Costco Soy Sauce: What is it?

What is a soy sauce?

When I first heard of this delicious soy sauce I was a little unsure of what to make with it.

So I decided to take a little more time to learn it and get some of the more common ingredients I might need from my grocery store to make it.

First off, let’s take a look at the soy sauce itself. 

It is made from soybeans, soy sauce (or soy sauce koji), and some other ingredients like soy milk and cornstarch.

What you need for this soy sauce: Soy sauce kojima (soy sauce) and soy milk, or soy sauce or other soy milk or cornstarchy ingredients, for a base. 

I used soy soy sauce and corn starch. 

Soy sauce or soy milk is usually a much cheaper soy sauce than corn starch or other non-soy ingredients. 

A couple of quick notes about soy sauce ingredients: Soy milk contains a lot of sugar.

It is often used as a sweetener, but soy sauce can also be used as an emulsifier.

Soy milk is generally not fermented by heat.

It’s usually boiled for longer and is then drained and mixed into the soy. 

If you don’t want to add any sugar to your soy sauce base, you can use a low-sugar, low-fructose corn syrup like SoyLite. 

For a slightly sweeter base, I used Corn Starch and Sugar-Free Soy Sauce. 

 To make your base for your soy sauces, I use soy sauce powder. 

To do this, you will need a food processor or blender, a bowl, and a saucepan.

The ingredients to make a soy sauces base: Soy Sauce powder.
