Usukuchi soy sauce 6 was invented about two thousand years ago, making use of a process identical to the one we are using in the present. In order to make it soy sauce, roasted wheat and soybeans are mixed and inoculated with the Aspergillus mold or Koji. (Koji is the same mold that makes miso paste and sake.) In three or four days the mixture of soybeans, wheat, and koji is mixed with salt and water to form a dense Mash. The mash is put into large vats, where it is fermented typically over 18 to 24 months or more after which it is it is strained and then bottled.

Soy sauces are available styled Chinese or styled in Japan. Chinese-style soy sauces are traditionally made from 100 percent soy and Japanese-style sauces are made from the combination of wheat and soy (usually fifty/50). This gives Japanese sauces a more sweet, more complex flavor in comparison to their Chinese counterparts which tend to be more salty and abrasive. Shoyuis is the term used to describe the Japanese-style soy sauce that can be lighter (usukuchi) as well as deep (koikuchi).

Tamariis soy sauce-like product that was developed as a by-product from making miso.

(Many Tamaris are available these days do, however, contain some wheattherefore, if you're worried about gluten, be sure to read the label.)
