Which Grocery Store Aisle Is Miso In?

In many big supermarkets, miso of all colors is kept in the produce area with the tofu, tempeh and mock meats. The same is true of red miso, yellow miso and any other type.

If you don't see it there, look for an organic or natural foods aisle. Since miso is typically refrigerated, you should find it in a cooler.

It is possible to find shelf-stable miso in the grocery store. Usually, you'll see these types of miso in the aisle with Asian products.
