In cooking, no matter how simple or festive the dishes are, it is important to look at the quality of the ingredients—from the freshness of the meat and vegetables to the fineness of the herbs, spices, and seasonings. Quality is the key to making every meal delectable.
Soy sauce, for instance, a primary cooking ingredient, does a lot of wonders to food. For that reason, it is important to always use a high-quality brand. In choosing your soy sauce, you must look at how it was made: naturally-brewed or chemically-produced.
Chemically-produced soy sauce brands are made from several ingredients such as corn syrup, salt, caramel coloring, and other additives. While it adds saltiness and color to dishes, it doesn’t automatically bring out the savory flavors in food.
On the other hand, naturally-brewed soy sauce unleashes all the natural flavors of the other ingredients in your dish while enhancing its color and saltiness. This is what Kikkoman does to your food.

Kikkoman Soy Sauce is also very useful in improving the color and flavors of various soups. It is the perfect ingredient to lend a little extra taste and an enticing color to mushroom and vegetable soups, while just a few small teaspoons of it can unleash the superb savoriness of seafood in your chowder.
And just because soy sauce originated in Asia doesn’t mean that it can only be used for Asian recipes. It works perfectly well with recipes from all around the world. For umami-rich pasta, you can add a dash of Kikkoman Soy Sauce to your tomato-based or cream-based pasta. It also adds flavor to salads and salad dressings.
