Usukuchi (light colored) shoyu is not your typical soy sauce, meaning this is not the one you use for dipping your sushi into. This style of shoyu is a seasoning and is made for cooking. Think of it like you would salt. This wonderful light bodied brew from Suehiro has a complex aroma of fruity umami and the taste is much of the same with a slightly caramel umami. Produced from only Japanese-grown soybeans, wheat and natural sea salt. Use this to season soups, simmered dishes, etc.
