Tamari Soy Sauce

In its earlier days, Japanese soy sauce was darker with a stronger taste and aroma. Kikkoman now offers U.S. foodservice operators this heritage flavor with the introduction of Kikkoman® Tamari Soy Sauce. Traditionally brewed like our traditional soy sauce, Kikkoman® Tamari Soy Sauce is thicker, darker and stronger in taste. A touch of wheat enhances the sauce's flavor and color, which provides depth and balance to savory foods.

Tamari 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.
