Question Natto - 04-13-2007, 05:14 PM

How do you not have a natto thread
The fermented soy beans that is so healthy but so disgustingly disgusting both to the taste & to the nose & to the eye.

It smells of rotten garbage, it looks like something that belongs up a whales nose & tastes of poop!

So do you like it?

It is one of those love it or hate it things.

Let's see...yes, it is disgusting. No, it is nutrion-wise not very healthy.

And technically, only old and very traditional Japanese people eat it.

Almost every japanese person I've met (I live in East Japan) eats it & goes on about how healthy it is.
Personally I hate it, it tastes like feet.

Have you ever noticed that they say that little healthy bit about just about everything you eat.

Chinese do that a lot too. They are like, please order our delicious dog penis. Very good for your virility. However eating testicles can be bad for a woman's health so I don't think they would recommend that.

Green tea is actually fairly good for you because of the antioxidants. But yeah, the only way I can eat natto is very fast followed by something strong like umeboshi.
