Characteristics of Soy Sauce

The difference between brewed and non-brewed soy sauce go far beyond production methods. Brewed soy sauce has almost 300 identifiable constituents amongst ingredients in food products.

The Mystery of Umami

While taste physiologists have traditionally pointed to four basic flavours - sweet, salty, sour and bitter - Japanese culture has long held the notion of a fifth flavour, umami. Today, umami is rapidly gaining acceptance in Western culture, thanks in no small part to the increasing popularity of Asian cuisine.
