Hoisin Sauce

Hoisin—the classic Asian cooking sauce and condiment made with puréed plums, miso and soy sauce—is as versatile as it is robustly flavorful. As a brush-on basting sauce, it adds sweet-savory flavor and attractive reddish-brown color to grilled or roasted meat, poultry, seafood and vegetables. It's ideal in stir-fries, noodle and rice bowls, sauces and dressings. And as a condiment or dipping sauce, it can be used for everything from traditional Asian-style roasted duck or Mu Shu Pork to wraps, chicken wings and fried appetizers.

Hoisin Sauce Faqs

Once opened, the soy sauce will start to lose its freshness and the flavor will begin to change. By refrigerating the sauce, the flavor and quality will remain at its peak for a longer period. As long as no water or other ingredients have been added to the soy sauce, it would not spoil if it had not been refrigerated.
Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauces have a small amount of alcohol since they are all made with traditionally brewed Kikkoman Soy Sauce. Kikkoman Soy Sauce is a fermented product like beer and is made from soybeans, wheat, salt and water. During the fermentation process, the wheat starches are broken down to sugars and part of the sugar is changed into alcohol. Also, some of our teriyaki sauces have wine or mirin (rice wine) as an ingredient.
The flavor of our other sauces will decline much quicker than our soy sauce. So they should be refrigerated after opening to preserve their quality.
Yes, Kikkoman offers gluten-free Tamari, Sesame Oil, Panko, Thai Style Chili Sauce, Sweet & Sour Sauce, Oyster Sauce, Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce and Soymilk.
Our Best By Date is written as Day, Month and Year. For example, a printed Best By Date of 10MAR20 would indicate the unopened product should be used before March 10, 2020 for the best quality.
For the best quality, we recommend using the sauces within one month of opening.
Our tabletop dispenser was first introduced in Japan in 1961 and it is now recognized worldwide as an iconic symbol for Kikkoman Soy Sauce. The dispenser bottle was designed by Kenji Ekuan, a well-known industrial designer. In 2005, the dispenser was added to New York's Museum of Modern Art Collection. To learn more about our dispenser, please click HERE. To open the dispenser bottle, first remove the outer plastic seal and cap from the bottle. Then, remove the plastic insert from either inside the cap or on top of the bottle and screw the cap back on. If you have difficulty twisting off the cap, we suggest running the unopened bottle under hot water for a minute and then use a rubber gripper or a wet cloth to carefully twist off the cap

Kikkoman Soy Sauces contain greater than 2% alcohol by volume. The alcohol is not added, but is a result of the fermentation process. Like wine or beer, our soy sauces are brewed and they are made from soybeans, wheat, salt and water. During fermentation, the wheat starches are broken down to sugars and part of the sugar is changed into alcohol.
The all-purpose Kikkoman Soy Sauce and the Kikkoman Less Sodium Soy Sauce are brewed at the Kikkoman Foods, Inc. plant in Walworth, WI where there are no peanuts or tree nuts ingredients. Please check the back of your label to see where the product was made.
For 2-quart containers or larger, they may still have a production code printed on the container's neck instead. The code is the top (or first set) of printed numbers and letters. The three-digit number before the letters refers to the Day-of-the-Year (like the Ordinal Date or Julian Day Calendar), followed by letters that represent the year. All our sauces manufactured in 2021 will have the letters "BA". The letters "BX" were used for 2020, "AW" were used for 2019 and "AT" for 2018. These 2 letters will be followed by W, which means it was produced in Wisconsin. If your Kikkoman product has any other letters, then the product was made over five years ago.  For unopened products in plastic bottles, the soy sauce should be used within two years of its production date code, and, the teriyaki marinade & sauce, rice vinegars, and other Asian sauces generally should be used within 18 months.
