with a bone and wasnt going to let up until I scored some to try.

I looked locally and nothing even in the Japanese restaurant chains, lots of sushi and sashimi but no natto, Asian markets didnt have it, Whole Foods didnt have it. I decided it was time to look online for a source of quality natto because I didnt want one made from GMO soybeans which is what most soybeans are today. Searching the WWW again it was slim pickin’s even on Amazon which has everything you could want whether you need it or not. They had a dried ground powdered version or you could get the raw materials to make your own which I may use eventually. However I needed to try it first because along with the beneficial aspects touted you also hear things like “it was awful” or “it took awhile to aquire a taste”, or “I couldnt stand the taste or mouth feel”...I didnt care I was going in with an open mind.

Searching on I happened upon a product made by a great little business start-up in NYC who call themselves “Nyrture... New York Natto”. They make only natto and it is fresh made from Non GMO soy beans and Bacillus subtillus a probiotic bacteria...those are the only ingredients and it is never frozen and is packed in glass jars. So I sent an email asking if I could purchase a lesser amount of one jar because they have a four jar minimum purchase, four is fine if you know you like natto but I havent tried it yet.

The next day got an answer saying they would work with me and asked if I would be okay with two jars for economic reasons on their end. I agreed and then called my order in, had a nice chat with a very nice lady by the name of Ann, who is actually an owner who took my information...for a two jar order of “black soy bean natto”, and an “organic original”. On the phone she explained the black soy bean is a little milder and has a hint of chocolate and gave me a couple of pairing suggestions for a first timer such as adding tamari which is a wheat free soy sauce. The natto was on its way.

The next day I had a message on the phone from Ann who said she had omitted a digit from my credit card and needed the CC info again, but in the mean time she shipped the order unpaid trusting I would call her back with the info, thought that was pretty cool.

I ordered on Sunday, the package arrived on Monday I now had two jars of natto waiting for me to give it a shot, Ill also add the packaging was first rate, well buffered and had an ice pack. I was a little apprehensive to try it because of all the bad press I’d heard. I really wanted to like it and tried to prepare myself (open mind) sitting down with my first bowl dowsed with tamari sauce (non GMO) on top of sliced avocado.

For my first mouthful I had it unadulterated, sans condiment so in it goes stringy goo hanging from the spoon and...wow this is not too bad, it really does have a smokey hint of chocolate and the mouth feel is awesome, its a little bit difficult to keep it from slipping off the spoon but it’s traditionally eaten with chopsticks so I am the greenhorn here. I eat the remainder with tamari and avocado and it was delicious. I could have had more only a serving of the now wonderful bean ferment is about three Tbsp’s which contain a heaping helping of K vitamins, the probiotic B subtilis, and natokinase and being a beginner I didn’t want to OD on it...I just found a new staple in my diet.

For breakfast today I had the “organic original” with scrambled eggs and pork and I am sold, the taste is for sure different but not something that turns me off. It has the taste of beans, is a little bit bitter and smokey and gooey...Mmmm.

Dr D, I can understand how a kid might find the taste and texture a little funky.

Thanks for sharing this!  I’ve often wondered about natto and may work up the courage to go this route as well.

Thanks Randall, thats a pretty good price for basically three servings, I’d like to find an Asian market out here that has it, maybe in Providence, RI. I tried the link for Asian Grocer but the domain name is for sale for whatever reason.

Quoted From Boo:
Thus, I wouldn’t take Vit D without also taking Vit K2 (but that’s just me).

How much K2 do you take?
