Give your cooking an umami boost.

For a delicious, mellow, savoury flavour, Yamasa's kombu kelp tsuyu soup stock is hard to beat. This concentrated tsuyu also contains fish and shiitake mushroom extract to further highlight its umami quality. Ideal for using in oden hot pots, hot and cold noodle dishes, and tempura soups.

ITEM ID: #5490


Tsuyu is one of the most handy ingredients to have in any Japanese pantry, as it is essentially three of the most important seasonings in Japanese cuisine rolled into one. A combination of dashi soup stock for umami, soy sauce for saltiness (and a little extra umami), and mirin rice wine for sweetness, a bottle of tsuyu is often all you need to bring Japanese flavour to a wide variety of dishes. For a great range of tsuyu, take a look at's Tsuyu section.

I use this as a base for a variety of noodle dishes. It is subtle and accepts other flavours readily.
