Does anybody know where to buy organic natto? Or at least natto without preservatives?

    BTW as a fermented product does any natto ever have preservatives??

      Couldn't help but notice your name. Are you a fan of the movie Repoman?

        Yep, and I like eating food out of cans :)

    2. I was on the same quest a year ago. I make my own now. I buy organic soy beans and found the starter in the USA. Really easy.

      1. As far as I know, preservatives are never used in natto. I live in Japan and have never seen them mentioned. However, there MAY be some preservatives in the "tare" liquid seasoning that comes with it.
