Miso soups generally are low calorie because they are very low in fat and carbohydrates, if you are making a miso soup with merely miso paste and Japanese stock, then your cup of miso soup is likely to be below 50 calories.
If you are adding other ingredients such as tofu and spring onions then your miso soup is likely to be around 100 calories.
Miso soup, because of its high umami flavours from the amino acids in the fermented soybeans, scores high in satiety. In other words, miso can make you feel satisfied very quickly, and can really take the edge off if you are feeling peckish. This is why miso soup is such a popular snack for those on a calorie controlled diet, or need a satisfying snack whilst on the go. It is also a great base for a low calorie meal if you simply add some noodles and vegetables to it, why not try adding a poached egg and some greens to it for a nourishing hot snack?
