Takuko White Soy Sauce is rare. With a long tradition in Japan, light
amber in color as well as cleaner and thinner than typical soy sauces,
this white soy infuses wonderful flavor without darkening the color of
The more subtle Shiro (or white) soy sauce involves more wheat and has a lighter color and sweeter flavor. The wheat is roasted in hot sand until it turns fox brown in color and yields a fragrant aroma. Then it is coarsely milled to resemble cracked wheat and a small amount of steamed soybeans are mixed with the fragrant, roasted wheat. The soybeans and wheat are mixed together and inoculated with koji seed. Because of this mildness, white soy sauce is a favorite of chefs & mixologists looking to add the flavor of soy without overpowering the flavors and colors of other ingredients.
