What is white soy sauce?

White soy sauce (Shiro Shoyu) becomes mainly made from wheat and produced only a few soybeans. That gives her one very light color and one lighter taste compared to classic soy sauces. "Shiro" stands for light, "Shoyu" for soy sauce.

It is therefore often used as an ingredient wherever Umami should be added, but the color of the dish, such as sashimi, should not be too dark. That makes them very suitable for European dishes, which get more complexity through this sauce and its umami, without taking on a typically Japanese note.

This soy sauce has a reduced salt content of 15.5% (compared to 18% for the other white soy sauces) and the highest umami content among our white soy sauces.
