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

    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.

      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.

        WHERE? What CITY?

        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?
