Delivery to UK and EU only

A saltier kind of soy sauce.

If you find most standard 'dark' soy sauces too strong in flavour, or if you want to try a slightly different soy sauce, Higashimaru's light soy sauce is where you should set your sights. Based on the soy sauces originally invented in Japan's Kansai region, this soy sauce has been made with more salt than dark soy sauces, allowing for a flavour that is both saltier and less fermented. This sauce goes particularly well with Kansai cuisine, or with foods requiring more subtle umami flavours.

ITEM ID: #882


Soy sauce is one of Japan’s most utilised flavourings, and not without good reason. Soy sauce is rich in the L-Glutamates that generate savoury umami flavour, making it an ideal addition to any Asian or non-Asian dish that requires an extra umami hit. For a great range of light, dark, organic, reduced-salt, and other varieties of soy sauce, take a look at Japan Centre's Soy Sauce section.
