Is Your Sauce Boss?

Toss your whisk into Kikkoman’s ring by visiting our Facebook page to enter the Kikkoman Master Sauce Challenge.

Show us how Kikkoman Soy Sauce is your secret weapon in your famed barbeque sauce, marinade, dressing or stir fry sauce.

Because of the more than 285 flavor and aroma components in naturally brewed Kikkoman Soy Sauce, its applications go far beyond simply using it as a condiment for take-out Chinese dishes or sushi. Kikkoman Soy Sauce acts as a subtle flavor enhancer, rounding out and heightening the other ingredients in a dish. It also contains umami, the fifth primary flavor, described as the savory and delicious qualities found in some foods, such as Parmesan and tomatoes. Umami is newly discovered by science, but long understood by our palates. When umami is balanced properly with the other four primary flavors “sweet, salty, bitter and sour” the food, whether it be pastry, pizza or pasta, is ultimately more delectable.
