Warm up your customers during the winter months by enhancing your heartier dishes with the authentic taste of ‘umami’, the often-elusive fifth flavour that the Japanese traditionally describe as “more than delicious”.

Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce is the ideal way to enrich this season’s winter meals with the terrific umami touch, adding richness and fully rounded flavour.

Many chefs use powdered “boosters” to enhance flavour, but Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce is a natural alternative to these – one which enables you to avoid the undesirable addition of MSG to your meals.

In fact Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce is made from just four high quality natural ingredients. It’s also free of artificial colours, flavours, preservatives or GM ingredients.

The complex yet mellow flavour bouquet of Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce will blend well with your other ingredients – enhancing and complementing the flavours of your winter recipes, but never overwhelming them.

As the name suggests, Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce owes its authentic flavour to its natural brewing process, followed in accordance with time-honoured Japanese tradition.

Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce is aged like a fine wine. The natural fermentation process, which lasts up to six months, releases a high concentration of about 20 different amino acids. This generates a synergy of intricately balanced flavours, imparting a genuine ‘umami’ to the sauce.

With the colder months well upon us, Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce is the ideal complement to your menu and a must-have ingredient for marinading, seasoning and braising roasts. You can also use it to enrich broths, gravies and casseroles, or to add extra depth of flavour to winter favourites like burgers and meatballs.

And in addition to its other attributes, Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce is also an effective way of reducing sodium levels in menu items while enhancing flavour – just use it in place of salt in your favourite winter recipes.

Its subtle flavour, made up of more than 285 taste and aroma components, will always enhance but never overpower or detract from your dish’s main ingredients.

So this winter, make sure you make Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce on hand in both back and front of house – it’s truly a must-have menu item to help customers keep the season’s chills at bay!
