My utter favorite -- Yamasa Less Salt Japanese soy sauce. Comes in a nice little bottle dispenser. Great with anything I'd want to use it for.

I am surprised to hear it is the third best selling condiment in the USA. I would certainly have thought mustard would be there.

Why would you write such a phrase on a food thread? Have some class.

I agree. Especially if you sweeten it just a little, it could easily mimic the flavor of soy sauce.

But ultimately, unless one suffers from celiac disease or a true allergy to soy or MSG (allergies that are quite uncommon), I'm not convinced that a tablespoon or two of soy sauce mixed into something that will serve 2-4 people is causing a physical problem.

Anywho, were off to Japan and south Korea in April. Looking forward to the food most of all. Including the soy sauce on my sashimi.

Yeah, I was very surprised, so I Confirmed it in a couple of places.

I thought that salsa would be in that top three. Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode about that?

Soy sauce is made from fermented soy with salt and it is the base for all kinds of sauces and seasoning liquids. For example sweetened and concentrated variety is teriyaki sauce. Then there are the seasoning versions that are made for tepanyaki or yakitori. So, there is no such thing as direct soy sauce substitutes if you know what soy sauce really is.

Natural soy sauce has a umami taste, a bit sour or gamey taste whatever register to your tastes buds. Majority of those soy sauce packets you get from take outs are not real say sauce and are bad for your health.

Plus naturally fermented soy sauce is very healthy compare to some of the fake soy sauce on the market that are chemically made.

I had to cut sodium because of a heart attack. Coco Aminos was the only substitute that was acceptable. Even low Sodium / Lite Soy Sauce has over 500mg of sodium in one tablespoon - that's one third of my daily allowance.

I will still occasionally have a good (high sodium) asian dinner, and wilseason it with soy sauce - but the days of asian food twice a week are over and done.

I don't think you should use soy sauce at all if you are on low sodium diet. Because one of the requirements to making soy sauce is salt. That's why there is no such thing as truly low sodium soy sauce.

I often eat sushi with very little soy sauce because it overpowers the taste of fish and seaweed.

For ramen I prefer miso over soy sauce flavor as the rich miso is more flavorful than just soy sauce.
