Yamasa is a traditional soy sauce manufacturer that has been brewing soy sauce since 1645. This premium soy sauce is brewed slowly through natural fermentation with no artificial flavorings or additives resulting in an incredibly deep and rich flavor backed by a lingering umami. Usukuchi is a light soy sauce made using a special process that results in a lighter color. Usukuchi is used for keeping the color of foods appetizing while still adding the full-bodied flavor of soy sauce. It is commonly used in soups, sauces, and braises to retain more natural color for upscale meals such as kaiseki.
Light soy sauce is essential in achieving aesthetic food where the vibrant colors are not masked by the dark color of soy!
