Kikkoman Soy Sauce is naturally brewed just like wine. A versatile flavour enhancer that brings out the taste in foods such as meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables without being overpowering.
The harmonious combination and subtle balance of the five basic flavors of sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami (savory) are what give Kikkoman Soy Sauce its delicious taste.
Specifically, Kikkoman Soy Sauce is particularly rich in umami components produced during the fermentation process. These umami components are composed of about 20 different amino acids generated as the enzyme of Koji mold breaks down proteins contained in soybeans and wheat.
During the fermentation process that occurs over several months, more than 300 different aroma components are generated within Kikkoman Soy Sauce, including those of flowers, fruits, whiskey, and coffee. Each of these aroma components occurs in such minute amounts that they cannot be individually identified, however, these blend together to create the distinctive aroma unique to Kikkoman Soy Sauce.
During cooking, the aroma of heated Kikkoman Soy Sauce stimulates the appetite. This aroma is one of the many reasons why Kikkoman soy sauce is the seasoning of choice around the world.
