Here's an interesting piece by the BBC on what they call a polarising food item: fermented soybeans.

I personally love natto and have it at least once a week. My wife hates it. Nattoumaki, natto over rice, ika natto... 😋

The Japanese have long hailed nattō as a superfood and believe that consumption is linked to improved blood flow and reduced risk of stroke – factors that are particularly appealing in a country that is home to one of the world’s oldest populations.

I don't like it but am happy that my kids do as I know it's healthy for them. They are not eating it as much now. Previously they would eat natto when I was not home for dinner due to business trip or something but I haven't left the house in months. My wife especially likes it because natto gohan or natto spaghetti is easy to prepare.
