 Soy-sauce is characterized by being produced
using rice malt.                                                   
Japanese "Sake" is brewed from rice grain &    rice malt.                                                           There are many kinds of Japanese  sakes such as "Jyunmai-shu", "Honjyozou-shu" and         
"Ginyou-shu". They have different brewing process and different levels of rice polish.             

 Due to its importance in fermentating sake, as well as for

producing miso, soy sauce, and a whole range of traditional                Japanese food, the Brewing Society of Japan designated koji

(aspergillus oryzae) as a “National fungus” in 2006.

“National fungus”, Koji is very important for producing                 Japanese traditional healthy foodstuffs.
