Nutritional balance and intestinal activity!
Improve the quality of your daily diet with a scoop.
Sonomono natto powder is more than natto. The exclusive freeze-drying process maintains the nutritional value of natto and reduces protein deterioration. Compared to raw natto, sonomono natto powder allows the efficient intake of nutrients and probiotics. One single scoop contains the same probiotics amount as 10 packages of regular natto. These probiotics are the critical element in enhancing the barrier power of your body.
We offer two types of natto powder, normal and mild. Mild features less natto smell and stickiness, making it an excellent option for baby food or people who find natto smell overwhelming.

What is an effective way to increase the barrier power?
Let’s increase intestinal bacteria using “natto bacteria.”
This will also support the barrier power!
The key to increasing the barrier power is improving intestinal activity. The increase of good bacteria improves the intestinal environment. A recent discovery points that more than 60% of the immune cells reside in the intestine. Those cells’ function is to protect us from viruses and other nocive organisms. Maintaining a healthy intestinal environment leads to an increase in barrier power.Natto is an optimal food for intestinal health; it contains billions of Bacillus subtilis or “natto bacteria” that help to normalize the intestinal environment. Other foods also contain probiotics, but natto powder contains Bacillus subtilis in spore form. A spore is a natural cell structure that confers resistance to heat and dryness. Thanks to its spore, B. subtilis can pass through the gastric acid and reach the intestines alive.
Once in the intestines, the natto bacteria assist digestion, nutrients absorption and stimulate the immune system. It also helps other beneficial bacteria in the intestines to proliferate and improve the intestinal environment. When the amount of good bacteria exceeds the harmful bacteria, the microbiota enters into balance. The digestive and immune systems can perform their functions properly.
Make “opportunistic bacteria” your ally to create an ideal intestinal environment.
According to several estimations, more than 1000 types of intestinal bacteria coexist in our intestines, ranging from 600 to 1000 trillion. The ideal balance between good and harmful bacteria is a 2:1 proportion. Opportunistic bacteria can support either good or harmful bacteria and occupy the remaining 70% of the intestinal space. To make the opportunistic bacteria help the good bacteria, the population of this must be more extensive than that of the harmful bacteria. Hence, it is essential to maintain the 2:1 proportion.

1 teaspoon contains the same amount of natto bacteria as 10 packs of raw natto.
Bacillus subtilis grow naturally on rice straws. One of its survival mechanisms in hostile environments is forming spores. A spore is a resistant shell able to stand hot water at 100 degrees for more than 10 minutes, survive in vacuum and acid environments. This natural shield allows B. subtilis to pass through the gastric acid and reach the intestines alive. Natto powder contains B. subtilis in spore form compared to raw natto packed in styrofoam containers. An additional advantage is the high bacteria concentration; three capsules contain the same amount as ten standard natto packages. Once in the intestine, the natto bacteria produce nattokinase (a blood clogs dissolving enzyme) and vitamins that increase the populations of other good bacteria.
Well balanced nutrients,
necessary for the body.
Soy is an excellent protein source. It has an outstanding amino acid score of 100 points, placing it on the same level as pork meat and tuna. Soy contains all 9 essential amino acids that our body needs to make proteins. Natto is made by fermenting soybeans. Therefore it includes all soy’s high-quality proteins and unique ingredients such as nattokinase, polyglutamic acid, and vitamin K2. Another beneficial effect of fermentation is that the nutrients’ absorption rate also increases
The freeze-drying process preserves all natto nutrients, allowing their efficient intake. Use sonomono natto powder for enjoying natto’s exceptional nutrition and support health and beauty in a well-balanced manner.
Just sprinkle on the food!

Selected ingredients and production method
100% Japanese soybeans
The safety of our clients is our top priority. We exclusively use soybeans from the Organic Research Group in Kohoku Town, Saga Prefecture. This farmers association cultivates a native variety know as Fukuyutaka, famous for its fluffy grains and high nutrients content.
* The soybean production area may change due to natural disasters.
A method that releases the umami of the ingredients
Making natto is an art and science. The ingredients are simple: soy, water, and bacteria. However, it requires time-tested techniques and experienced hands for achieving the great flavor that makes our natto powder famous all over Japan.
Fillers-free, wholesome natto.
Reliable process that preserves natto probiotics and nutrients.
We use selected soybeans, rich in high-quality proteins and fatty acids that provide comprehensive nutrition for your body.
2. Soybean fermentation (natto)
The fermentation produces enzymes and other substances unique to natto. It also increments soy nutrients and their absorption rate.
Freeze-drying is a process that removes natto’s moisture by applying ultra-low temperatures. At the same time, it preserves the soy nutrients and increases the probiotics amount.
The fine powder can easily dissolve in food, allowing fast intake of natto nutrients and probiotics.
If you find natto aroma overwhelming, we recommend MILD with reduced smell and stickiness
There are two types of natto powder: regular and mild. Both contain the same amount of probiotics and nutrients; the difference resides in the aroma and flavor. We recommend REGULAR if you are accustomed to natto’s intense aroma and flavor, enjoy natto at 100%. If you are new to natto or tried it before but are afraid of its smell and stickiness, we suggest trying MILD.
※If you want to compare both, we recommend buying the trial set.

Posts from customers
Easy to carry, it’s handy!
Overseas stores only sell frozen natto. The flavor is different, and it is troublesome to thaw it, so I don’t like it. Natto powder is tasty. It has a pleasing aroma, stickiness and because of the resealable pouch, it’s easy to carry.
Love it with miso soup!
Natto soup made by adding natto to miso soup is a breakfast staple at my home, but sometimes I forget to buy fresh natto. I can easily use natto powder instead of raw natto in my miso soup and tastes great. What a valuable and tasty product!
I always bring it in my lunch box.
It’s delicious whether you sprinkle it on rice for lunch at work or put it in miso soup. It’s also safe. In summer, food spoils quickly. Because this powder is freeze-dried, it won’t rot. I can use it with peace of mind.
Unbeatable for adding natto nutrition!
It is handy because you can easily add natto savory and nutrition to food. I enjoy it sprinkling on breakfast or with ochazuke. As a mom, I appreciate the simplicity and safety of this product, I will continue using it.
