I cast another vote for the Maggi.

Also fish sauce, it's the soy sauce of SE Asia.

Many of the Liquid Aminos that advertise themselves as healthy and a substitute to soy sauce have 340 mg sodium which is hardly low sodium.

I use Bragg's liquid aminos as a one to one substitute for standard soy sauce.

I agree with some previous posters that Maggi is better than soy sauce

https://www.chicagotribune.com/dinin...810-story.html

Quote:
It’s made from fermented wheat protein and loaded with glutamic acids (not gluten free), which accounts for the rich, meaty, savory, umami-face punch the sauce provides. (For Australian friends, it’s not far off from Vegemite.) Think the taste of well-seasoned and well-charred roast beef.

A few months ago I remember sitting at Podhalanka, the Polish restaurant in West Town, with my friend Dan Pashman. Pashman is host of the terrific The Sporkful podcast on WNYC and he’s no food slouch. And yet he never heard of Maggi sauce until that day, when he splashed a few drops into his dill cabbage soup. When he returned to New York, Pashman told me he immediately mail ordered a bottle.

“It’s like soy sauce on crack,” Pashman said. “It’s this umami, kind of sweet, rich, fatty, salt and sharp flavor. You could put it on everything. I think you should try it on ice cream.”

There are substitutes but many people wouldn't like them.

This is not meant to be a joke - the salinity of the real thing, or "real thing" if it's like wasabi and the vast majority is mockery of the original stuff, is difficult to substitute.

Default Maggi is German soy sauce

I use Maggi a lot. Just today I put a tablespoon of Maggi in my braised lentils.

I always tell people Maggi is German soy sauce.

Maggi Seasoning tastes just like soy sauce. I quit buying Maggi and now just use low sodium soy sauce for the same results.

Chinese soy sauce does not taste like Japanese soy sauce. People are often not aware there is a difference.
