How to Distinguish Quality Soy Sauce?

Soy sauce is one of the most widely used sauces in the culinary world. The history of this sauce originates in the country of China thousands of years ago.

Buddhists initially found a use for soybeans by preparing a spice from it. Later they are allowed to consume meat and sauces made from it. This is how the idea of ​​soy sauce was created, which is gaining more and more popularity today.

What does quality soy sauce contain and how to distinguish it?

Quality traditional soy sauce contains soy, water, salt and wheat. Most of all, it does not contain any additional additives.

The other indicator you should pay attention to is the information on the label. In the composition of soy sauce, the amount of protein is most important. The rule of quality sauce states that a higher amount of protein is a clear sign of the sauce's nutritional value.

It is also advisable to avoid buying soy sauce, which contains more than its main four components.

Sauces are available in stores with 5-7 ingredients each, which make the taste of soy sauce significantly different from the natural traditional recipe.

The other indicators you can use are the color, the taste and smell of the sauce.

While the taste and smell cannot be sensed before purchase, the color can serve as a guide.

It should be deep dark brown or dark yellow. However, dark red sauces, which lean more towards black, are widely distributed. You need to be extra careful with these, as these colors are most likely due to added acids or other types of additives.
