Secret Ingredient for a Richer Flavor

Kikkoman Soy Sauce plays an excellent supporting role. When pre-seasoning for a mild umami flavor or preparing stewed dishes, it shines in the role of uniting flavors together. It is also a wondrous seasoning that brings out the flavors of other ingredients.


    Add a drop of Kikkoman Soy Sauce to easily prepared dips. The dips will not become soy sauce-flavored, but the umami (savoriness) and rich taste of the soy sauce will mellow out and unify the dip’s flavor. Of course, you can increase the amount of soy sauce added to enjoy its stronger flavor.

    A Party Table Accompaniment

    When preparing food for a home party, having a Kikkoman Soy Sauce dispenser on the table will have it working in your favor. Guests have many varied preferences in taste, so leave it up to each guest to freely decide how much soy sauce they will add. And that’s how Kikkoman Soy Sauce can help make the event a success.


    Kikkoman Soy Sauce contains umami components composed of about 20 different amino acids. That is why when added to preseasonings of meat and fish, soy sauce masks odors and enriches the umami flavor.


    When used in simmered dishes, the timing of adding Kikkoman Soy Sauce makes all the difference. For example, when added at the start of simmering, the umami flavor will be soaked up by the ingredients. When quickly added at the end of cooking, the fresh aroma and salty flavor come through more.
