Kikkoman Soy Sauce
Kikkoman Soy Sauce
Kikkoman Soy Sauce is produced from carefully selected ingredients: its fine aroma is composed of roughly 300 different components, while its well-balanced mix of the five basic flavors satisfies the palate.
Kikkoman users around the world know that this seasoning enhances not only Asian cuisines, but Western dishes as well. This is proven by the fact that Kikkoman Soy Sauce is requested in more than 100 countries.
Ingredients and the Fermentation Process:
Naturally brewed soy sauce is made using only four basic ingredients: soybeans, wheat, salt and water. Careful selection is required for these simple ingredients, as they directly influence the flavor and aroma of the soy sauce.
The reason Kikkoman Soy Sauce is called an all-purpose seasoning is that this sauce is a helpful adjunct not only to Japanese cuisine, but to all kinds of dishes. Whether used in food preparation, during cooking or as the finishing touch to a dish, soy sauce significantly improves the flavor of food.
Differences Between Kikkoman Soy Sauce and Chinese Soy Sauce
The major differences between Kikkoman and Chinese soy sauce can be found in their ingredients and brewing methods. In terms of ingredients, Kikkoman Soy Sauce uses wheat, which creates the aroma of soy sauce. Chinese soy sauce utilizes wheat flour and bran, and when these are used, the aroma of the soy sauce is significantly weakened. Wheat is indispensable to the rich aroma of Kikkoman Soy Sauce, which stimulates the appetite.
During brewing, Kikkoman Soy Sauce utilizes microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria and enzymes in the fermentation process. These are the elements that produce the full-bodied flavor and rich aroma unique to Kikkoman Soy Sauce.
Chinese soy sauce undergoes very little fermentation; it has both weak aroma and flavor owing to the lack of this fermentation, and to cover these defects, MSG and other additives are used.
Both of these products are called soy sauce—yet the two are completely different, not only in flavor and aroma, but also in terms of their ingredients and production processes.
