Soy sauce is a condiment found in many Asian cuisines. It is generally composed of a fermented paste of soybeans, brine, roasted grans, and Aspergillus sojae molds or oryzae. This popular condiment is dark brown in color and popular in mainstream consumption.
Soy Sauce appeals to the “fifth taste” known as “umami” or “meaty”. This earthy flavoring is rich in amino acids and salt. While high in salt, soy sauce also contains beneficial elements such as antioxidants and protein.
Store soy sauce in a cool, dark place until opened. After opening, the best flavor and shelf life is maintained in the fridge.
