white miso delivered red?

Postby corvid on Thu Jun 30, 2016 8:18 am

I bought some white miso on Amazon. UPS took 8 days to deliver it, going through very hot weather to get here. And while the package is labeled as white, it's the color of red miso, quite dark. Presumably it continued to ferment in those hot trucks? It's made from soybeans and rice. I've not made miso before - how long does it normally take to progress from white to red? And the main question is that, since I've not eaten red before, taste-testing it is awkward in that I don't know how it should taste. Any opinions on whether this miso is likely safe to eat or not? Short of a foul odor, how do you know if it's bad?

Having recently made the mistake of eating cooked kidney beans that were a bit too old and that, despite smelling and tasting fine, left me in some pain for 24 hours, I'm being kinda cautious.
