Soy Sauce

Some soy sauces are made in just a few days. Not Kikkoman. American-made Kikkoman® Soy Sauce is traditionally brewed and aged for full flavor from water, soybeans, wheat and salt. Its complex flavor, delicate aroma and appealing reddish-brown color complement and intensify the natural flavor, aroma and color of foods without masking or overpowering. Taste the difference and experience America's #1 soy sauce*. *Based on U.S. sales data during the 52-week period ending 12/30/23

Soy Sauce

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 their 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 Soy Sauces contain greater than 2% alcohol by volume. The alcohol is a result of the fermentation process.  Like wine or beer, our soy sauces are brewed and they are made from wheat, soybeans, 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 used. Please check the back of your label to see where the product was made.
