Natto is often brought up as a dish that typically repulses people who haven’t grown up with it due to its fermented flavour and smell plus slimy texture that takes some getting used to for many. A healthy and convenient dish that can easily be picked up at convenience stores for a protein and vitamin hit on the go.

Natto is often considered a superfood for its support to the digestive system and blood pressure levels plus it’s meant to leave you with healthy skin and nails.
