My source for the natto starter is cultures for health. I use organic non GMO soy beans from my local health food store. I cannot find the small soy beans traditionally used for natto, so I use the regular beans and they work fine.

    Hey, welcome!
    That's a great article.
    So how do you like natto, did you acquire a taste for it, or do you just choke it down?
    How hard is it to make, any tips for a newbie?

      That said, my first taste of natto was my last. If something could make me lose my appetite, that was it. Dear lord the stuff is foul.
      That's amazing, I don't think I could eat balut. I hope I can eat natto. The pictures of it actually look good to me, but I guess its all about the smell and texture. I think I can get over the texture, and I could plug my nose...

        Didn't read any other suggestions, but eat grass fed cheeses and butter to up your K2 naturally. I don't supplement cause I get plenty of both. If you non dairy paily I would definitely supplement.

          Well, all japanese grocery stores have it, in these tiny little styrofoam rectanglular boxes. But made from non-GMO organic soybeans? Good luck, you might find them... You just have to try this uniquely controversial stink bomb of a highly medicinal food. You''ll either hate or love 'em instantly... haha

            This is basically me(minus the growing up in Asia - though I've spent a few years of my life there). Fermented foods? No problem. Raw foods? Love it. Bizarre meat and vegetables that I can't identify, and can't speak enough of the local language to find out what they are? Been there , done that, plenty of times.

            Natto? Barely got the first bite down, and didn't attempt the second. I'll take my supplement and call it a day.

              I eat natto regularly, and I don't think it bears any resemblance to blue cheese taste wise. It's much more tasteless.

              What newbies have to overcome is the slimy texture.

              I like to mix some soy sauce and wasabi into my natto. Yum.

                Ditto. I felt like I got a glob of someone's snot in my mouth ---> immediate barfing.

                  Just found out my local sushi place sells ready to eat natto! So I'm going to try it soon!

                    Or you could just get a bucket of fish roe (flying fish and smelt are both good) from your local Asian market, which is relatively inexpensive and also yummy wrapped in seaweed on a rice bed.
